Hi everyone

I just made it through the 8th month since my mom passed, I miss her so much.

Very difficult year for me, and December with be even harder, lost both mom and and dad in December. 

So I continue to live my life, it is just not the same without her to talk to ten times a day.....I pray to God for strength and cry everyday.

I dreamed of my mom as a sad lonely spirit creating holes in my walls and water swelling in my ceiling. I was terrified. I hope it was only my subconscious and her telling me how sad and lonely she is.

My mom visited my dreams last night. She gave me a big hug and told me how much I love her. I held on to her as long as I could. She was wearing an outfit she wore frequently when she was alive. I didn't ask her how heaven is, because both times I've asked her she's disappeared. I hardly ever see her in my dreams. I would dream of her hugs every night if I could. It's been 16 months and I still miss her so much!

Thank you - it really is helpful knowing I am not alone and that there are people who truly understand what I am going through. I also ask "where are you?"...often. The only thing that seems to be bringing me any peace at this point is that she is leaving me pennies. She is also leaving them for the people who have really come through for me at this time (my fiance and a couple of very close friends). I have found around 10 at this point. my daughter found one lone penny in the (tall) grass in our backyard and she was delighted because she also believes they are from her. Another story that brought a smile and some tears... my dear friend from work lost her Mom who she was also very close with 13 years ago. We talk all the time about our experiences and she's mentioned, in sadness, that in 13 years she has never gotten any "sign" or seen her in her dreams. My mom (she is convinced too) has been leaving her pennies as well. She had surgery yesterday (all is well thankfully) and she texted me after that while she was "out" her mother and my mother sat beside her and held her through the process. The room was VERY bright. She woke up feeling so peaceful and convinced that they are together and looking after us. There was also a rainbow directly over our house a couple of weeks ago and I was lucky enough to have one dream where we hugged and she was smiling. She looked SO happy (there were no words said and it was a really quick dream). I am desperately trying to look at these things as positives to keep me going day to day without going insane. The hole is just so enormous and some days it feels like just too much to handle. I know it would make my Mom so sad to see me this way. I was her everything (as was my brother (thought their bond wasn't as strong) and my daughter). I want so much to feel some happiness again. Hopefully someday.. 

Hugs to all of you who are going through this or the like. I wouldn't wish this on anyone, ever.

Wow Caroline

I don't have any dreams of my mom.

I wish I did....

Comment by Caroline Guy on August 16, 2016 at 6:40am
My worst dreams are when I dream my mm has passed. I wake up and for the first few seconds I tell myself thank goodness it was only a dream, then I realize it wasn't a dream, my mom really did pass. I dream of my mother a lot. It's awful. I have always been a vvid dreamer, but this is like nightly torture
Comment by Theresa on August 16, 2016 at 4:48am

I wake up at night and say mom where are you? I miss you, but I know where you are.

Its very hard, I just keep thinking, I am going to miss her forever, I hope she knows that.

Yoga has helped me, I notice if I only practice Monday through Friday and not on the weekend, I fall apart more.

Lindsay, I am so sorry for your loss. I am so glad that you are reaching out to us and also seeing a therapist to help get you through this difficult time. Grief is not an easy road to travel and one that should not be travelled alone.
When I lost my Mom who was also 68 I ended up in hospital for 3 days. Almost a year later I still see a therapist, take medication and navigate life day by day.
Please take comfort n knowing you are not alone in your journey

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More
