Dear @Martelaine

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your partner. Grief has no time limit and it is a journey to be taken at your pace. It is ok to cry as there will be good days and bad days with the rollercoaster ride of emotions that go with bereavement. All of which is normal.

Have you seen this blog by Sue Ryder Losing a Partner , it may be of help to you along with the following resources. The Grief Coach may especially be of help to you.

  • The self-help platform which has information, resources and advice to help you through your grief Grief Guide
  • Grief Coach text service, which sends you personalised text support via SMS. This service is also useful for family and friends
  • Information on the Stages of Grief
  • Our Bereavement Information pages which can walk you through what you are going through

Have you thought about talking out aloud to your partner as this will help with the grieving process and some people find it does help them on their journey of grief.

We the Community are here for you, you are not alone, we understand the pain of losing a loved one. Keep talking to us here. Take care, sending you hugs.

It’s definitely a journey that tests all your limits. I’m 10 weeks in and find I have some good days a fair few not so good. I try to find things to do to keep me occupied as this helps me stay on top of things. Some days however I just absorb the pain and have a day of sadness. There’s always another day tomorrow!
