Hi Ruth 123,
I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your mum and how you are feeling. The death of someone close is one of the hardest things anyone has to face and can bring with it many powerful emotions. It is not unusual to find this overwhelming. There is no right or wrong way to grieve but acknowledging when you are struggling can be the first step to accessing support.
Many people tell us that they find it helpful to talk to someone outside of their family and friends. Some people find going to a group where they can talk to other bereaved people suits them, others prefer to talk one to one. We are here on the Support Line to offer a listening ear. You can reach us by calling Freephone 0800090 2309 or we are available on webchat, https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line You may also wish to look at the support offered by Cruse Bereavement Care – http://www.cruse.org.uk .
If you would like to talk then we are here.
