Bluebell, you are in my thoughts today...

Sadly, there is no one in the family that I can talk to. At first it was that I was living in my mom's house. I left there to create some kind of harmony. That didn't work. They are happy alright. They have money coming. But there is somethings else. My mom and I were extremely close, and that just increased ten fold when I became her caretaker. 

If there is a bright side in this (there's not), sometimes I wonder if it's me. If I am the one who is wrong, but my extended family are backing me completely. Mom's sisters spoke with her every day until she died. It means the world to me that they are supporting me in this. That someone understands how much I loved my mom, and what it meant for me to be her caretaker. 

The sad reality is that my mom is gone and not coming back. If ever I wished that I could hug her it would be now. I'll go through this alone.

I will never forget, a couple of days after my mom died, one of my brothers called me. He said, "What do we get?" He then asked me what the biggest tv in the house was. And then he asked me which tv was the newest. He said, "I'm going to come up there and get one of them." My mom was reduced to a flat screen tv. Now she is reduced to the market value of a home. I don't understand. I will never understand. 

One day the Lord will come for us, I believe that, but until then there is a lot of cruelty and sadness that is attached to being here. I'm broken.

I still have one of mom's little dogs. Her life has changed son much. She use to have me, mom, and her sister. Now she spends too much time in her kennel while I am at work. She's older an incontinent. I just keep looking at her and saying, "I'm so sorry." I know what her life was like, and I know what mine was like. I just miss my mom.

I am so sorry you are going through this with your family. Is there at least one of them that is not bitter and is more enlightened than the others that you could talk to? I think it would have to be agreed to in advance that during the conversation, neither of you would be allowed to become defensive or argumentative.  Just a thought.....

Brett I am sorry to hear all this has happened just know that you did took care of her and she knew that sometimes its the little things that matter more. It's hard when family don't see eye to eye I have one brother who stopped speaking to me and my mom many years ago. I tried to get him to see her but he didn't want to talk I told him I'd leave so he could see her but never came. I told her nothing because it broke my heart for her that he didn't care enough any more. When I did tell him the news I told him he's my brother I will always love you but I will never forget how he hurt her more so I get it. I just want you to know your mom loved you and sometimes family isn't all they seem to be. Big Hugs my friend.

Douglas, I think you touched on something that really hit close to home. My mom was a daily part of my life. I can just close my eyes and see her and hear her. It's like I just saw her. It's like I could yell, "Mom", and she would say, "What?" That's what is so frustrating for me. It's like she's there but I know that she isn't. I want her to be there. It's hard for me to reconcile that she is not.

I realize that many others will not understand, but it kills me that my brothers and sister do not. I recently moved out of my mother's house to preserve family peace. There is no peace. I got an e-nail from my sister a few days ago. She told me that she hated our mother. She said that she was a horrible mother. I was more shocked than angry. Now I'm angry. She said that mother never loved her. My mom loved her more than anything. One of the last things my mom did before she died was to transfer a lot of money into my sister's account. There was no reason. She did it just because. About a week before my sister died, my sister came to visit. She fell down our stairs while bringing up some luggage. She went to the emergency room. She wasn't hurt badly. She just needed some stitches. It was late. I could not get my mom to go to sleep until she knew my sister was okay. Mom stayed up until three in the morning waiting for her to get home. She called my sister on her cell phone every few minutes. My mother was dying. She didn't care. She was just worried about he daughter. And my sister hates her now because I am supposedly her favorite. My mom loved us all.

Now that we are selling the house, they are having group e-mails and telephone calls. I am not included in any of it. I don't even get a response when I write to ask them a question. They can come together over selling a house, but they could not come together for my mom when she needed them the most. Now they are all fast friends. These were three people who didn't even speak to each other. Now they are together because of a common enemy. Me.

My mom loved all of us with all of her heart. They have banded together against my mom and me. For all their talk of despising my mom, they don't mind taking her money.

They do not understand that mom and I became so close because I was her caretaker. They will never understand.

Sherri that is very nice and true, it has been two years for my mom, nothing has changed I miss her just the same.
Douglas, I am without both parents also.
And no they do not get it, that's because they have not gone through what we have.
Karma my friend

This all.

Comment by Douglas on February 7, 2018 at 4:21am

Not that I WANT to escape it! But all those years ago it seemed like they would always be there! I just can't believe they are gone! Life is so lonely without them and so completely different to those very happy days when they were here! My memories of those years are SO VIVID!  I remember them all as if it were yesterday. I am SO DEPRESSED! I cry so much and wake up and think about them and can't believe thisall happened. I knew it would someday, but not so soon and not like this!

Please help!

Comment by Douglas on February 7, 2018 at 4:17am

I feel that very few GET it! How can they when she was my BEST FRIEND of my entire life from DAY 1?! There are SO many times when I need to ask my Mom (and my Dad) their advice on day-to-day things that I KNOW they would help me with. Not just that, but them not being here. There is no escaping the love,  parenting, guidance, and everything they gave me. In addition to the memories and past times, which are gone forever. I MISS THEM SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Totally tired of my life and lack of emotions.

My mother had a stroke in October of 2015. She changed over night due to the aphasia and brain damage. She was a new person, half of who she once was. I began grieving my mother in October. I turned of all emotion and detached myself during the caregiving. It was just way too hard for me to deal with her conditions and my father's emotions. My family are gifted with abilities, mine was empathy and third sight. Most may not believe in that stuff, but it is more than real to me due to years of…See More

I'm new here and going through a very hard time.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this site.I lost my grandfather in June of 2017. A few weeks later, my grandmother passed away. My grandmother and I were very close. She was more of a mother to me than a grandmother. It was very hard on me. Only three months after the death of my grandma, on December 18th of 2017, my father passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. I never got to say goodbye. I lost the three most important people in my life within a few short months and I am having a very hard…See More

Lost Without My Mom

My mom died, August 17, 2009 of an apparent heart attack from heart failure. Her doctors never told me how sick she was and so I was blown away and am heart sick and lost without her.

it's been one year

Tomorrow, it'll be one year since Shelby died. No matter how things seem at any given time, the darkness has set in.  i just can't shake it.  i've continued having physical issues going on, and haven't been able to get in to see the doctor, yet--my appointment is for Monday.  i'm tired of trying to keep going.  i still haven't even begun to work on the planning of Shelby's going away party, yet, either.  *sigh  At this point, my hope is that once i can get straightened out, or at least find out…See More
