#6 - Auntie Sue: Grief, Loss & Covid
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
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. I won't be writing a transcript down so if you wish to know my thoughts, you'll have to press play.

I love you, Auntie Sue.
