I miss my mom so much. My heart hurts constantly. 

Comment by Lisa Green yesterday

Hello everyone. I haven't commented in quite awhile. I have read several messages and gained strength from them. My mom has been gone nine months today. I don't think it will ever get easier to live without Mon but slowly I'm learning how to navigate life without her constant support and love. It hurts every step of the way though. I cry a lot still. I have found that what helps me most is to surround myself with family as much as I can. I also have to make a little time for myself to just be alone. (I'm not as good with this one.) Sometimes I still have to remind myself that she really isn't here. When I look at her pictures, she was so much larger than life that it feels like she's still here for just a moment. I'll never stop missing her. I know that for sure. 

To everyone who has recently joined us in this horrible journey of losing our mothers, I say to you that you have come to a wonderful place. The people here are so supportive and caring and truly understand how you feel because they too are feeling the same things. May God wrap his arms around us all and carry us until we can walk again.

Good morning blessings to all! I have this great sense of sadness with the onset of fall. It is like dejavu....reliving the time period before i lost my beloved Mother last year. I cant stop the tears...i miss her sooo much. Needing her even more...longing for her love and warmth. I dont know how ive made it thus far. On November 2,it will be a year since i saw my Mothers smile. It was her birthday.I remember every detail of our day together. Wish i could feel the hugs we shared. I still have her untouched cake in the freezer. She died the next day..November 3,2015. It will really be a whole year, the worst of my life, since shes been gone. The pain is always there,,,yet THIS has been the one time that it relives its wrath within my broken heart ever so deeply, as the days are approaching. I dont know what i will do. Cry plenty, yes, but maintaining my grief journey?...seems to be in reverse right now. Oh dear Lord have mercy on our heavy hearts!!!!(crying) Bless all of you!

Hi Theresa,

Thank you for your heartwarming comment on my post. As a newcomer here, I am already starting to find hope in helpful messages like yours. Knowing that someone out there cares gives me hope.  I know that although you are thoroughly strengthened by Him,  it is also inevitable to grieve for your loss in certain times. And these moments are types that suddenly hit you, even in the most unexpected times, like when you see something that reminds you of your mother. Thank you for the positivism. 

 I shall use your experience  as one of my inspirations to begin accepting the reality of this newfound existence, without my parents next to me. 

God bless you.

Comment by Theresa on Sunday

I am coming up on the one year mark which is 12/19, that day changed my life forever.

I tell my mom I miss her everyday and love her.

I also thank God for taking such good care of her and not letting her suffer.

Now I am suffering, but I know she would want me to go on, but my life will never be the same without her here on this earth.

One day at a time....

Samantha, have faith..its the only thing that has gotten me through this.

Comment by Margie S. on Saturday

October the 8th was the first anniversary of my mom's death.  It was a very sad day for me. On her anniversary I cried, looked at her pictures and kissed them, and told her that I miss her and that I love her so much.  I had something like a movie going on in my head, seeing her doing all things she loved to do with me like going to the restaurant, to the doctor, beauty salon, etc.  I think about her every single day of my life.  I told her that I send her kisses and hugs every day with God.  My life is different without her.  I miss and and love her very much.  I know she is with God and that she is happy and that she still takes care of my from Heaven.  Mom, more kissed and hugs from me.  Love you.

Comment by Nancy Dynes on Saturday
Sending gentle hugs and prayers, Samantha. Can you reach out to people who also loved and cared for your mom? Do you have family you can share your feelings with, or maybe a counselor? It's been such a short time since your mom's death. You need as much support as possible during this painful time. In the first months after losing my mom I couldn't think of anything but her and how she suffered. It helped to be able to talk to people I trusted, but so many friends and family are uncomfortable speaking of something so devastating.

My grief and pain of my mom's death is consuming me. It's been a little over a month and i am in such a dark place and see no light.
Comment by Theresa on October 18, 2016 at 3:59pm

Thank you Nancy, the world is a different place without her especially my world.

It is so hard for me because my mom was not suffering God took her unexpectedly.  This is so difficult for me but as time goes on I too realize she is happy and any of her aches and pains are now gone.

I do thank the Lord everyday for not letting me have to watch my mom suffer.....he spared me

Comment by Nancy Dynes on October 18, 2016 at 3:40pm
Today marks 18 months since my sweet mom left for heaven to be with The Lord. I know she's happy and no longer suffering. I continue to miss her every moment of the day. Even during happy times there is a part of me that is constantly grieving and desperately longs for her. The world is so different without her in it.
Satki, Rachel, and Theresa my heart aches for you. Satki, I also gained weight after I lost my mom. I'm just now able to take control of it and shed some of the extra pounds. I feel like I ate my sadness for a long time, in addition to stopping my exercise regime. It's so hard to do normal day to day activities with a broken heart.
Hugs and prayers to everyone here as we travel this painful road together.

Compounded grief with existing anxiety and depression.

During the tragic loss of a loved one or having gone through several tragedies , be it death of a loved one, divorce , personal health issues, or getting older , ect. Sometimes the stress and depression compounded by grief can be debilitating and it may have us feel as if we are mourning our own deaths while we are grieving the loss of our loved ones , We feel as if our own lives are over , Being in this mode can make recovery a longer more confusing process for some. It can be uncomfortable to…See More
