Hi Mark,

You will feel a wave of conflicting emotions for a long time. Don't make any important decisions for a long time.

My mum was very poorly before she died, spent the last year in a nursing home. I miss her every day, but couldn't wish her to have lived another day in so much pain.

Your caring years will have changed you, so once the formalities are over, take some time to rediscover the "new" you.

Sorry to read of your loss Mark. I hope in the days and weeks ahead you can take some comfort from knowing you gave the best possible care to your father . There is a lot of advice available on dealing with the days that follow a bereavement on here if you need them.

Sad to read of your loss Mark. Keep in touch, if you feel you can and take care of yourself.
