M adams, mam small party for the relatives. her bday is on 10th Aug. My mother dies on 15 May 18 and she was born on 10 Aug 18. She is a motivating factor for my father to live and light at the end of tunnel for me.

Avi, so glad you had a good dream of speaking with your mother, that is always something to cherish.  What are the birthday plans for your little girl?  

Comment by Brett Bowman on August 6, 2019 at 1:10pm

Avi, what you just wrote to Theresa is so true. People will allow you a short time for grief. If it goes on pass that time they will think you are over dramatic, or that you have mental problems. 

I wish your little girl a wonderful birthday. What a blessing she is for you.

Avi, I am so glad you have your little angel.  I have dreams of my Mom & they are always so comforting.  My Dad passed almost ten years ago & sometimes I dream of them both.  Those are always such good dreams getting to be with them again.

Hi Brett, 

I feel what you experienced. I have a family as well but still I feel void sometimes. 

I was very happy yesterday as I saw my mother in dreams. She was talking to me on some topic and I was really happy to have conversation with her in dreams but till night I was again feeling the void and hope my mother would have been alive. 

My angel is turning 1 on Saturday and she is my ray of hope to drive me through this dark tunnel. 

Theresa, other people will never understand your grief as they feel that you are overreacting. 

Any one who wanna talk please feel free to add me on skype at live:avitiwari26

Thanks

M Adams, thank you for what you wrote.  My life is so different without my Mom.  She was such a caring, giving person.  She worried if I was a little late getting home.  Now it doesn't matter.  My sweet little dog meets me at the door.  It will never be like it was, but I am so thankful for the Mom I had.  I have wonderful memories, but missing her hurts.  

Brett, I know how you feel.  I have friends, but it is not the same.  They are busy with their families & lives.  I always felt so lucky that my Mom & I were close.  I know I was blessed, but it feels like part of my life is missing now.  Take care,

That's the hard part. When I started my new job in February I had to list an emergency contact. I don't really have one now.

Friday night we had a lot of flooding on our area. I didn't realize how bad it was until I tried to drive home from work. Every route that I tried was blocked by the police. I had to wait in the parking lot of a grocery store until one of the roads opened. It just occurred to me that there was no one for me to call to say that I would be home late, and no one really cared if I had to spend the night in a parking lot. Well, my dog cares. She would have been howling until I got home. It's just not the same thing. No one to coordinate with. I have friends but not family.

Sue, what you say about your mom is so touching and true, it brings tears to my eyes.

She always told me to be careful when I went to work that she needed me.  I always knew she was there for me & cared. ”

My mother and my husband were both like that for me, caring and worrying about my safety and happiness. Of course I took care of them as well, but it wasn’t an exchange, it was love.  Not having the people who truly care, going on alone after they die, makes life so bleak... tough to keep motivated to take care of oneself, all the endless tasks, big and small, and all the fear, without the loving concern of someone in the world who puts you first, sees you as special and uniquely important, not just as a useful bundle of functions.  I know I was lucky to have experienced that kind of  love — it’s a very different, much colder world now. Important to go on and to have gratitude, I think, but it’s also very hard.

Theresa, I am sorry for what you are going through.  You are right, other people do not understand the loss of your Mom.  I was so close to my Mom & she was my best friend.  She always told me to be careful when I went to work that she needed me.  I always knew she was there for me & cared.  I am thankful I could be there for her, but I miss her so much.  I have anger toward family & some people I thought were friends.  I don't want to talk to some of my family.  I guess now I can see how they really are & it hurts.  Take care, 

Comment by Theresa on August 3, 2019 at 1:50pm

So true Brett and Sue, people have no idea what we have went through until it happens to them.

Brett, I have become bitter, I have so much anger inside, and no tolerance for people at all.

Sometimes I think about quitting my job and looking for another one, that I can be away from people.  Its ashame.....
