Being my mom's caretaker was the greatest blessing of my life, but it has some with a cost. I wouldn't trade with my brother's and sister in anyway shape or form. When they remember mom, I'm not sure what they remember. I mean, they have memories, but not like what I have. I could not have gotten more from my relationship with my mom, and I was fortunate enough to be with her until her dying breath, but that doesn't make it any easier. It's not easy for any of us. Far from it.

Indeed Brett, sadness personifies us. 

My five siblings have returned to their more or less 'normal' life with their spouses, children or pets and work, social life. Mum was never a long term responsibility for them. I cannot be angry with my siblings or envy them at all. I am happy for them...at least they do not have to wallow in the grief for this long. How long for me...I don't know. Let nature takes it course.

Yes well said Brett. Just looking this new year eve as yet another day. Hope to see the light at the end of tunnel. 

Hugs to all friends here and thanks for your continuous support. Will love to talk to you guys over phone or skype someday.

Hugs to you, Crystal. I'm right there with you.

SelV, in so many ways your post reminds of something anyone of us would say. The timing is different but we all have similar feelings. I have three cousins who lost their mom just a couple of months ago, but they are so much farther along in their development than I am, and I know that has so much to do with their support system. Many of us just can't replace that unconditional love. I know I can't. I love my dog. She is all that I have.

I have said this before. We are a sad group. I don't mean that we are bad people. I just mean that we are literally sad. We are brokenhearted. Keep taking baby steps. Do what you have to do to make it through another day. Always have hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Pray. This road is leading us somewhere.

Sending hugs to everyone today and tomorrow. Another year without my mom :( Missing her so much.

Well done 2018...you ripped my heart or should I say burnt it?

What an emotional roller coaster ride it had been! It still is and guess it would still be till my last breath. Cos my mother was the only one I had in my life who truly loved and cared about me. She was my everything, my world. And now she is just a memory(tears rolling down my cheeks)!!!

Should I forgive and forget you...2018?

I am not okay...just like everyone here who is yet to move on. If that is possible at all!

Tired. Exhausted. In every aspect.

All the best to everyone for 2019.

Avi, I'm sorry it was a hard day for you. I'm glad that Christmas is over. I hate to say that, but it's true. Too many memories. 

Comment by Avi on December 26, 2018 at 12:03am

Merry Christmas to all here. I cried a lot yesterday as I was alone, tired and was able to remember my mother's pain in her last few days. 

Wishing peace to everyone.

"Till death do us part", a letter to my husband

How do I begin to thank you for the life you have given me. A life that included 4 loving children, 4 beautiful grandchildren and memories that will last forever.We had more then the romantic love we had when we first met almost 40 years ago. That fades with time. Through the ups and downs, fights and reconciliations, laughter and tears we had something more. We had true love, commitment, trust, and most importantly we had friendship. Since 1975 we have been together to celebrate every…See More
