I lost my mum four months ago. She was 45, I’m 24. It was a sudden death, she was my closest friend, the bond we had was so unique and I’m so glad we had that. I really can’t get my head around the fact shes gone, it just doesn’t feel real that she’s gone, it almost just feels like she gone on a long holiday and is never coming back. I know she’s gone but not gone gone as she’s always with me in my heart wherever I go!


Hey @elanya.faye I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is hard at any age, especially when you’re young and had such a good relationship with your mum.
I lost my mum 18months ago, we lost pur dad as baboes, so mum was both parents to us. She had us at an early age, so she gave her life to raising us and being there for her grandkids.
The first few months were the worst for me, memories were hard and remembering her was even harder. But those memories soon started to turn into happy memories. Instead of being sad remembering mum, I now smile. Knowing that I was lucky to have her in my life for so long.
You’re at the start of your journey, so try not to be too hard on yourself. Allow yourself time to grieve, to cry, to miss and to mourn the passing of your mum.
This group has helped me in lots of ways. I now know I’m not the only one grieving the loss of a parent and I know my thoughts are natural.
Take care and lean on loved ones where you can, if you can’t, this group will help x

Hi Elanya.faye,
I am so sorry you are going through this.
You are so young and so was your mum.
Paul has written everything I would say to you.
Take small steps every day. Rest chill, sleep and eat something to keep yourself as strong as possible so you can cope with your grief.
It’s the raw stage for you so it’s so tough going.
Keep posting on here as this site is a lifesaver and there are such lovely kind people who will offer you support
Sending love

Hey, my mum passed away in March this year, she was 55 and I’m 32. It’s a very difficult concept to come to terms with, and it still doesn’t feel real to me.

I’m really sorry for your loss, but I just wanted to send my love and support. X
