The death of a best friend.

I’m finding life really hard right now… my best friend wasn’t just a friend but family a lot of people use this term loosely now but honestly she was my soul sister a bond like no other, my friend was killed this year by a drunk driver racing! This was only a few weeks ago but the thought of never being able to talk to her again is hurting me bad… the situation does not help that I do not really trust many people so I only have two other friends… I find it good to let things of my chest with my partner but I don’t want to burden anyone who doesn’t know what I am going through… I genuinely feel like I have lost a piece of me.

Hello @Beautifulbumblebee,

I can see that you’re new to the community, so I wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your your best friend that brings you here.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that may help right now.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,


Hey @Beautifulbumblebee.
I am so sorry you lost your best friend.
I too lost me best friend, really suddenly she passed last Friday. She wasn’t just my friend she was my family, my chosen sister my anchor. She passed due to a brain hemorrhage. My heart is broken.


Hey there,

Thank you for your response, honestly it has completely taken me by suprise our last good byes to see her were today and her funeral is tommorow :frowning:
Even seeing her in her coffin I couldn’t believe it… I was holding her so tight and expecting her to hold back I still can’t yet believe this is a reality! She was my whole world I just feel like everything is crashing around me at the moment and I can’t seem to find my way out xxxx

Hi @Beautifulbumblebee I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I lost my best friend 4 years ago very suddenly to cancer. It was in the middle of a Covid lockdown so I was unable to see her when she became ill. I still miss her every day. Like you, I don’t have many close friends so feel the loss greatly. It is so nice to communicate with others who have an idea of how it feels. X
