Hello @Charlp ,

I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

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

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.

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

Take care,

Goodness my heart goes out to you. I lost my mum 8 weeks ago at the age of 50 and I’m 32.

Life doesn’t make sense to me anymore, I think what’s the point, but we are still here and must soilder on unfortunately.

My inbox is always open if you need to talk to someone, honestly don’t know what I’d do without this site.
