Hi to all those who live in West Devon. I’ve been searching for local bereavement groups near me and just can’t seem to find any. Is there anyone out there who would like to meet up for a coffee and a chat?
I live near Tavistock but am more than happy to travel.
Hi,have you looked into way up.There do meet ups for coffee and days and nights out.Dont know if there have any in your area but if you are willing to travel it is worth it. They helped me a lot in the early days.
Thank you for your reply as it is such early days for you and it must be so hard and brave of you to reach out. It’s been 16 months for me and the first year I was in shock and spent most of it with my son in Spain.
I’m more than happy to meet as I’m only a 40 minutes train journey from you but there is also a WAYUP group in Exeter. This is for widows/widowers over 60 and I know they are meeting tomorrow morning. It’s a new group and this will be their second meeting.
If you are under 60, there is a WAY charity but I don’t know if they meet in Exeter.
Please look after yourself and don’t hesitate to message me. Just remember, don’t expect too much of yourself. I still just take one day at a time even after all these months.
Thank you Julie for your kind message. I’m 57 so fit the criteria for the groups you suggest. I’ll certainly take a look. Please look after yourself too. No matter the stage we are at, the journey we are on is so very hard
