Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and it is my first one EVER without Mom. I have always lived in the same area as my Mom. Even if I could not attend Thanksgiving dinner because I had to work or I was sick, at least I was able to talk to her on the phone and wish her a happy day.

I really miss my Mom today. I do not feel like doing anything other than lay on the couch and watch TV or sleeping. Yes, I took care of my daily responsibilities and I went for my usual 3 mile walk, but my heart wasn't in it.

Then there are the Christmas catalogs I was looking at. I was thinking Mom would have liked this and Mom would liked that. I was thinking, I could get her a present at Christmas to signify that even though she is not physically present, she will always be a part of my life. But the thought only brought me sadness

Crystal, that is the best way to describe it.

a darkness looming over you, in a flash it creeps up on you

we have to pray it stops and the happy memories are left

Bailey I apologize for the spelling

Hi guys, first of all condolences to you Bailey. The next few weeks will be a blur for you. And I am praying that you make it through them..Just remember, talk through it.  Having someone to talk to made it much more bearable for me.

Its funny, I remember the first few weeks after my mom died. All I wanted to do was stay in my room and sleep. Now, I'm able to laugh and smile... the pain isn't constant anymore.  but it creeps on you. Its like my shadow following me... Until a smell reminds you of them, or you find her writing somewhere, then you feel the stabbing pain creep up your body to your chest. Just as strong as it was the day I lost my mom...  I wonder if it will always be like this... Going through happy moments with this darkness looming over you waiting to be let out.

Belly I’m sorry for your loss you have found a great group of people here we are all going through the same thing unfortunately
Comment by Brett Bowman on November 20, 2017 at 11:30pm

Bailey, I was my mom's caretaker for four years. She died on Christmas eve of 2015. I don't think that Christmas can ever be the same. I know it won't. I was thinking today, I remember when Christmas was all about toys. That's hard to believe now. What I wouldn't give just to have Christmas dinner with my mom. I don't need a present. Just an hour with my mom would be heaven.

Thank you Brett for the kind words. You know exacatly how if feels when you think your Mom is going to win the battle and then another issue pops up! My Mom had been living with us off and on the past five years. Sometimes the stay was as long as year another time a couple of months, When she was doing well she went to her own home. She loved her time at home. We were glad we were in the position to do that for her as we are both retired. I am so happy I found this group,

Thank you Bluebell. My avatar is my dog Benji. Thank you for the warm welcome
Comment by BLUEBELL on November 20, 2017 at 1:58pm


First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. My Mom passed away Feb 14th of this year and I too am still deeply grieving her loss. This is a wonderful and supportive place to come and share your feelings about your Mom's death. Anything you are feeling that you feel comfortable sharing is okay. 

Second of all, I like you avatar. It looks like my dog except he is grey. His name is Bailey!!

Has Not Happened

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider.  He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves.  We can either look forward or backward.  Well, it all sounds good until I get home to an empty house, an empty life, no friends I really like, a family who thinks I am doing "better", and a husband who is gone.  All the things…See More
