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.

Its tough Tina and as the second year begins, it sort of gets a bit tougher as there is no history of the month in the previous year. Trying to function individually is how I am doing it too.  I stopped feeling bad about people not understanding as they are not grief specialists.

Today is the one year anniversary of my mother's death. She died from  blood cancer that she was fighting for 3 years. This week has been particularly hard since it is the start of my second year without her. I am know aware of how much my family and I did have not talked about our grief. We just try to function and live our lives individually. My world still feels torn apart and I feel that no one understands the pain.

There is a feeling that overwhelms you when you lose your mom. My mom moved in with me in 2010 after finding out she had breast cancer. Everything was fine until last year. She passed away October 16th after a great fight. Me, my home and my family will never be the same. Miss her every minute! My heart goes out to all of you!

My mom was assaulted by unknown assailants in her bedroom.

16th January 2014 . . . . .An Act of brutality by unknown assailants in the face of a JUVENILE ,  completely changed our life . . .


Around 4 pm my father found my beloved MOTHER in a pool of blood in her bedroom. Mother, a religious lady, full of life and vigour, was hospitalized with severe head injury (multiple skull fracture) caused by some blunt object.

She remained unconscious for around 30 days . . . the most disturbing days of our life. She continued her battle for life with life support medical equipment. With her sheer willpower she came out of coma and gradually started speaking. Finally the day came when she was discharged (though paralyzed and completely bedridden) from hospital only to be mercilessly snatched away in next few days. The brave lady battled for life for long and departed for heavenly abode on 2nd March 2014

Hi Dana, I am sorry to hear about your Mum.  I know exactly how you feel.  I lost my Mum last January and my Dad September, 2013.  Recently though I have been thinking about my Mum more and I think it is, as you say, because it is Christmas time.  I was in our local store and saw the chocolates that my Mum would buy people for Christmas, it got me thinking of our routine that we would have when we would go into town to do the weekly shop.  I see my friends who still have a parent or parents and I am so envious but also glad for them too, they still have them and that is a real blessing.  Whenever I miss my parents though, I do think how they are not in any pain and that is a relief.  It doesn't stop me missing them loads though. I hope that you have family and/friends to comfort you as well as this site.

I lost my mom in Feb 2013 and for some reason it is hitting me really hard now.  She was 83 and was the kind of person that lit up a room.  I miss her all the time but lately it has been really difficult to deal with her being gone.  Maybe it's the holidays.

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.

Sea of Pain

I don't know what to do! It's been 2 months since Nancy's death and the pain is worse than ever. In the house I can'tescape the never ending reminders of her.

"Come Back to me'.At night, I pray to God to take me so that I won't have towake up to this relentless nightmare. Yet, I continue to wakeup, stumble out of bed and begin another day's charade.

Does it ever get easier?

My mother died on the 16th of June from neuroendocrine cancer. It has only been a little over two weeks and I am so lost without her. I'll think of something or I'll look at my phone and I think - I must ring mom. Then I remember and my heart breaks.I haven't seen many people since the memorial service because I can't stop crying when people mention her. The few people I have spoken with have told me that they are so sorry, but it only gets worse or that their mother died eight years ago and…See More

Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
