Lisa Curry says ‘mornings have been the worst’ following the tragic death of her daughter

Grieving Lisa Curry says ‘sleeping at night has been difficult’ following the tragic death of her daughter Jaimi aged 33

Lisa Curry shared a gut-wrenching social media post about ‘difficult days’, six weeks after the tragic death of her eldest daughter, Jaimi, aged 33.

On Thursday, the Olympian, 58, shared a video to Instagram of herself training her dog Mali and said she’s been ‘trying to stay busy’.

If I can’t coach humans yet, I’ll coach our puppy. Permits for our MALI Adventure Retreat are not too far away. I’m looking forward to trying to get my mojo back if it’s possible,’ she wrote.

‘Some days are ok and some are not. Mornings are the worst for me. Trying to sleep at night is difficult… there are so many things in my head,’ she continued.

‘Staying busy I know is sometimes just a bandaid but for now it’s good. Mali loves her training sessions and will do anything for her treats. And of course my beautiful hubby has been so loving and supportive,’ she said.

In the video, Lisa is holding a hula hoop while her dog jumps from one side to the other.

It comes after Jaimi Kenny died on September 14 at Sunshine Coast University Hospital, after a long battle with alcoholism and an eating disorder. She was 33.

Earlier this month, Lisa revealed some of the warning signs she noticed in her daughter’s behaviour prior to her death.

In posts shared to the ‘Happy Hormones’ Facebook group, Lisa explained that Jaimi had struggled with her health for years after being diagnosed with a ‘chemical imbalance’ aged 15.

‘Sometimes, an individual, even adults like us, can disregard little red flags, thinking it doesn’t matter or won’t matter,’ the grieving mother wrote.

‘I know people want to know why and how [Jaimi died], but it’s not important at this time, or maybe ever, I don’t know.’

‘What I will say though is that Jeff diagnosed her with a chemical imbalance 18 years ago when we started to see some tiny red flags,’ she added, referring to Jeff Butterworth, a naturopath who specialises in hormonal disorders.

The former competitive swimmer begged other parents in the Facebook group not to ignore the warning signs like she had with Jaimi.

These ‘red flags’ included making bad food choices, being inactive, handling stressful situations poorly and spending time with ‘toxic people’.

‘Don’t wait until it’s too late to make changes… do it now while you can… starting right now,’ she wrote.

‘Recognise the little red flags. Don’t live your life in turmoil, regret or guilt.’
