My mother passed away from complications related to pneumonia 2 1/2 weeks ago. She suffered from lupus and had a history of heart problems and a kidney transplant, but she had been not been seriously sick for years. She went into the hospital feisty as ever and told me to go back to grad school, that she would be home soon. My aunt, who is a nurse, called me the next day and said to go back to the hospital. As soon as I got there I noticed my mom was having difficulty breathing; she was sedated and put on a ventilator within 30 minutes of my arriving. We did not get a chance to talk. She never woke up and died five days later. My parents were married almost 33 years and I am an only child (my mother was too sick to have more). The pain of reality often seems too intense to bear and I find myself crying all the time.

My mother passed away from leukemia, it was sudden and unexpected. I miss her dearly, and for me the hardest part was how everyone acted as if she never existed. To talk about her seemed "morbid" to others. But she will always be my mother! I started a blog called The Modern Mourner to help create new ways to mourn. www.modernmourner.com. If you have any creative ideas about how to remember, please contact me!

I just joined this group, not sure how it all works. I just felt like I needed to find people that have gone through what I have. Its really hard to talk with friends because I'm finding they don't really understand or they get uncomfortable when I express my feelings. My mom died 6 months ago in a sudden car accident along with 3 other family members. The accident happend overseas but I was able to get there while she was still in the hospital. She hung on for 14 days touch and go the whole time. Everything happened so fast and I feel like it didn't really happend. Nothing really makes sense when do things start becoming clearer?

Its been awhile sense i have written anything on here. Its been 6 months 6 days at this point sense my mom passed. I dont feel like i can go on without her. Im not happy nothing can make me happy. All i want to feel is the pain she felt before she died. I want to die with all the pain she felt. All i want to do is die to be with her. I miss her so much. I just want 1 more hour with her. I blame myself. I was not there when she needed me the most. She kept telling me not to come home that she was not planning to die soon, I got the a few days to late. Its all my falt. I should have been there.

Eight weeks is not that long at all to adjust to the shock of losing your mother, especially since it probably brings up past loses that make it even more difficult to face yet another loss. My heart goes out to you and I hope that the pain starts getting easier for you to manage!

Today it is 8 weeks since my mom died. I still am in shock and find it so hard to believe that she is gone, that she brought me into this world and now she has left me all alone. She was the last of my family. I miss her so!

It has been six weeks since my mom died and the pain is starting to come through for a bit then goes back and is buried deep. I do not feel like doing anything, I used to love to watch tv, read, be on my computer and I have to force myself to do the things I need to. I just don't care.

I live in San Leandro, which is close to San Francisco...Thanks for the support and I know what you mean. My mom is the one who really encouraged me to go to college and supported me in every way possible. My dad is really supportive as well, its just different because I could talk to my mom about everything. The good thing is that Im growing closer to my father and our family has been growing closer to each other.

Katie,

I see you live in California, what part I used to go to San Diego and my mom who passed love San Francisco. Yes it is so hard. Its very hard when you lose your mom as she is your cheerleader, sounding board and I could talk to mom about anything and nobody seems to care anymore how I feel or my achievements! My dad is gone also and I had just gotten used to him leaving and now this....so much responsibility now. Car is in bad shape and no money i am finishing up college.
Comment by Katie Grace on September 15, 2009 at 7:28pm
I can definately identify with feeling like you have changed so much...there are days when I am emotionally all over the board and don't really feel like myself. Some days I will be doing fine and other days Im an sobbing because I haven't been able to really pick up the pieces ever since my mom passed. My life seems to have fallen apart and its hard to move forward. I am doing so slowly but its a struggle many days.

Feeling alone

I’ve been through a lot. In 2014, my father became officially bedridden on Christmas day due to Frontotemporal dementia and my sister was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. She went through operations, a colostomy bag, and 6 months of chemo. In 2015, my husband’s play went to Broadway, and for that play he was nominated for a Tony award, as was the play itself, the playwright, and 3 of the actors.We went to the Tony award ceremony on June 7, and the next day, out of the blue, he told me he…See More
