Bereaved daughter

Im new to this community but think i might have found what I've so desperately needed- an outlet for my grief.
I lost my mum nearly 5 months ago to stage 4 lung cancer and secondary peritoneal disease. I miss her terribly, so much so that it physically hurts sometimes.
I have 2 small children, and Im trying so hard to be there for them, be present and give them my full attention. When im alone is when it hits me and Im overcome with such intense and sometimes uncontrollable emotion. Im finding this particular time of year very tough. It will be my birthday next week, Xmas coming up and then it would have also been my mum's 75th birthday. All big firsts without her. 
I just miss her so desperately.

Thank you for listening.


  • Hi and welcome to the online community

    I'm really sorry to read about your mum's passing and I'd like to offer my condolences.

    As you know the online community is divided up into different support groups and I can see that you've already posted in the bereaved family and friends group which is a safe and supportive place to discuss emotions and get support from others who have lost a loved one to cancer.
