Lost my gran

by Ria

I lost my gran on Saturday, it was sudden, she went for a scan on the wednesday and she had fluid on her heart and lungs, we last saw her on Friday night and we got a phone call on saturday morning telling us to get to the hospital as she has deteriorated and by the time I got there she was gone, she was 75 and wasn't unwell. My gran was the one I talked to, if I needed a cry, she looked out for me, Im really going to miss her,I'm 30 and have a 12 yr old with tourettes, gran was the only one that listened and understood. I think she really died of a broken heart, as my grandad died two years ago.

Thanks for that, I am avoiding people asking me questions about my gran as I feel the tears ready to flow. I had to return to work last friday, the funeral was the thursday and even today it was difficult going to work. On Saturday my husband and son were fighting and I just started crying for no reason and my husband didn't get it, he kept questioning me but it's so hard to explain how im feeling. Hope your getting on okay and I appreciate you responding to my post, thanks a million x

Ria I am sorry for the loss of your gran. You are in grief at the moment. You have also lost your support. You feel all alone now. Please find family or friends to support you so you don't have to travel this road all alone. We also on this grief website will be here for you. You can also go for counselling to help you to cope with things better. YOu are not alone even if it feels this way. I am feeling my grief very badly yesterday and today and I have come down with a virus due to grief. So I am lying down and not doing anything. Do what you need to. Leave the rest. Only cope with what you can do. Take one day at a time. that is all we have and it helps.
