Hello Torie.

I’m so sorry to hear about the lose of your best friend. It sounds as though things are very tough at the moment and you are feeling overwhelmed.

I’m glad that you’ve been able to share how you are feeling here, and I hope that you find the community a good source of support. Everyone here has experienced the loss of a loved one and will understand some of what you are going through.

Sue Ryder offers an online bereavement counselling service. This is a free service and sessions are held via video chat so you can attend from home. There’s more information about this service here:

Another good place to get support is Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide - 0300 111 506.

Please continue to post, Torie, our lovely members will respond to you very shortly.

Take care,
