All your messages ring so true to my ears.
I'm only 20, my mum passed away 3 months ago, she was only 52.
It all seems so unfair. I still need her so so much. My best friend, i could talk to her about anything and ask her advice and she would always be there for me. She's the only person that I assumed would love me unconditionally "forever" and now she's gone so soon from my life :'(
She was ill for years but no one ever took her seriously, always said she was just depressed, then in January she was finally diagnosed with cancer, but it was too late, it was already spread everywhere. After 4 traumatic months and a stroke later, she was partially paralysed and couldn't speak and then finally died in my arms in April, 3 days after my 20th birthday.
It still doesn't seem real, I can't believe it. I lie awake at night crying, picturing my mum in her final days, so weak and so ill, looking so unlike herself. Where did my beautiful, strong mother go? my rock and my strength :'(
I just don't know what to do anymore :'(
