Hi Maxine, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mum. Such shocking circumstances too. It’s a terrible loss. You are right at the start of this journey. I lost my mum 8 months ago today, unexpectedly just 8 days after a cancer diagnosis. I could hardly breathe in those first few weeks. I remember thinking I was going to die of the pain. I struggled to cope with it and had horrific nightmares that made me frightened to go to sleep. My heart goes out to you. Go with grief as it comes. I promise it does get easier even though you can’t imagine it ever will. We are all here for you to vent and share your feelings as much or as little as you want. We have all experienced and still going through this excruciating pain. Sending you lots of love, Helen xxx
