My boy

Hi, I lost my 9 year old boy 13 months ago after fighting a rare disease and I’m really struggling, always crying, always feeling depressed, he was my best friend aswel as my boy and I feel so empty


Hi @Shane1,

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 boy, that sounds incredibly difficult, but I want to reassure you that you are not alone.

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 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 with us all.

Take care,
Online Community Team
