Thank you everyone. My mom had refused to see doctors for seven years; she feel ill, finally went, was diagnosed with Stage IV metastasized cancer in her throat, lung, and liver, went directly to hospice, and died less than 4 weeks from the initial doctor visit.

My daughter and I lived with her for the past eight years.  I am devastated.

Hi Lia, 

So sorry for your loss. 

Similar to others, I can understand your pain. I wish comfort to you but I know it is not easy. Please take your time. 

All people, I was travelling so could not post for long. This is to tell that I visited by dream location Prague on 15 Sep but could not enjoy much. I feel like not enjoying at all and everything just happens. 

Also, finally I got the promotion guys.

Lia, I am so sorry. It's been almost three years for me and my heart is still broken. We understand. Please feel free to share with us. We will help you all we can. In some ways I wish that I had found this board so soon after my mom's death. It's just good to know that there are people who understand what this feels like. You are still in shock right now and I'm sure the feelings are raw and intense. I will walk with you, buddy. God Bless You.

Lia I am so sorry, can you tell us your story?
Comment by Lia Lynch on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm

I just lost my mom two days ago. My heart is broken.

Comment by Brett Bowman on September 5, 2018 at 9:44am

Douglass, I'm sorry. Grief is agonizing enough without having life kick you in the teeth. We went from having so much unconditional love to seeing the worst in people.

Comment by Theresa on September 5, 2018 at 5:55am

Avi I am so sorry about the promo, something else will come up.

That just wasn't meant to be, that is how I look at something that did not work out for me.

Yep still missing mom, and having my friends mom pass on Friday, was no help either, I am dreading going to the funeral, I do not go to funerals, a small mass is sufficient is my belief, the soul has left the body and its just a body in a box and more drawn out agony for the family, just my own belief.

My friends mom had dementia, she stopped eating, I said to my friend at least you were there with her and you got to say whatever it was that you wanted to say.  

I did not....

Comment by Douglas on September 5, 2018 at 1:45am

I am so sorry everyone.

You know, it is amazing what can bring on memories and therefore grief. I see places DAILY where my Mom and Dad went and near where WE lived and I STILL would be living if my siblings hadn't overruled me and sold the house that I loved SO much! I know I could not afford it, but we could have worked SOMETHING out! That's a whole other story.

But I am an extremely sentimental person and I remember dates, times, locations and everything. I am glad to be here because there are a lot of happy memories. Yet, I feel so lonely here! Only one aunt living here. It is me and my beautiful  female Black Labrador Retriever, who my Mom loved SO much and I do too! I am also facing serious financial issues, which is causing more depression. Most days I do not want to get out of bed. I am tired of all this! Yet, I thank God for my dog and all I have!

Comment by Brett Bowman on September 4, 2018 at 10:59pm

I sure miss my mom, too. It's so easy to close my eyes and imagine that this has all been a dream, that my mom is fine, but that's not reality. 

Avi, I'm sorry that you missed out on a promotion. I know that would have been a positive step forward. I can only imagine how hard it is for your dad.

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
