Lost my mum 3 year ago

I lost my mum 3 years ago next month. I still struggle to cope and still think every day about killing myself so I can be with her again.

Hey there…

I don’t know what to say or do other than send you a big, warming hug & tell you that you can get through this.

Please, if you haven’t already, seek some help. You’re already in the right place by being on this site.

Bless you, & keep strong x

I’ve kept strong and realised people out there are in worse places

Hi Dan,
I’m so sorry to hear about your mum, and that you’re struggling to cope and thinking every day about ending your life. It sounds as though things are very tough
and you are feeling really overwhelmed.
I think you could really do with some support and I’m glad that you’ve been
able to talk about how you’re feeling here. There is lots of other support out
there, and I would really encourage you to reach out and speak to someone
about how you are feeling.
The Samaritans are always there 24/7 if you need to talk about anything that’s
bothering you (116 123, or jo@samaritans.org).
You can also make an appointment with your GP and ask to be referred to
counselling or other support services in your area.
We offer online bereavement counselling to members of this community. This
is a free service and sessions are held via video chat so you can attend from
home. There’s more information about this service here:
You deserve care and support so please, Dan, get in touch with one of
these services.
If you are at risk of harming yourself, please call 999, go to A&E or contact
your GP for an emergency appointment immediately.
Take care,
Online Community team
