    My best friend lost her battle in November, she was more like a sister to me than my own sister, we were at school together and were friends for 30 years. I miss her like crazy and wish I could hear what she is saying to me. My mum is 77 and was diagnosed with cancer about a month before my friend died. I am drained My father in law died in August, my sister is also a recovering alcoholic. Some days I just want to sit in the corner and cry but I can’t, I have to support my partner, my brother, my father, my friends husband I have joined this forum to chat as I’m sure many will understand. Sorry to go on.

    Hi Emma

     

    I am sorry to read about everything that is currently happening in your life. Grieving is a very individual process and there is no right or wrong way to do it. It is important to be kind to yourself and to allow yourself sometime to concentrate on you. You may find the following pages on website helpful: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/grieving-your-way.

     

    https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/being-there/support-carers/your-needs has lots of information on taking care of your own needs if you are carer.

     

    Many people tell us that talking about their situation and thoughts can help them to process their feelings, and whilst we are not qualified therapists at the Support Line we are here to provide emotional support and a listening ear. If you would like to talk about things in more detail please call our Free phone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via web chat https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line


    Take Care
