I just want to say thank you to all who replied and for the very useful advice. Answers to why I feel guilt with each loss is I had not returned a call a week prior to my best friends death.There were things left unsaid and unknown.Time had passed due to distance and busy lives and I had looked forward to our meeting up when we retired, to have the time to catch up and cover what we had missed and to tell her something that had happened to me and my family, that only she would understand and to share with, now that chance is gone and I’m still carrying it.
For both mum and dad circumstances around their decline and passing, like everyone, there were things not dealt with right and dad died alone in hospital and I didn’t think properly or sensibly around their dying days and hours. I will leave it there as I most likely am not making much sense as there are so many parts of this that are not included and that is where I feel the need to see a therapist to sort all of it out. Once again thank you as I have found just posting my issues and getting the advice from the replies seems to have helped me feel a little less isolated.
