    Hi everyone
    I have never done this before. I am desperate . 17 years ago I watched my father pass away from a 11 year battle with cancer. I had no friends to support me. Less than 4 months ago I unexpectedly watched my Mum pass away. It was sudden but not sudden.

    I am struggling at the moment. My friends are too busy or don’t want to know. I have tried to reach out to people but no one has responded. I am not partnered, no kids. People that are in my life are too busy or don’t want to talk about death. I am not even 40 years old.

    I just don’t know what to do. I am seeing a psychologist but due to lockdown, appointments, work, etc I haven’t seen her nearly two months and earliest I can see her is 30th June.

    Hi, I thought I’d check in to see how you are going?

    Hi @bugsy
    Thank you for messaging me. Hope you are going alright. To be honest, not going so well today. Feeling as though I am moving but not moving. The world is moving around me. I am working this weekend, from home, so that’s something at least. Friday’s I have decided I either don’t like or it’s bittersweet – my parents both died on a Friday, my Dad at 4.45pm and my mother at 7.34pm.

    That would make Fridays very difficult. I hope you are being kind to yourself and make time for some pampering.

    Hi @Bugsy
    I did what I could. I am just hating this feeling I have over me. I hope you get to have a good weekend
