    Hi. I'm new to this forum and looked for something like this to maybe try and open up about my mum's passing. I thought I was doing ok, but since returning to work this week I have been highly emotional, just like at the beginning when she first passed. The pain is real and heavy, like I can't breathe. My mum passed away Oct 18, aged 68, and we got told she had 4 weeks and that was so accurate. I was 8 months pregnant with my third child. She lived for her kids and grandchildren. I feel pain for what she has missed and what we are going to continually miss without her in our lives. I'm not sure why these strong feelings have come back now. I just feel a bit lost again. Anyone else been hit like this with grief again 18 months later?

    Hello, thank you for coming through to our forum and sharing your experiences with us and others today. We’re sorry to read about your mum’s passing and the family she left behind. It is understandable that you feel pain for what you mum has missed and may miss in the future. We often hear that grief has no time limit and emotions can feel just as strong no matter how much time has passed.

    We have lots of information about grief and grieving on our website which you can find here - https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/grieving-your-way , we also have a new bereavement support through our support line, this can include up to 6 sessions with a matched bereavement volunteer over the phone, if you think you would benefit from this please contact us on 0800 090 2309 and we can take your details to pass on to the bereavement support.

    It is sometimes helpful to talk about how you are feeling and we can offer that space for you to talk about this. Talking about it on our forum may help not only yourself but others to share their stories.
