    I’m not sure how to continue going on like this.
    In Dec 22, my 82 year old mother died after trying to fight off her second round of breast cancer. She fought so hard. When she died it was like my umbilical cord was severed all over again.
    Then Feb 13th 2o23 we had to let our precious Bindi go. She had heart failure. She was my soulmate, I loved her immensely.
    Then Feb 25th 2023 we lost our 82 year old father. He too succumbed to a second bout of cancer.I thought that this would be the end of our devastation.
    But no, on 31st Dec 23 our brother was taken from us in a horrific rail accident. We have had our hearts completely torn out. The utter devastation we feel is overwhelming. His funeral is on Wed and I’m not sure how we’ll get through it. We couldn’t have a viewing to say goodbye ss he wasn’t deemed suitable. My heart just breaks.

    Hi @wendywitchiepoo, yes such compounding and tragic losses can feel overwhelming and difficult to process. It can help to just focus on one day (or even one hour) at a time and revert to the basics of “EAST” Please reach out for support during this devastating time. Outside of Griefline hours you can ring LifeLine on 13 11 14.
