Apologies, I’m not sure that this is appropriate for the mental health thread, but grief is a real cock isn’t it? I lost my dad very unexpectedly just over a year ago. Two weeks after his 60th birthday he was diagnosed with cancer, he was dead a week later. He was the fittest man I have ever known (he qualified to represent Team GB in the World Triathlon Championships 2016 as a veteran).
I go through a good few weeks where I think that I’ve got my head around it, but then out of nowhere it hits me like a tonne of bricks, and I struggle to grasp the magnitude of losing him (this weekend just gone being an example).
Anyone got any pointers for how best to deal with it?
