    Hi there @Golden12 I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mum, that must be devastating :( 

    I know that Cruse offer some excellent support for anyone who might be struggling with bereavement, so please have a look if you think it would help. 

    I think it's okay to not know when you'll be ready, life isn't a race after all. I'm quite sure you're determined to continue studying one day, what did you enjoy most?

    Hi, it sounds like you’ve achieved a lot already and I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, it’s never easy to lose a parent no matter what age you are. It sounds like you’ve been through a lot, I hope in time you will be able to move forward as you seem like a fighter.. 

    I didn’t achieve what I wanted to when I was younger,  both my parents had terminal illnesses at the same time, but like you I did my best.

    Hello @golden12 Nice to see you back on the community :) How have you been keeping?

    As a teenager I had started to align my studies with my career goals and wanted to work in the police. It is unfortunate that it didn't work out that way as I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and was really sick.
