Another weekend begins. My heart hurts so much I can't stand it. I miss her so much.......will it ever get better????

Comment by Danny 12 hours ago

I miss every day.  It is just so hard.  Physical symptoms have subsided but for me I am only waking up now.

Comment by Jeff R on Wednesday

It's been about a year and a half since my Mom passed.  Not sure where the time went; it's just scary.  While the open wound of loss has subsided some, it doesn't go away completely.  I still miss my Mom every day. It sucks.  But, you do pick up and live your life as best you can.  Moms wouldn't want us to give up, I am certain.

Comment by tigertoo on Tuesday

Terrible, awful, horrible day! How do people go on???? I can't do it anymore! But I will because my Mama would want me to.

Comment by Danny on Sunday

Same here.  The whole point of doing anything is just not making sense except that doing it for oneself is also doing it for the parents as thats what they wanted us to continue doing.  Very tough to focus tiger.  I would say if we go through the motions for now it is not a bad thing to achieve.

Comment by tigertoo on Sunday

I just sat here all weekend wondering what's the point in doing anything. I have no focus now. Just going through the motions of living.

Comment by Danny on Sunday

It's so hard to even work-the whole purpose is so unclear now.  Tan's suggestions and her approach are good.

Comment by Tans on Sunday

Casey, what you are doing with the memoirs - is a good thing. I have gonna back to therapy and that is the first thing she asked me to do. she said that it would be difficult and that there would be a lot of tears but I would be writing about my best friend and how I saw her in my eyes. It's for no one else really but for you. I think that it's a brave step that you are doing. My mom has passed nearly four years and it gets a little easier sometimes, but there are days when the only thing that would make life good is mom, and those are the hardest. People don't know how to react to a person who has lost a parent - it's only when they go through it do they realise the enormity of the loss. People think that it's something we just get over and it's not especially depending on your relationship with your mom. Yes there are days where we don't want to get up and wish the world would just stop - just know that mom wouldn't want to see you like that and slowly get up and do something small, if you work try and focus on that while you are there - yes easier said than done - but baby steps guys. Hugs to all.

Ya, a part of us is gone in a sense.  Yes what Casey mentioned about an adult child is very true and many of us feel orphaned at midlife or as a young adult like at 30.  That is what it is, they don't think it is as sad.  Yes losing a child is (perhaps) more devastating in their eyes but for us our anchor is the parent and many of us live well only with that anchor.  So its a devastating thing for us which few seem to support for a long time.

I never considered HIS grief

I have been so blessed and fortunate that my love has visited me on several occasions since that day he left. In dreams and sometimes what seems like a real visitations. Mostly when I am at my lowest. I could never go to sleep until he climbed into bed with me and put his arms around me. On 6 occasions now I have experienced that when I am crying and inconsolable, when I settle down to sleep I become aware of him climbing into bed next to me and putting his arms around me like he always did: I…See More

Every day I struggle to live in a world without you...this loss of you has been the single most crushing blow I have ever endured. I find now I am not searching for answers or why...answers are a poor substitute for a daughter. My physical presence craves a hug...your voice...your smile. The world around me carries on, but the emptiness of a world without you, with all it's attendant sorrows and unanswered questions, engulfs the life I once knew. EVERYTHING...changes...I feel completely…See More
