I lost my mom a month ago. She was my best friend she passed away unexpectedly to a cardiac arrest.my grandmother my moms mother found her at 6am. I was blessed to have been born on Mother's Day which unfortunately for me this year my birthday falls on Mother's Day. This is going to be the hardest birthday yet. I don't know what to do i am so depressed all the time. It takes all i have just to get out of bed. It takes all my strength to go to school I have went to class once since that awful day and i wished i was at home. i was just glad that i had spring break this week. I tried to find a group here but i can't find one. The only one i did find has group on a night when i have school so this is my next option

I lost my mom six weeks ago tomorrow to lung cancer. When we found out she had the cancer she was already in stage four and the doctors gave her up to six months to live, she made it three. She was my best friend in the whole world and I miss her terribly. I don't know what to do or how to heal it it just hurts all the time. People tell me it will get better with time but how much time. Any support or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated

I lost mom to Colon Cancer on January 12, 2010. My mom was my best friend. We talked about any and everything. I don't think I have ever been so good at my job..haha..I have been trying to stay busy because I find it takes my mind off everything.... I miss her soooo much!!! I can't imagine not ever hearing her voice again. I was sitting at work the other day and just started crying thinking about her and the last time we talked. Do things ever feel normal or is this surreal feeling going to last? I dunno..I just feel lost in a way...

I lost my Mom on Feb. 12 and the last 3 days have been extreemly hard for me. I have never felt such pain in my entire life. Not only does my heart break, but my soul actually hurts and it is sometimes more than I think I can stand. my mom and I were very close, I was her only child and I need her more than I ever have and she's gone. I miss her so very much.

I lost my mom to cancer 3 years ago.Everyday I miss her SO much. I just moved to NYC and I never imagined how lonely it can get. I guess all those thoughts I have repressed for three years are coming to the surface. It all just sucks. I have no family I can talk to about this, and my friend, well I dont want to bother them with the same old talk. I am at that point in my life where I REALLY need her. I am 20 years old, and there is a lot I have to figure out in life on my own, with no guidance. It's suffocating sometimes, without her here I feel lost. She always gave the best advice, despite whether I wanted to admit to it. I am starting to forget what she looks like and what she sounds like. I wish I had pictures of us together, but my older sister took all of them and she wont let any one touch them. She's always been a selfish b****.
I want to talk to her so bad, I miss her and took everything for granted while she was still alive. Where do I go from this? How does it get better? I dont want to live in this pain for the rest of my life!

I did not mention in my last post something VERY important...my mom was/is my best friend...as close as you can be. In some ways it is best she did not watch my sister die. I am happy for that...but EVERY moment of EVERY day...I hurt for her...I miss her.
Comment by nice girl on February 2, 2010 at 12:58pm
oh.....so complicated....so sad...but reality. My sister was dying of AIDS/Cancer 38 yrs old. My mom was broken...blaming it all on herself (never was her fault) My Mom was so sad...no energy. I tried my best to support both my sister and mom. My mom died in Jan 09....my sister watched. Then my sister died 2 months later March 09...with out my Mom to hold her...I did, but everyone needs their Mom. My step father blamed my sis ter for my Mom's death....then he had a heart attack (May 09) He survived. (at the same time he had a new girlfriend 4 months after my mom died...i met her for the first time in ICU-my parents had been married for 25 years...it shocked me) My father survived. then 2 months later one of my closest friends friends killed his two small children, his wife then himself ( August 09) No one saw this coming...I had just talked to him the week before....also, i during this time...I took a promotion....then almost got restructured out of a job...I put my 14 year old dog to sleep and my 18 year old cat is terminal with cancer...I lost triplets during childbirth in 2004 ...yes, all this is true. So .... I am surviving...yup, friends did not know what to say....most were not there when I watched my sister die .... it was a HORRIFIC death. even hospice said it was bad (the morphine needle had fallen out and the morphine was dripping on the floor...we did not see that for 24 hours- i was on the other side of the bed) I do have a partner that has stood by me through this all...I am going to marry her this year. I am proud that I am making it through this....I am marching like a brave soldier...like i promised my mother I would. .

I lost my Mom about a year and a half ago to cancer. I was her caretaker and spent the last few months of her life with her-day and night. It was hard and heartbreaking, but I'm glad I did it. When she left this world, there was NO DOUBT in my mind that she loved me.
Now, after, I lost my job and had to move back to New Orleans to work. I am barely making enough money to get by. Most days I feel a little lost because I don't have Mom to talk to. She always knew what to say even when I didn't like what she said.
I currently find myself ANGRY. Just FURIOUS. About everything. It's affecting my work, my friendships, everything. Most days end with me wanting to pack everything up and leave. I want to go hide at my Dad's house in the mountians and not deal with the world. I think mostly because I'm tired of being mad. And generally I'm just mentally exhausted. I want to talk to Mom so badly I just ache. I feel like none of my friends understand (maybe because they haven't been through it themselves?) and I keep getting the words "you need therapy!" from a lot of them. These of course are the same 'friends' who didn't even call, email, write-nothing when I was going through watching my mother die. I need to talk to someone about it, that's for sure. My friends are tired of hearing about it, my family tries not to talk about it, I can't afford therapy and I DON'T want to take anti-depressants because I did right after she died and I couldn't stand the way they made me feel. I could hardly stay awake, much less function. I'm just seeking the ear of people who know what I'm going through and where I am in the greiving process. Did I post this in the right place?
