Lost my mum

Lost my mum suddenly in January. I feel worse now than I did then. Feel like I am being sucked into a hole I can’t get out of. I’m not functioning properly and don’t know what to do. I am just so low, so sad and don’t know how to feel better without her


I’m so sorry for your loss. I too have lost my mum in June. I totally sympathise with you… Feel like I’ve lost my right arm. :purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart:

I know exactly how you feel as I lost my mum in March, people keep telling me that it’ll get easier in time but I find it’s getting harder, the more time that passes the more I miss her :frowning:

I just feel so sad and empty all the time, I’m sorry I’m probably not much help but find that other people going through similar situations helps a little.


Hi, I can empathise, my Mum also died suddenly and unexpectedly in January. There’s no words or magical way to ease the pain of such a loss. Just know that generally speaking Mums are protective of their children and wouldn’t want them to suffer. I try to imagine what my mum would say if she knew I was upset. This gives me a little strength to grit my teeth and keep going. That’s all we can do, try hard to live our lives in the physical absence of our Mums. Small comforts help me; I have a special photo framed where I can see it, with flowers in vases nearby. I also have a large pot in my garden which has some of my Mum’s ashes in, I’ve filled it with flowering plants. Keeping a journal of my feelings and memories is also something that I have found helpful. I hope in time you’ll find things that help you too. I also regularly check in on this forum as reading the posts normalises everything I feel and responding helps me to process my thoughts. Best wishes xx
