Shock of losing sister

I lost my gorgeous sister Jan11th this year after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer just 5 weeks earlier. I’m in total shock and felt very sad and lost since. I’m currently off sick from work my team leader and manager have both been fantastic. I’ve never been an emotional person but find myself filling up over stupid things like items on the news etc it’s so not me !!! Have good days and bad with no desire to return to work any time soon l


Hello @SAS1905 ,

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 shocked, lost and really not feeling ready to make it back to work. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister. 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.

You might also want to have a read of the following Sue Ryder article when you feel ready.

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,
