My mum passed from Covid and I am haunted by it – it is affecting my life

DEAR DEIDRE: AT the end of last year I lost Mum to coronavirus and now I’m having horrible nightmares about her.

She was a nurse, just 49, and caught the virus at work.

At first she seemed OK but when she started struggling with her breathing, I had an awful feeling. Eleven days later, she was gone.

Now, every time I close my eyes, I see her lying in a hospital bed. She is lifeless and all I can hear is the machines beeping.

I wake up dripping in sweat and struggle to get back to sleep afterwards.

I haven’t had a proper night’s sleep since and it’s beginning to affect my work. I’m a teacher and 26.

DEIDRE SAYS: Losing a loved one is one of life’s awful experiences – and it is especially difficult that she was so young. Try to talk about your mum, remember her achievements and perhaps find a special way to commemorate her life.

Know this will pass and you will learn how to live with your loss in time.

Reach out to Cruse Bereavement Care (, 0808 808 1677). Talking it through might help.
