#6 - Auntie Sue: Grief, Loss & Covid

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

On Friday 20th November 2020, my Auntie Sue died. She died of Covid pneumonia, along with a number of other complications.

This isn't a recording about her life. There is too much to say on about her and that wasn't where my head was when recording this.

I wanted to record some thoughts about my experience of grief, especially through the lens of covid. For many of us, coping with loss is a difficult and long-winded process, but I've certainly found that there are specific challenges, difficulties and hardships this virus has created.

Don't feel obliged to listen to this. Grief can be a specifically triggering topic to discuss, and if you're not currently in the right headspace to hear this, that is absolutely fine.

All I wish to say (I imagine, I haven't listened back to it) is in the recording. If you wish to hear those thoughts, you'll have to press play.

If you wish to get in touch, you can email me:

I love you, Auntie Sue.
