Lost Without My Mom

My mom died, August 17, 2009 of an apparent heart attack from heart failure. Her doctors never told me how sick she was and so I was blown away and am heart sick and lost without her.

Jenny with sudden and unexpected it takes a while to even accept what has happened so take it slow. Best to you.

Hi Julie, I lost my Mum this January.  She too had a heart condition that we knew about but she passed on very suddenly and unexpectedly.  I am sorry to hear that you were not informed about your Mum's condition, it must have been such a shock.  I still have to keep stopping myself from phoning her, forgetting momentarily that she will be there to pick the phone up.  To never hear her voice or have her advice, taste her cooking is heartbreaking.  I miss just looking at her.

i am most definitely lost without my mom.  i sometimes feel like i am alone in a dark hole searching for any light whatsoever- the loneliness is all consuming.

I felt resentment but his mother is going to call for no reason every time she feels like it. I can't let it tear us apart because it almost did. It still bothers me, but she's not going to change, she needs her attention. I guess she figures after a few months I should be over it. Her mother is still alive, almost twice my mother's age and she will never understand. Yeah, I still feel jealous.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences regarding your Mom, Michelle. I too can't help feeling jealous of people who still have their mothers. I even harbor a secret resentment towards my sister who I feel is closer with her Mother-in-Law than she was our own Mom.

Hello, I am new to this too.  My Mom passed away on August 24th and I am so devastated.  I feel so guilty for not doing more. I am so jealous and bitter of everyone that still has their Mom.  Does anyone else feel jealous of others that still have their Mom?

Dear Kristin,
Thank you for responding and also for your condolences.please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss. I can totally relate to you. In your profile information you said : *taking care of your mum defined you*. This is what I say all the time. I took care of my mum for 14 years and those were the best years of my life. She was the best , most wonderful mum EVER. It was my privilege and honour to take care of her. Even though she was sick I was always hopeful and confident of facing the world. Now that shes gone I feel hopeless.the thing is she cheated death and survived several times in the past. This time she did'nt make it. I feel we her family failed her in the end. We fought with the hospital staff, pleaded them to show some humanity but they were incredibly cruel. Mum felt isolated and unhappy in the ICU in her last few days. This haunts me day and night. I will never forgive the hospital authorities. I will always carry this sorrow till the end of my life . How do I ask for her forgiveness? How do i tell her how much I love and miss her. Why did such a great human being suffer this much. These questions haunt me day and night. Please let me know if I could help you in anyway. I may be far away but am always ready to lend you my support and kindness. Please take care.
