My mom and I always sang together.  Today I heard a song we used to sing together and it felt like a knife through my heart.  I always talked to my mom about musicals, last week I listened to "Guys and Dolls," and the first thought was to call my mom and ask her if she liked that musical.....then I realized I'll never know and a great great saddnes rose up inside me.

Katrina, I lost my mom in June, and sometimes, I still can't believe she is gone.  I still expect to see her walk in the door.  The pain in my heart is so heavy that some days I feel that I'll never feel any relief.  She was my best friend, and we did so many things together.  Everything reminds me of her.  People say that if you look you will see signs that she is still around.  I don't see anything.  I haven't had any dreams about her.  I wish I did.  I miss her so much.  I guess I don't have anything consoling to say.  People say it get easier.  I just hope it does.

I miss my mom more now than when she first passed away on january10. Just the fact i will never be able to talk to her or seen her again is devastating to me.  I wish she was still her.  i will miss her forever.

First off I would like to say I am happy that I now have somewhere to go to read and share my story with people that have lost their mom too.... I would like to say thank you for the creator of this page....Thank you for taking time out to read this. My name is Karon B. Porter I am 33 years of age from The Bronx. I have that average story with weight loss that everyone seems to have. However, what makes mines a little different from the rest is when I lost my mother at age 29. During this time, it was really hard for my family and me to understand the reason or reasons why she was chosen. She left this Earth at age 48 (That is a very young age) of a silent killer called heart disease. Something I knew could have prevented this from happening was being active. From that moment it was more of life change decision for me.

I am asking YOU.. to take care of yourself.... I workout everyday with p90x, Insanity, just to name a few... I am Teambeach body coach looking to spead the word of fitness on to those who will listen, and plant the seed in those who are not ready.... if you are interested in learning more please email me ( or visit my


Thank you

Joan - I understand how you feel.  I lost my mom in June, and I don't think I've even accepted it yet.  I'm in counseling.  I've tried grief groups - which make it worse.  I've tried reading books - which are too hard to do.


Today I had to meet with someone from the cemetary to make arrangement for the plaque for her grave.  We're Jewish and we do what's call an unveiling about a year after a person's death.  Today was harder for me than planning her funeral.  I think I was still in shock right after she died.  Today I feel just awful.  I can't stop crying.  I know the unveiling ceremony will be very difficult.  I think I'll be glad when it's over.

Hi Joan,

I've found that often the way to healing involves finding what emotions the loved one created in survivors that's now missing. In other words, what was it that endeared your mother to you. Those feelings, once identified, can be found  in other people, activities, or interactions (e.g. a sense of worth that made someone feel whole was recreated by doing worthwhile things with foster kids). Nothing will replace your mother, but the emotions you lost can once again appear.

I lost my mom in 2007 to several strokes and then the final insult, Alzheimer's.  It was devastating.  I am still reeling after 3 1/2 years.  I've tried counseling to no avail.

I wake up each day extremely sad and see no end in sight.  I don't know where to turn and how to go on with my life.  I am totally lost and see no end.  My mother relied on me since my dad passed in 1994.  We did everything together, vacations, holidays, etc.  Simply we were bestfriends.  I have read all the books written on grief and loss.  They just make me sadder.

Thanx for listening.  Jon

My mom passed away a little over a week ago and I miss her a lot. I wish i would have spent more time with her. Had I known she was going to die soon, I would have been over at my parents house every day much sooner than I was. I would visit once a week and called but sometimes I was too busy and forgot to call. My mom had a caring bridge site and she had made a comment once about the local people visiting more and I don't think I visited until a week later. I gave her a hug and a kiss and told her I loved her every time I left to go home but I still feel sad. She had gotten cancer 25 years ago when I was a senior in high school and fought it and was in remission until it came back 2-1/2 years ago. I think part of me thought she was going to fight it again and be all better. She was too young to die - 72 years old. Going back to work has helped but today I was thinking about visiting my dad and then I got really unmotivated and indecisive and took a nap. The first few days after her death as soon as I closed my eyes I saw my mom. I don't know if this is normal but part of me wished I was with my mom now but I know that is not right - I have two children and a husband that love me very much. Not to mention some sisters and brother and my dad and other relatives. I just don't know.
