    1 reply

    Hello. 6 weeks ago my lovely funny Dad passed away. Suddenly over the weekend it hit me out of the blue. I feel like I have fell into a very black hole. Iam normally a very positive up beat kind of person but not now. Never am I off work till now. I tried to get support from the employee program but apparently 6 weeks is too early for their free councilling.

    Hi HelenH,

    I am sorry to read about the recent death of you Dad, and of how you feel that you have fallen into a very black hole over the weekend.  Firstly I want to reassure you that your feelings are very normal, many people tell us that they cope with their grief in the early stages as you are busy planning things like the funeral. It is often after this that grief washes over us and many people tell us it can feel overwhelming. Hopefully the forum will give you a space to share your feelings and thoughts and others will share their personal experiences with you.

    Whilst we are not qualified therapists on the Support Line we can provide you with a safe space to talk and emotional support. You can contact us on Freephone 0800 090 2309 if you feel this would help.

    Take care.
