Hi TS,

I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve lost your mum. No, you aren’t alone, the feelings that you describe are a very common part of grief, and I’m sure lots of users on this site can relate.

Things will still be very raw for you and it’s important to be kind to yourself and give yourself time to grieve. Bottling up emotions can make grief worse, so try to find an outlet for them, whether that’s by talking with friends or family, or by writing them down on this site.

While you wait for some more replies to your post, you may find it helpful to read and maybe reply to some recent conversations between others who have lost a parent.
