Amy Huberman has opened up about how she’s navigating life after her beloved Dad.
Her father, Harold, passed away this year after a battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Since his passing Amy and her family have been learning how to live life without him, with Amy admitting that it can be difficult.
Chatting with The Sunday Mirror she explained:
“I’m just rolling with it. There are no rules, I’m just trying to muddle through it”
“I would see him so much as he was only up the road from me. I’m so grateful for the time we did have as we got to spend a lot together.”
A busy summer for Amy as she was in the US for an exciting project and also spending some time abroad with her family. She said that for a time she felt as though she were ‘running away’ from her grief. Confiding in a friend about her feelings, her friend assured her she was not running away but rather taking it with her instead.
“We went away so much this summer. I said to a friend, I’m just running away. She said ‘you’re not running away from it, you’re just running with it’”
Hopeful that things will become more bearable with time, Amy added:
“It’s very true, you have to run with it. People who have been through it, they say it gets easier and others say it never goes away.
“I’m sure it gets easier, the initial shock is so bad, the longer you haven’t seen them. It’s such a weird one, but there are lovely moments when you can hear them.”
Amy has just released a new children’s book ‘The Day I Got Trapped In My Brain‘ a charming story of a young girl who adventures from the safety of her own mind.
