Struggling …my mum died on the 7th December and my dad on the 18th December… I just want to go to sleep and not wake up

Linda24 I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you have support around you. I lost my Mum on 8th December and I completely know what you mean about not wanting to wake up. But you found the strength to come here and your Mum and Dad would be proud of you for that. Stay as strong as you can. I know it’s difficult.

Linda I’m so sorry… that is truly horrible.

I don’t really know what to say. What can be said that would help… nothing I think. Do you have brothers/sisters or other family to be with?

I felt like that (still do sometimes). my husband died in October. Against my own thoughts I had a phone appt with the GP and got valium/diazepam which did surprisingly help me. Nothing can take it away though… it’s just awful this happened to you and your parents.

Please let us know how you’re doing if you feel like it. Posting and reading here is one of the few things I find does help sometimes.
