Talking to other people

I’ve been on this site for less than a week. I’ve felt a little better and more open already. Early days yet and a long way to go for me. But can honestly say I didn’t think this would help. but I’ve talked to so many lovely people on here and it’s making me feel less stressed out and supported. Feel more open to talk about my dad dying. Its only been 3 years since I lost my dad. But this year has hit me hard and ive struggled. Reading other people’s situations is making me want to try help them aswell. I should have joined this site after my dad died 3 years ago. Just didn’t have the bottle to join. Just want to say thanks for everybody’s support already. x


I’m Glad it is helping. :heart:

Its good that this community is here as you can come back to it as often as you need. Its great to be able to talk to people who understand what its like losing someone very close to them. I lost my mother six years ago and it doesn’t seem like it has been that long. I think the closer you have been to someone the more profound the grief. Grief really impacts you and you have to let it run its course. The outside world can be cold as a lot of people haven’t experienced deep personal loss and they’re not very empathetic. I just try to get on with things as best I can with the hope that through time the intensity of the grief will level out.


Your more than welcome we’re here for each other lv annie x x x
