I Miss My Parent(s)

I created this group for people who may be grieving one or both parents. I lost my Mom and Dad within one year of each other. Dad passed away from Lung Cancer and Mom passed less than one year later from Pick's Disease.

My mother passed away June 25th 2014 at 345 PM, We sat and held her hand, as she was non responsive, and totally relying on a vent for every breath she took, It is so hard not to feel quilt, As we removed the vent held her hand and with in 30 minutes, the life that gave me life, was no longer there. It is the most devastating thing to have to do. even after almost 2 1/2 months It is still so hard. The depression, and how it has all turned out, has been the hardest part.

Not getting the 'gap' is a killer.  Anything less than a year or so can be devastating so Wendy is really on the mark.  I get panic attacks often.  Sleeping was somewhat ok in the first year.

Beth we are here for you but just so you know the symptoms are normal.  Each day of the first 365 days is a grind.

Comment by Wendy (Boabie) on August 13, 2014 at 11:55pm

Beth, I can relate totally. I was in a panic for many months. It's been nearly a year since my mom passed and two for my dad. And I sometimes feel panicked now. As an only child my mom was my world. I know your parents are together in heaven. I know our parents would not enjoy seeing the pain we are in. But, it is so very hard.  It took months before I could really sleep like normal. I was a mess.  Know that we are all here for you.

I lost my Dad on May 31st and my Mom on June 22nd this year. I am struggling to understand how everything could change so quickly. I am having difficulty sleeping and have moments of panic where I worry if they are okay. I think this is probably normal part of the grieving process, but I feel so lost and disconnected with the world. I hope they are together again...

The double loss is so heartbreaking! I lost my parents within 11 days of each other. I miss them both so much and the pain is still there everyday!
