Hi, I lost my dad a year ago, a recent relationship breakdown has triggered something in me and my grief at the moment is unbearable. I can’t sleep or eat, I’m crying nonstop. I really need my dad now to talk to and to tell me everything will be ok but obviously he can’t be here. I’m really struggling to hold it together
Hello, sorry for the difficulties you are going through. I guess it’s only natural to want your Dad’s support during this time when you’re feeling so emotional about a breakup. It brings back the loss into sharp focus. Do you have anyone else who might be able to support you? Xx
