I cared for my Mum and my family lived with her to help me support her. She deteriorated suddenly in August and ended up in hospital for weeks. I managed to get her home where I cared for her in bed so she could die at home with her family and her dog close by.
It was the hardest thing I have ever done and now 5 months on I am still struggling. I feel my emotions are unpredictable and my relationship with my family has really
changed as I have.
I just feel it is so over whelming some days and still feel so sad, other days I am angry and can be quite defensive. I wish it would stop as I can’t go back and I feel I am not moving forward?


Hello @AnnaHar,

I’m Seaneen, 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,
