    Thank you for sharing more about how things are for you at the moment Sarah18. I’m sorry to hear that everything happened so quickly after your mum was told that her cancer had returned. It’s understandable that you are not talking with your friend about your Mum when you are concerned about how emotional it may make her. Dealing with hostility within the family in addition to grieving can be tough at an already emotional time. It is completely normal to feel low on some days and be managing a bit better on others.

     

    Not everyone feels that they need to talk to their GP but if you do at any point, they can offer support in other forms such as suggest counselling options and bereavement support groups in your local area.

     

    I’m pleased that you are seeing the community as somewhere that you can begin to share how you are feeling.

     

    Take care

    I’m going to book an appointment next week with my doctor. I knew it would be hard losing my mum but didn’t think it would be this hard. As I’ve had no contact with my dad since I was 12 I feel like I have no parents left and due to the hostility from my brother and sister it makes things harder to cope with the loss of my mum.

    Hello Sarah18,

     

    Thank you for sharing how you are feeling with myself and others here on the community. Grief can be unpredictable in how it will affect us and it is understandable you are finding it hard at the moment. It’s a positive step that you say you are going to book an appointment with your doctor next week. If you would like any support before or after the appointment, you can call the Support Line on Freephone 0800 090 2309 or continue to post here on the community.

     

    Take Care,

     

    Bonnie
