Omg I just watched the whole of this whilst relaxing in the bath!! This was brilliant and so relatable right now!!
So apart from all the obvious that’s going on right now, I am grieving the loss of a child I thought I would have, I’m grieving the loss of the future I thought he would have and feeling the guilt of knowing I passed this on. I seek comfort in knowing that Hugo is so happy, loved and well looked after and that I am beginning to realise that these feelings are totally normal. My mental health has been suffering since before Hugo’s diagnosis and I finally hit breaking point when we received this. I have my own coping mechanisms and each day is different but I love my children more than anything in the world and they are happy.
I feel a huge sense of comfort when I have them sleep beside me at night.
Thanks so much for this ladies. It’s made me feel good.
This is amazing. So honest and open. You made me laugh which I love and also cry which is a way of feeling completely connected.
So natural and relaxed. Well done beautiful ladies xxx
Thank you Melissa Casaclang for your lovely words. We really wanted the podcast to be relatable and so that makes me really happy that you thought we achieved that. The purpose was to be honest and open and as a family given what we have been through, have learnt that we need to be open and talk to each other about how we are feeling. Every emotion is valid and we need to acknowledge them instead of suppressing them. We all have mental health and like you we all need to find the right tools to help us find balance in our life, as the world is a difficult place to live in right now. Bless you Melissa. ❤️❤️ Jenny ❤️❤️
Our mens group is via Zoom rather than face to face at present. Still starts at 7pm but on a Monday evening. Great bunch of blokes just trying to support each other through these crazy times. We have room for more fellas so let me know if you want some information about what we do. I promise you it's not complicated! @Stuart Rayner ... See MoreSee Less
