Theresa, very little. I just feel as though I have no value anymore. None. People can tell me that I have value but it doesn't matter unless I believe it myself.

Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I think of is, "Oh,yeah. Mom is dead." And then my heart sinks. I rarely talk about it anymore with my friends because I know they are tired of hearing it. Even my minister.

The intense pain may not be as bad, but the void is still there. It's like a scar that never starts to heal. I do not look forward to Christmas, and that's horrible. What a thing to dread. That used to be my favorite time of the year by a long shot. Not anymore.

I lost my dear Mam last month, I am heartbroken and miss her so much.

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.

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
