This is the place to come to see that there are others feeling just like you.  Lost my Mom in January.  Keep pushing myself to work thru this and I am getting better.  I can't see an elderly person in public that I don't cry over, can't start a conversation with my sister and bring up my mother that I don't cry over.  It helps to read what Rachel just wrote and what Robin wrote and see that they have similar feelings though.  I am not alone.  I'm 59 years old and I feel like a young child that lost her Mother not a Senior Citizen.  Really don't think it matters what age you are when you lose your Mom the feelings are still the same.  Complete total loss and emptiness.  I will think of you today Rachel Lynn and Robin and keep you in my prayers.  Things will get better.

Thank you Rachel Lynn. Its so refreshing to see people who are hurting reaching out to help even in their own pain. I really appreciate that. What made this loss very hard was the fact that I had lost my brother suddenly in June of last year. I hadn't even come to terms with that loss when it happened. I know death is part of life but how much can one take? There are days when I don't even want to be alive but I know my mom would want me to live a full and joyous life. I think the most difficult deaths are those of a mom or a child. I just pray that one day I can think of her without feeling completely shattered. God Bless you Rachel.

that call is the hardest part mercy....god bless you.....I feel as you do....how do you go on?  its very hard....I miss her each and every day....she was such a part of me....it will hit you at times you dont expect, you just have to find ways to cycle through it....she is with God sweetheart, at peace and love, but she is also still with you, know that, as my mom is with me, thats the beautiful part...try to believe in that....it keeps us going....depression is normal....I stopped "living" for a few weeks, then got very sick from not eating....I'm better now, but have an emptiness in my heart I cant replace....I need counseling but too afraid to dig deeper....its so so hard.....

Its been ten days since I got that dreadful call that my mom had passed away. I've been out of the country for a while and we mostly communicated by phone. I miss her terribly and wonder how I can cope or go on wothout her. I was numb the first few days but now its hitting me. How I wish I had been able to see her or talk to her one last time. I had prayed so hard that she may make it until my next visit; unfortunately God had other plans. All my coping skills seem to have been totally challenged. I'm so lost, so depressed.

Hi Lisa, I also just lost my mom recently and as many have already said about their own moms, my mom was my world and each morning I wake up and say how am I going to make it through this day without her. Here are some of the suggestions that were given to me that I find helpful. 1. To feel whatever feeling I am feeling, even if I don't know what that feeling is. 2. Set aside sometime each day to write a journal about these feelings. 3. Join a group or group just like this one and try talking about how you are feeling. All three of these help me, I hope that it may help you as well. My thoughts and prayer are with you.

Lisa-

I too am also tired of everyone telling me how time heals.  It has been 10 months since I unexpectedly lost my moma and there are still days when I wonder how I will survive this.  I think people are trying to be kind but they just don't understand.  If you are anything like me then your mother was your mother, mentor, best friend, counselor....the list goes on and on.  It's not easy to move forward after such a loss.  Talking w/ others in this group is a great way to begin coping other than that it is a day by day battle.  Your emotions can change from one minute to another.  I will pray for you and pray that you will get strength through this difficult time.

Hi Lisa.  Know that people are just trying to give you support.  Trust me I hate hearing that "what your feeling is normal".  My mom died on May 7th this year very unexpectedly.  The only thing I have been able to do to cope is go back to work.  My job has been the best therapy and everyone I work with has been very supportive.  I told them to not ask me how I am or to say that they are sorry.  I asked them to let me work and focus on something else.  It isn't easy, but it's all I can do.

I lost my Mom this past January at the age of 95.  She lived a wonderful life but I wanted her with me longer of course.  I moved here 4 years ago after a divorce to be closer to her and spend more time with her and we did just that.  I have been at such a total loss without her in my life.  It's a struggle to get up and face the days.  Every elderly woman I see when I'm out brings tears to my eyes as a reminder of my Mom.  My Mom was such a positive outgoing person I know this is not the way she would want me to be but I'm having such a hard time shaking it.  I came here in the hopes that thru others I would gather the strength and comfort needed to get thru these days and guidance to move on.  Hoping also that in the same way I could help others as they go thru their grieving process.  I don't know how to work the site just yet but hopefully that will come.  Thank you all for your support.
