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.

How to grieve without your soul leaving you

My boyfriend was killed march 13,2022 he was killed 16 minutes after I left his house to go to my house to grab clothes for me and him to wash… it’s crazy how life works for some reason something in me didn’t get to make it back to him and something made me go to work that next day get off work and go to his job then his house to look for him for me to hear the sad words that no one in life would ever want to hear.
