Hi everyone, I still cry, but I do find myself saying mom give me your strength.  

Lia I am very sorry.  Well my mom was all I had she had me at 42, so we were very attached, I called every day and went there all the time.  She was my world, the separation I felt was agonizing, especially because she died so suddenly and unexpectedly.  I had no idea that was going to happen to someone who was not ill.  But not I know it can happen to anyone at anytime.

Hi all. I am doing okay. I miss my Mom everyday, but my thoughts of her are beginning to change. I find myself remembering every day moments with fondness vs sadness. For instance, when the phone rang, I always said to Mom "I will get it". The other day I said the very same words, knowing she was not here to hear it. It brought a smile to my face to say it. The same thing happened when I saw a beautiful butterfly. She always commented on them. Remembering that gave me another pleasant memory vs sadness that she was not here to see it with me. 

I want to share with you a youtube video on my sister's husband whom we lost in April. He was a very special person who came from a working class family. His first job was that of a lumber jack. All that he accomplished in life was by his own hard work. I miss him.

Hi All, 

Hope you all are able to overcome your grief and live a normal life. I am also trying but guilt takes control some time and then it becomes very difficult for me. 

My daughter keeps me motivated as her eyes tell me that "dad, you have to care for me, so please be strong".

Lia, losing your mom is hard enough. When you also lived with her that takes it to a whole different level because you didn't experience the natural separation that other adults do. That's sure what happened to me. I lived with my mom and she was my whole world. The sicker she got she even became like my child. For you, starting over goes to a whole deeper level than most. My brothers and sister were able to go back to their lives. I had to start over. I am still starting over.

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.

New York Times essay I wrote about orphanhood

Hi everyone, I am new to the group, but not to loss. Thanks for adding me.I wanted to share an essay I wrote, "Welcome to the Freak Show: Becoming an Orphan in My 20s", that is in the New York Times today. Even though all of our experiences with grief are unique, I hope it resonates in some way.Best, KelliSee More
