The life I've always dreaded

All my life I’ve thought about how awful it would be without my mum, now it has happened, the life I’ve always dreaded is my life now, and it is every bit as bad as I knew it would be. I hate my life without my mum. I also grieve for my dad who I lost many years ago and that feels so raw now again. I miss them both so much, I miss their love so much.


I’m so sorry. :heart: I too have dreaded it all my life. Now that I’ve lost them, my dad most recently, it’s actually worse than I thought it would be. How do we adjust to a life we hate? I’m not sure yet, but I wanted to let you know I understand and emphasise.



I’m so sorry. I lost my mum in March this year, and I can’t tell you it gets any easier because it doesn’t, but you learn to live with it I guess. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with, but you’re not alone.
