      Don't mind admitting I spoke to the Samaritans last night. Will call gp tomorrow as I know I have had this companion for a while and I need help. Will also contact local authority regarding the tenancy on the house to see where I stand and will live. Loneliness is the biggest fear long term, just want this virus to go now.

      Great day,  my brother who has been brilliant had a massive row with his wife and come over and now have been told that I can have the tenancy but not the property. I am only entitled to one bedroom not two but plymouth community homes would be duty bound to find somewhere for me if I don't go private.

      That’s brilliant news on the tenancy, now you need to relax a bit more & concentrate on yourself, it’s also good your brother is there with you sharing the responsibility..

      Yeah, won't be homeless. Would love to stay here but it's two bedrooms an only one of me. Hopefully I could ask them for a location on public transport routes as I don't drive and need it for work long term.

      Sounds like you've had a harrowing few months with all your problems surrounding your dad. Reading through the thread all I see is a great son who did everything possible to not only give him some quality of life for the remaining time but made show  he was comfortable in anyway you could.

      Id be well proud of you if you were my son. Looks like you have plenty of mates on here to help you through these terrible times.  God bless him and may he Rest In Peace.


      In true fashion these words mean everything. YNWA with members like you have on here to help you through what is a very difficult time.

      Sorry for your loss mate, dad would be proud of you for being with him at his most difficult days, you were his rock & you should be proud of yourself.. Dads at peace now & he is with mum chatting about how they raised a beautiful lad.

      You have some testing days ahead of you with funeral arrangements, be strong & give Dad the send off he deserves & then start to slowly rebuild yourself mate..

      We are here for you..

      Again, thank you all. So many wonderful memories. Struggling with the notion that I could and should have done more. He was obviously so poorly by the end I feel I should have done more . The pain is just horrific. Just don't know where I go from here. I know He is at peace now. Perhaps it's good that I can't stay here. Keep expecting to hear him. Why does life have to be so sh*t. Never wanted much out of life, just to be happy. I am now alone, my only companion is this black dog that appears to be the only constant in life.

      Brother has been brilliant but dad didn't do a will and has a bit of money in his account.  Brother talking about making himself the administrator, giving money to charity,  no doubt his step kids, feel awful for saying this. I will have to pay for the funeral in the meantime and the cost of moving etc. All the things like bills, direct debits to sort etc. Anxiety through the roof  know it's my fault for not sorting a will and being happy to let dad pay the bills while I paid for day to day stuff and half the council tax etc. Head is spinning

      First of all, very sorry to hear this. I lost mine just over 12 months ago so please do hit me up for any advice. My dad also didn't leave a will but money he had in his bank paid for the funeral so try not to let all these things worry you.

      Really do message me if you need anything in terms of advice or even a chat with someone who's just had to go through what you are now going through. No problem exchanging numbers.

      It's absolutely sh*t what you're going through but keep your head up. It will get better.

      I think it's important to add that, from what you've posted, it's very apparent that you done him proud. Never forget that.

      Thank you. It's just the thought of sorting out his stuff and the hassle of having to move out on top of everything.  Anxiety is through the roof so I am taking it pretty much hour by hour

      When my anxiety went through the roof after my dad passed I got on The CBD oil and wouldnt be without it now. Helped me, massively, with anxiety and sleep.

      Got prescribed sertraline as I haven't great for a while. Took me years to pluck up the courage.  Will see how it goes.
