    Hi @Liza211,

    I’m glad you have found this forum during such a raw time in your life. My heart goes out to you. I couldn’t imagine what you are going through right now, but I encourage you to speak about it on here with as much or little detail as you wish. As @debsayge has so lovingly demonstrated, this is a safe space for you to share your experience within a community that can empathise with the pain of grief.

    You mention that you are feeling very lost.

    I’m going to share a self-care guide that may be able to help you through these early days and weeks https://griefline.org.au/resources/east-toolkit/. Hopefully the resource serves as a guide instead of you having to think too much about how and what to do to look after yourself. Tasks like self-care can become overwhelming during this time, so try and take it step by step.

    I’m also going to share another resource that may be able to help ground you in this time, by relaxing your nervous system with some breathing exercises this can reduce the feeling of overwhelm. https://griefline.org.au/resources/mindfulness-for-grief/

    Also we are here on the helplines to listen and walk along side you as you navigate this tough journey
    1300 845 745 or you can book a call on the Griefline website.
