Mydaughter

My daughter ended her life

I am so lost

Dear Jojo,

I’m so sorry your daughter has died. I cannot even begin to imagine what you must be going through right now.

I’m glad that you’ve found our Online Community and I hope that it helps a little to be able to share things here. Please know that you’re not alone. While you wait for responses to your post, you might want to read past conversations from other users who have also lost their children to suicide.

Alison lost her son to suicide last December: https://support.sueryder.org/community/losing-child/loosing-my-son-through-suicide?field_harmony_thread=1813

Marlie’s son took his own life last May: https://support.sueryder.org/community/losing-child/son’s-suicide-no-one-understands

Are you receiving any kind of support? If you’re not, it might be a good idea to visit your GP so they can advise you or refer you to counseling.

There’s also a charity called Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide who offer several kinds of support services to those affected by suicide, including a helpline and local support groups: https://uksobs.org/we-can-help/

If there’s anything I can help with, or you have any questions about using this site, you can email me on online.community@sueryder.org, or send me a private message.

Best wishes,

Irene

I am so sorry for the loss of your Daughter…There are many people on this sight who have lost their Son’s and Daughter’s myself included and it is the worst possible nightmare you could ever imagine, but to lose one in such tragic circumstances must be unbearable for you…I am afraid nothing I will say will give you much comfort you just have to take step by step…Thinking of you…Big hug and kisses…xx

My daughter died of cancer on Dec 21st. her 48th birthday would have been Dec31st.I subsequently had a mini stroke. Life is so precious and so fragile. God bless you.

My daughter ended her life six weeks ago and I am in such pain. Completely heartbroken and can’t see myself continuing as nothing can change what happened. It is only my other children who stop me from following her as I could not put them through it again.
