Missing my daughter my best friend

I new to this. My beautiful daughter passed away on the 24 November 2022 this year. Not even done her funeral yet. I heart is broken into. I cry every day it hurts. I feel like things will never get better. Feel like this pain I’m feeling will never go away. My beautiful daughter was 23 years old died a week after her 23rd birthday. She suffered really bad from mental health issues. Which lead her to drugs .

Hello @NikkiF929, thank you for starting this thread and bravely reaching out. I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter - that is devastating. Your loss is so very recent so it is understandable that you are feeling like things will never get better. You might wish to take a look at our Grief Guide, as it can walk you through some of what you may experience in the coming weeks and months. The community is here for you too; many members have experienced the loss of a child and will understand some of what you are going through.

When you are ready, there is an organisation called The Compassionate Friends, which support anyone who has lost a child. They have a helpline on 0345 123 2304 or you can email them at helpline@tcf.org.uk. They also have a Grief Companion scheme where you can get 1-1 peer support from another bereaved parent. You can find out more about that here: https://www.tcf.org.uk/grief-companions/

Thank you again for reaching out - you are not alone.

Take care
