There is no hope after losing my daughter aged 31.

I have no idea how to cope with this. I have been trapped in between trying to carry on for the sake of my son and granddaughter and just wanting to be with my daughter, my best friend.
Trying to find help has been impossible and I also found that I darnt say how I really feel (about taking my life) because of the repercussions. I just want to be with her. This life is torture.


Hi @Georgie-UK ,

I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter. It sounds as though things are very tough and you are finding it difficult to express how you really feel to those close to you.

It sounds like you’re looking for support and I’m glad that you’ve been able to talk about how you’re feeling here. We know that a lot of people experience suicidal thoughts when they are grieving. We have a video about it here which you might find helpful:

Sounds like you have been trying to be strong for your son and granddaughter as you are such a caring parent.
Sometimes in tradegy we want to protect our loved ones but we also need support as well. You have had a big big loss and it is totally understandable that you, despite all good intentions need to have some kindness and some support for yourself !

Care for yourself as you do those around you

I lost my 15 year old baby i love him with all my heart. I often want to sleep and not awake to avoid the pain of this burden that we carry. But i feel the need to carry on to prevent more pain to others and also to have the hope that our days will have the light back again. The pleasure and peace, the freedom from the heavy grief we carry daily
Please message me if you want to
Sending love Lynne xxxx
