Your Mom was a very special person to show such empathy and caring for those that took care of her. In all my years of being a nurse, I have never heard of any one doing something so caring.

I have been very focused on work and have not checked in lately. But you all have been in my prayers every day. 

Warm, comforting hugs to all,

Blue

Hello everyone. Today was bittersweet. I went to visit a dear friend at the hospital where my mother passed almost five years ago(Feb 8th). My mother wrote a short 2 page note of thanks and love to all of the doctors and nurses and staff at the hospital about 36 hours before she passed away while there. It has taken me 5 short years to share that note and I let them scan it to post for everyone that works there to see. It made me feel great love for them all too. I only showed it to a couple of nurses that looked stressed and sad. It really lifted their spirits and made me and them feel happy even with all of the sadness all around us. I miss my mother everyday. Part of me died with her but I am determined to keep going as best that I can. She would want that. Depression has been following me for so long..

Very Well said Theresa Crystal and Betty its been 11 months for me and I still cry a lot and I have not been able to go into my mom house or even look at pictures with out feeling the overwhelming pain. As Theresa said the pain in everyday life did get softer at times I also found this wonderful group who has helped me and allowed me to open up and understand my pain. I hope everyone is doing okay as I haven't heard much from anyone just know you guys are in my thoughts!

Hi Crystal
You are still in the beginning of the grief, you have to let you body feel what it needs to, I saved voice mails from my mom and I cannot even listen to them and its been two years.
I will tell you as time has gone on the pain gets softer, it does not go away, it gets softer slightly.

Betty I too am in the same boat its been two years and I cry a lot.
I go over things in my head constantly.
Its so hard to keep living our lives.

Hi Betty, its been six months since my mom died and The pain is still as horrible as it was the day I lost my mom. Its gotten to the point where I try not to even think about her because I know once I do, the tears and the pain start flushing back. How horrible is that? That I cannot even think about my own mother because of my grief.  So i push my pain, regret, and guilt deep down so I can semi-live in this  in this world. I do hope that one day we will be able to think about the  happy times and not the loss.

Does the pain ever go away.  Its been two years.  I still cry almost every nite.  Her doctor called me a murderer when I gave him her DNR.  I will always wonder would she still be with me?  On her anniversary of death I got the news my boyfriend has cancer.  I do not know how much more I can take.

Its been quiet here and no word from Brett, I just wanted to say hi to everyone, I have been home in bed for two days with some virus/flu/bronchitis, horrible, this is the first one that I didn't have my mom here to coach me through, I look at her picture and say mom I hope you are here with me now.
