I just lost my entire post! Here’s a brief version: although there are many resources for young people who have lost their parents—understandably so—there are few, if practically none for middle-aged people.

My blog discusses the challenges I faced when I lost my Mom right after my 51st birthday. I write about the grief I suffered on top of taking care of a father I had never gotten along with, writing a textbook, and teaching as an adjunct. I also write about my changing relationship with my mother over the years and how I came to love her even more despite our numerous cultural and generational conflicts.
