Hello @Misslammas ,

I can see that you’re new to the community, so I wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your sister that brings you here.

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

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

Take care,


So sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. There is still so much stigma attached to addiction which makes it even harder for you to cope with her loss .Take care of yourself and talk about your sister the good times and the not so good times if you can.
