Hello Kaylo & Nicc26,
We’re sorry to read about both of your parental losses and to
hear how you’re both feeling. The loss of a parent can be a complete shock to
the system and it’s natural to wonder how to cope, or how to come to terms with
everything that’s happened. As Nicc26 has already mentioned Kaylo, it can be helpful
during this time to try and focus second by second rather than hour by hour or
day by day.
The important thing when you have lost someone you love is to
let yourself grieve for as long and as much as you feel you need to. There is
no right or wrong way to grieve however getting support during this difficult
time can be a comfort for some. While everyone copes with grief differently,
people often tell us that talking can be helpful. Some people choose to confide
about how they’re feeling with a close family member or friend, whereas others
may prefer to talk to a Support Line such as ourselves. If you feel this would
be beneficial, we’re here to listen on Freephone 0800 090 2309. You can also
talk with us live online through our web chat function if you would prefer,

Nicc26, we're sure that many people will be able to resonate with the words you have shared through here. Thank you so much for taking the time to share with Kaylo your personal experience
of grief and what has helped you so far during this difficult time with losing
your mum. We hope that you both feel comfortable to continue to talk with each
other and others through here as a way of support. We also feature information on our
website about getting support which you may find helpful here: https://bit.ly/2iBeQ0b .
