I lost my dad about 6 weeks ago. He died on the bus coming back from work. Went into a diabetic coma then a heart attack which killed him. Worse part was seeing of this in the worcester news. On front page. FB etc… Broke our hearts that way.
His funeral was very quick after. But I’m struggling do much. I work at the hospital as a receptionist. And I only had a week off. On antidepressant tablets now. Like my mum. And I suffer with epilepsy.
It’s so hard just work bit my partner says it’s the best as losing money. But I feel so alone now that he’s gone. He was my rock. I need help in talking about him. My partner goes quiet if I talk about him. So ii only cry at work or at mums.
Miss him so do much. And I’m keeping a brave face. But I can’t.
I’m sorry to read that you lost your dad recently. You are certainly not alone. I lost my beloved mum to a catastrophic brain hemorrhage in June. 27 weeks have gone past and I miss her so much. It feel like it all happened a week or two ago that’s all. It was so shocking. She was only going in for a day operation and coming out the next day.
I have struggled so much with her leaving us. There are a group of us who chat regularly on this site who have all lost our parents. It’s been a great comfort to us all.
Please feel free to chat to us x
Hi Kimberley, so sorry to hear of your very recent loss. I lost my mum suddenly whilst she was on holiday with us. Here one day enjoying herself and then gone the next. I still struggle 16 weeks on with wrapping my head around what happened and dealing with the horrible flashbacks of the day itself. As Cheryl says, there are some lovely people here who are chatting about how they are feeling and dealing with the grief they unfortunately are suffering. It’s a great place to talk with people who care and will listen to whatever you want to say. There are always others who can relate to whatever you are feeling at any particular time. I know just how hard going to work can be at times like this. You don’t have to put on a brave face for us. Please feel free to get it all off your chest here, you are very much not on your own.

Kimberly, I’m sorry for your loss. Its very early days for you at 6 weeks. My Mum passed away suddenly 11 weeks ago from pneumonia and a heart attack, It still feels like early days for me too. Take care.
There’s a lovely group of people on these forums, so keep posting.
Hi, my heart goes out to you as I lost my dad 3 months ago and I can barely believe I’m typing it. It feels so alien to say it, “he died” some days I can say it so matter of factly, others I can only whisper it because it’s too much emotionally to say it any louder. I guess it’s still early days for me too but sometimes it feels like a lifetime ago. I feel stuck and don’t know if I even want to move. X
My heart goes out to each and every person here that has replied to me. And who hasn’t.
It’s so so hard to carry on. I feel so emotional. Angry. Frightened. That I can’t carry on. I miss him so much. Right here and now I’m only getting help from my friends not my partner. And that’s upsetting too. I only have my mum now. And I’m so frightened to lose her. Just frightened.
