Hi @caz59,

Thank you for sharing – it is beautiful that you are supporting and caring for others when you’re grieving yourself. You sound very generous and caring.

I’m sorry to hear about your loss of your Mum and how difficult things have been for you. Losing a parent can be such a profound loss, particularly when they are the last of your birth family. My thoughts are with you.

I am also sorry to hear that you are feeling depressed. If you would like some more support, our helpline is open 8am-8pm Monday to Friday on 1300 845 745, Lifeline’s number is 13 11 14, and BeyondBlue’s number and live webchat are at: Also, feel free to continue sharing here. We would love to hear more from you.

There are also some ideas for coping with grief here, which I’m hoping are helpful to you:

Again, thank you for sharing and for being so supportive.
Take care.
