I am sorry to read about the loss of your mum and all that you are going
Everyone experiences the loss of a loved one differently, in a way that
is unique to them. You have told us that you have no emotions about anything in
any area of your life and that you feel dead inside which is affecting your
life, have you tried talking about these feelings with your GP? These
professionals are there to oversee all of your physical health needs along with
your mental health needs, so we would suggest a chat with your doctor in the
first instance if you haven’t already done so.
People often tell us that talking about our emotions can help us to
process and understand them. Some people say that it helps when we speak them
aloud. We have information about how you can access support on our website that
you may find useful here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/bereavement-or-grief-counselling . Your GP should
also be able to direct you towards appropriate services too.
On our Support Line we are here to listen if you need someone to talk
to, you can reach us on Freephone 0800 090 2309. You can also message us
privately through this Community Forum by clicking on our name or logo and selecting
‘private message’. Please note that we are only here until 5pm today however I
have put some other Support options below for you in case you want support

- The Bereavement Trust are there to offer support to anyone that has
experienced the loss of a loved one. Their support line is open from 6pm until

It’s important to know that you don’t have to go through bereavement
