Mums death

Hi there I lost my mum suddenly last year and still struggling to cope with it x


Hello @Sallysmith,

I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,


I lost my mum too flu it soo hard after caring for mum for years battled with every single bug and flu took mum out

I also lost my mum suddenly 2 years ago to a brain haemorrhage and although to some it seems long ago, the pain never goes. Even when you get on with your life, at the back of your mind you know that there is someone that’s supposed to be sharing these experiences with you that is gone. The gaping hole is just there. It’s not an easy feeling at all!

I know how you feel, nothing is the same, no experience is as good as it was before. A gaping hole is exactly what it is.
