Thank you all for showing your love and support for one another, also thank you all for visiting my site to read my story on why I do what I do with Beachbody... ( we must take care of ourselves so that we can be here for others...One way I do that is via fitness, I never want anyone to experience the day I lost my mom. Feel free to email me at

Wishing everyone the best during the holidays. Trust me, I know its hard... this year is the 2nd year without my mom, and my first time ever being away from my family. This time of year was my mom's favorite. She loved christmas. I know that my family is suffering without her there, and we are all suffering with me being stuck here in Afghanistan. Try to keep your head up, it will pass, eventually. I was told that the pain would go away with time... I'm still waiting for that day.

My name is Eileen and I am new to this site. I am so grateful to have found it last night.  I have read many of your stories and am sorry for your losses.

I miss my Mom so much.  She died in July 2008 and there is a huge hole

in my heart. The grief is unremitting.

hey jalysa i know how yo feel more than you think my mom passed in may 14, 2010 and we had her cremated and she was baried with my grandma in puerto rico and i live in miami on august i went up there for my aunts wedding and i really tried hard to go to her cementary and no one would take me and i was so upset because i cant just go on a plane when ever i felt like it to go visit her so believe me it was hard because that would be the first time i go to her grave since we baried in july and i was really depressed but your mom is around and she knows you havent fogotten her memory and she is glad you tried to make an effort. i dont nessecarily agree with your grandma that is your way to cope because your mom isnt around anymore so you want to be where she is even if it is in body just to feel like your doing your part just to prove to your self and her that you still cherish her memory and you dont ever want to forget about someone that is so special and important in your life its not a wound its closure and healing in a way atleast for me it would be if i can actually go and visit her

My mothers birthday was in November and I tried my best to get over to her grave to give her flowers, but there was so much school work and then I had work... It seems like a very simple thing to do but for some reason finding time to drive 3 hours to give my mother flowers is one of the most difficult of tasks. But then again I think I'm afraid. My grandmother believes that by making the trip to see my mother that I would be reopening an old wound. But you can't reopen a wound that you never healed from to begin with, right? I miss my mother every single day. And the worst part is that I keep trying to build this support team of people that will understand me and love me just as she did. But it is not working. I use to have a support team in HS, but when I went to college they all went and did their own thing. The absence of my mother has affected my relationships to some degree. I keep trying to find that unconditional love in my dating life but it doesn't seem to work that way... I don't know. It is all so hard to figure out. I wish someone gave me a manuel so I would have had time to prepare for all of this.

I am happy that we all are able to express our feeling here... it has been a tough time for all of us...I know my mom (our mothers) are happy with the way we all turned out... Now my concern is all of you.... hope we all are taking care of ourselves. Taking care of myself has been my main priority.... Please let me know if I can assist you as well... we are in this together, I love that there is support out there to help us. Those who are interested in starting to take care of themselves via fitness and health, please visted my beachbody site...I am coach now only to help people not experience what my mom pass from...heart disease..

I'm so sorry for your loss. I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU ARE FEELING. In March of 2006, I lost my Dad and both my grandparents. They were like a week apart. Then in March of this year ( 2010 ) I lost my best friend. A week later I loss my mother. Then in July of this year, I lost my closest sister, who I took care of for 4 years. As you can see, I've been socked in the stomach. On Thanksgiving, my family and I are gonna celebrate it ( Thanksgiving ) in my parents house, for one last time,. The way I have been trying to get through grieving process, is going to grief support groups. To be around people who are going through the same thing, is such a help. Let your baby, a gift from God, help you too. Put all your time into him. God blessed you with a child for a reason. I also do scrap books or memorial books of the people I've lost in my life. Do some journaling. That can be your best friend because in that you can say everything you feel. There's no reason to hold back with that.
Try to have a nice Thanksgiving. Make it special for your father. Be there for him. Make sure he doesn't need something. Let his grandson help him too. Plan outings with him. Take him to a support group with you.
Hope it all works out for you. Give it a try. Have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas. Your more than welcome to send me mail to my email address which is hope to hear from you soon.
