My heart goes out to everyone who is going through this. It's early days for me still. My dad's funeral is next Tuesday. I am walking round like a zombie with no sense of reality. Days and nights just seem to merge together and every hour seems to drag on forever. I feel like I am bobbing along out at sea with no purpose. All I cling to is knowing that my dad is at peace xx

I lost my dad on the 15th November. It was a massive shock. I just feel so overwhelmed and alone. I don't see how I am ever going to feel any better about this. He is all I think about and with two young boys of my own to look after (4months & 2.5years) I feel like I can't cope & I'm drowning.

Grief is a bit of a rollercoaster, there are lots of emotions and they dont necessarily work through in an orderly fashion either.  Anger is a normal part of grief. Although we all have an individual journey personal to us, you will always find someone here who has been through similar or the same emotion.  It does help to know you're not alone on this journey, no matter how lonely it feels at times

Be gentle with yourself, it is best to take it one day at a time right now xx

Thank you for welcoming me and and replying. I feel so alone in this world at the moment and just trying to function and deal with my own emotions. I pleaded with them to pull together for dad but they still refused to communicate. I am dreading the funeral and having to face them. Dad and I were so very close, he was my best friend, my protector and my guiding light and I feel so helpless. I feel for everyone on here who has experienced this life changing loss and I want to move out of this anger I feel so I can grieve for my dad, I welcome any advice of what I can expect during the grieving stage as I am so scared of what I am going through xx

Sending a welcome hug  :hug:
So sorry to hear about what has been happening :-( it's hard enough losing our loved one without that aswell.  Unfortunately grief and the heightened emotions can make people act in various ways and is often a time families fall apart.  I know my relationship with my wider family certainly changed, I was surprised as I had thought we were a close knit family

I hope you find it helpful here in the forum. Everyone here understands, and have all lost loved ones, making it a safe place to talk. I found it so helpful to talk to others who understood how it felt
If you find it too quiet here we also have a Facebook group. You are very welcome in both  :hearts: xx

Im in a very desperate and dark place i found my fiancť dead 10 days ago he was 42 Iím 36, we miscarried twice this year but otherwise are childless.We have to wait for coroners report. Iíve never posted in any forum before but Iím at a loss, Iím lucky to have friends who are trying to help and I see the doctor and a counsellor but itís endless pain. My dad is severely unwell so all thatís keeping me going is holding on for my mum
Because it would devastate her. Iíve tried cruse and the Samaritans too but unfortunately I didnít get a good response xxx I donít know what this will do Iím just hoping we can share because I donít know anyone going through this his family obviously who are wonderful but I Feel Iíve lost a future

My name is Lyn and my dad passed away on the 6th December. Dad was my world and I am struggling to cope with all the heartbreak and  devastation. I am on my own with very little support. My surviving mother,  I am estranged from due to how she treated me and my dad. I have a brother who lives in London and who visited my mum and dad about 3 times a year, he came up when my dad was taken ill about 3 weeks ago with his partner and from the day he arrived he
 has refused any communication with me. Refuses to allow me in the family home (he is staying with my mum) and organised my dad's funeral which is next week behind my back witholding all information. I am bewildered that he and my mother have done this to me because my dad would be heartbroken. I was dad's caregiver for over 15 years and we were so close. Any advice would be really appreciated

What a lovely post. Its so sad that the people who pass never see all the wonderful things that happen for them. Thats why i keep telling people now, love your family, enjoy them, stop the arguing, be with each other, as you never know when it will be the last.
