Hi all.

I am really struggling this year i am feeling quite low and im not looking forward to Christmas. I usually love Christmas but i just keep thinking about my son he was stillborn in 2009. I put on a smile infront of people but deep down i feel like rubbish :frowning:

Hello @Sammi,

I’m so sorry for the loss of your son - that is devastating. It’s completely understandable that you’d be finding Christmas so tough.

The community is here for you, but if you think some extra support might be helpful, Sands is a charity that supports people who have experienced the death of their baby. They have a helpline, live chat and local support groups. Their helpline is free to call on 0808 164 3332.

Take good care and keep reaching out,


Thank you for the advice. I will have to contact them.

I feel exactly the same way my love. I feel like at this time of year my life is a performance, and I’m just managing the best that I can but I’m irritating the people I love them most because I’m hurting, I hurt them with my words
