Hello Olive. This may sound very strange but welcome to our club that none of us ever wanted to be a part of. The loss of my Mom has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. The good thing about this site is that all of us truly do understand your feelings, your fear, your loneliness and even anger. We all go through it in different stages. I am very sorry you are now a part of this unfortunate club but I am glad you are here. You will find peace and comfort and help through the words of others who are right where you are or from those who have had a little more time to understand and make sense of how to live without our Moms.

Comment by Olive yesterday

Thank you, Theresa.  I am so sorry for your loss, too.  I never knew how incredibly painful and lonely this would feel.  The world is not the same without my dear, sweet mom. I don't know how I'm going to make it without her.  Thank you for reaching out to me.  Hugs.

Olive I am sorry for your loss

You will survive, I am, and my mom was all I had

I myself take one day at a time

It has been one year and almost one month, I still cry

I found that being on this site knowing that I am not alone has been helpful.

Comment by Olive on Wednesday

Hi all.  I'm new here.  I lost my dear, sweet mom on December 23.  I have never felt so lonely or sad.  She was my rock and my best friend. I don't know how I'm going to survive this.  I'm 45, so you would think I could handle this, but I am just not functioning.  I miss her terribly.  

Comment by Theresa on Monday

Lisa, I feel the same way, my life is so lonely without my mom to call and talk about my life.
I thought after the first year things would seem better, but I have cried more this year, because I know she is not coming back.
Sometimes I say I know she is happy and safe, but I have no one to talk to like her and I used to talk, every day, numerous times, just to say mom, where were you what are you doing.
I'm trying hard to realize this is my new life.

Comment by Lisa Green on Monday

Somehow I have found strength I didn't know I had. I made it through the holidays with being an emotional mess. Much thanks to my siblings for all of us making the effort to be together. My birthday was Jan. 3rd and it was my first without Mom. It was hard. I have a saved voicemail message from Mom singing happy birthday to me a few years ago and I waited until late that night to play it to myself. It made me immediately fall apart for awhile but that's ok. I needed to do that. The one year mark is coming up in Feb. and I both dread it and can't wait for it to come and be gone so most of the "firsts" without Mom will be done. My life is so very different without her and changed in ways I never thought it would be. There will always be an empty feeling, an unsettled feeling that things aren't the way they are supposed to be. I know this will always be with me but I am learning to live with this new normal and I feel guilty for it. I know I shouldn't but I do. I wish you all a comforted day.

I have good and bad days, some what if days, I surely hope things get better.

Comment by Theresa on December 20, 2016 at 6:30am

I made it through the day, thank you Heather.

I guess time will heal, I hope so.

Thinking of you today, Theresa... wishing you strength...I think your mom would be proud of you... Take good care.

today is one year for my mom

instead of being sad I am going to live it like she would and be kind, compassionate and happy, at least I will try to

Ignore

Hi,I see that John the Dragon has replied with anger to a post I submitted. I was already to send something back, and then I realized that I was going to be as childish and immature as he is being. My husband was a psychologist, and he would have told me to ignore this man and his flagrant disregard for the feelings of others. I think I am beginning to see that he NEEDS this attention we are giving him. It makes him feel important. Why else would someone try to inflict his feelings on others?As…See More

Being the Other Woman/Other Man

This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situationSee More
