Hi I recently lost my dad and I’m really struggling. I’m his only child and he wasn’t married so I had to deal with it all. I have been busy sorting things and now the funeral is done I feel like I’ve lost him all over again. It has always been me and him since I was 2. I’m finding it hard to be a mum and wife when I just lost one of the most important person in my life x


Hello @Amypiller,

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 dad. 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,
