I just lost a post answering you Bailey. I am so saddened by the upcoming holidays today, that I haven't the energy to retype it.

But I will say that right now, I too want to skip decorating.

Brett ..I can only imagine how hard it must be losing your Mom on Christmas Eve. Totally agree an hour with your Mom would be awesome. I really don’t want to decorate or put up a tree this year for Christmas. Have other members here skipped decorating for the holidays?

Thank you Theresa and Crystal. Crystal you described it so well.
The first two months after Mom passed away I felt like I was in a “fog”. Honestly there are a lot of things I don’t remember from those two months. This past month I find I have good days and not so good days. I guess this is normal ? Hugs

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.

Brett, wouldn't that be the best Christmas gift ever.....

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.

No reason to live

No happiness.  Nothing to look forward to.  Constant pain.  Memories everywhere and longing to be able to make more or even talk about them.  Scared, needing answers, anxious, lost, angry, devastated, guilt ridden.   how could life be so cruel?  It’s just not possible.See More

In black and white

Today I had to respond to several emails and repeatedly write down that my mother is dead. Finding it very hard to keep writing the words, so hard that it took several days of tearful effort to complete the three most pressing responses.  Finally got them done.  I just miss my mother so much.  I hate picking up the phone now because some part of me still expects her voice at the other end of the line. I feel wounded by family and friends who are grieving so differently from me, who are keen to…See More
