1. Introduction/Our Story
This might seem like a repeated broken record. But literally since the day, our Dad was hospitalised on the 5th September 2016, up until this very date. Life and its meaning have been questionable.
It literally feels as though we have not had control of our life ever since. We are somehow getting by day to day, but it is a struggle, and a very difficult one.
On hard days it feels like we would like someone or something to take our hand and give us guidance for what is ahead.
We’ve had to make endless amounts of huge overwhelming life-changing and drastic decisions. This really takes a toll. Physically and mentally it is extremely draining.
It is scary unsettling, worrying. Everything feels uncertain. Add to that the current worldwide pandemic and we feel like we are in the middle of a whirlwind trying our best to survive and keep our head about water.

3. Our final thoughts/YouTube video
When thinking of how to summarise this topic, we came across the following quote that we felt ended it in the right way. We hope this topic might be of use to someone and we’d like to wish anyone reading it a safe day, evening night, and remainder of the week.
“Grief is a process. Grief is a path an individual navigates at their own pace. But always keep in mind that grief is not a disorder that an individual needs to be cured of. Mourning the loss of a loved one provides healing and, in time, a pathway to peace”
