Hi Garethj88,

I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your parents. It’s understandable that you’re finding this really tough and you’ll find that there are others in this community who are also struggling with a similar loss. It might be worth having a browse of the losing a parent category to connect with others going through something similar:

Do you have a good support network around you? Friends or other other close family members, perhaps? Having that support can make a difference, but this community is also here for you when you need us.

If you feel that some additional support would be helpful now or in the future then we offer bereavement counselling to community members. This is a free service and sessions are held online so you can attend from home. There’s more information about that here:

Take care,
