Hi I’m new joined today needed some support so searched and found you here it’s very raw about losing my dad cos it was 2 weeks ago and would like to know how others are managing please say hi to me
Welcome, though I’m really sorry you find yourself here under these sad circumstances.
This community is lovely and always there to listen x
Hi Pixiee, sorry to hear this. You’ll find lots of people who can relate, on this forum .
@Pixiee hey, sorry you’re in this situation. You’re amongst ppl that understand how awful grief is. Taking things slowly & hour by hour is my advice. There’s no short cut thru grief. Take care. X
Hi I’m new here too - my dad died 2 weeks ago today,
I feel totally lost like everything is the same but I feel totally different.
I went back to work today and in between my normal day to day job I was arranging the final things for my dads funeral next week.
I can’t sleep at night cause I’m scared of sleeping for some strange reason?
Death and grief are really hard to navigate.
Hi Pixiee, sorry to hear about your loss, like many on here I am always happy to have a chat and it can be about anything. It’s tough but you have took a positive step in reaching out x
Feeling scared of sleeping is not daft. I was the same in the early days, scared of being scared I guess. Not knowing if going to sleep will make you feel worse, if you ever need a chat give me a shout x
Awww I’m here for you if u want to chat it’s horrible I know
Yea like when I wake up will I have the dread feeling know what u mean
That’s what it is - I’m scared of being scared I think. It’s really irrational? But it’s such a strong feeling.
Yes I open my eyes and the feelings flood in. I feel like I’m hurtling through time sometimes and other times I feel like I’m just an observer. It really is hard to navigate isn’t it.
It’s not irrational at all, grief doesn’t have a set of instructions on how to deal with it. Everyone is different but I think at times people are too scared to say how they feel because they think they are the only ones feeling it, when in reality a lot of people feel the same way x
Hello my lovely, i feel your pain. I lost my dad 29th Dec. Its was very unexpected.
I dont think you ever stop grieving, but hopefully talking to individuals on here family and friends will help. I talk about my dad every single day.
When dad passed away i threw myself into organising everything and wasnt really looking after myself but now i am taking time out for myself although im still going through the grieving process and will be for a long time.
