my mum died 20 months ago and I've grieved alone for her. I went to cruse and this helped but I feel I'm stuck and I'm not moving on. I've got on with life, kept working, seeing friends, raising the kids etc etc but inside I'm constantly thinking of mum and dad and missing them and wishing I could talk to someone about them, someone else who misses them like I do, but theres no one.

Has anyone else been like this and found a way out of it? Or is it just time that helps?

My mum died suddenly a year ago this week. I understand how you feel. Have you tried your gp, they can refer you to a counsellor? MIND also have fantastic counsellors.
I am trying not to be too hard on myself and to take it one day at a time. It just catches you unawares at the most odd times. I try to remember that this is a normal reaction and it will pass.

the gp just gave me a leaflet.

I think time is the only answer.
