Three losses within 5 months

Hello, I’m really struggling. I lost my sister at the end of May then a very close friend mid October and my mum 3 weeks ago. I am finding it very hard to cope. My sister’s death was somewhat expected though sudden (she had had anorexia for many years), my friend was diagnosed with a brain tumour and died 10 weeks later and my mum died after a fall down the stairs 3 weeks ago.

I am really struggling to sleep (hence being in this forum at 4am!) and am finding it nearly impossible to switch my brain off. My mum’s funeral isn’t until next Friday which seems such a long way off.

I don’t really know why I’m posting here. I guess to connect with people who may understand as I feel very isolated.

Losing your loved ones so close together is totally heartbreaking for you it’s tough you will get through this you our probably in autopilot mode try to make time for yourself :disappointed_relieved:


Thanks for your reply @Madge1. I will try to. Feel like currently all my energy and focus is going into the funeral organisation but after that hopefully I can focus on myself
