I am so sorry for your loss. This can be a time of conflicting feelings. We are here for you. Sharing your feelings with those who have been or are going through something similar does help you not feel not so alone. It has also been my experience that the people on this thread are not here to judge or claim to know all the answers. We share our bad days and good days. We share our pain and mutual loss of our Mothers. Your Mom was so young. If you want to share what happened to her, it is okay. If it is too painful yet, that is okay too.

It was a year ago Feb 14th I lost my Mom. Sometimes I am okay with it and know she is not in any pain anymore. But there are many others times that I just want it back to the way things were when she was here. And when the raw reality hits that it will never be the same, I crumble.

Hannah I’m so sorry for your loss       You found a great group of people here and for the time that I’ve been on here it has helped me so much.

My mother passed away 6 months ago at the age of 56. It took 5 months for us to get her autopsy results back. I just feel lost.

Off subject; even though I loved the way high heels looked, I hated wearing them. I always felt like all my weight was on the balls of my feet...ouch! I have not had on a pair in years.

Crystal I have though about going to a psychic but then after speaking with my brother I changed my mind, my brother kept saying you don't want to go there he called it the "dark side", I have not gotten to have him explain it, but I'm going to call him this week and ask what did you mean?

I practice Hatha yoga and it took me ten years to block out everything around me and be in the moment, after my mom passed yoga and meditation helped me a great deal.

I had to stop practicing because I tore a muscle in my foot wearing high heels at work!!! Go figure, but I can't wait to get back, it eases my mind and gives me a peaceful feeling.

The first few months after her death, i became obsessed with the afterlife. Mediumship specifically. I started researching how I can develop my own skills and contact the spiriworld. Have not started yet. Although I’ve found some good starting info. Anyone else went through this? Apparently meditation is key. Hopefully one day I’ll actually go through with this. Because right now guess I’m too scared to try and see that none of this exists. 

Comment by Crystal K on March 13, 2018 at 3:32am

I often think of death as well. I look forward to the day I am rrunited with my mom. But then I think, am I so sure that we will be reunited? My faith in God was never strong- another thing that disappointed my mom. So what I die and thats it. What if all the stuff everyone has been saying about my mom “being in a better place” isn’t true. My mom was very religious- and even at the end she didnt lose her faith. So I hope that she is in the afterlife somewhere enjoying a conversation with her mom. Cause it kills me to even consider the other possibility. I dream about her often. But I can tell they are just dreams- and not visits. But everynight I pray to whoever is listening to please let me see, hear or feel her. Because knowing that she is alive in some other way would make this more bearable.

I hear you Brett. I am scared too. My Mom was my anchor.


Comment by Brett Bowman on March 12, 2018 at 1:17pm

Theresa, you said it very well. I am afraid of how. I am also afraid of what comes after. It's easier for me to tell you that you are going to heaven than it is to believe it about myself. I have a lot of guilt. Death, and what comes after is something that we cannot control. I have no doubt that my mom is in heaven. I have a perception about God. I believe that he is so loving and forgiving that there is a place for each of us. But that is my faith. I don't know for certain what happens after. I hope and I pray. I try to be a good person. I hope that I am succeeding.

Bluebell, I use to tell people that happiness was a choice, but try telling that to someone who is suffering from clinical depression. For many people, being happy is just not as easy as making a decision. I don't want to fool myself into being happy. I want to truly be happy. It's hard for me now. I'm just scared. I am scared of the future. I walked through life with my mom by my side. Now she's gone. I just don't know if I can succeed on my own.

Comment by BLUEBELL on March 12, 2018 at 12:39pm

All I want to say is that for some unknown reason, I am feeling less depressed. I am grateful.
