I have read a little about the loss of your mom from your profile, but I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing a little more of your story with me. I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is looking at…"
"All I can say, through my own experience of losing my mom last year to cancer is that time does heal. I had just turned 23 before my mom had passed away last July 2011. It does get easier. I understand how you're presently feeling, but things…"
"my mom has been gone since july 2011. i think about her daily, wishing that she was still here. i'm going to be going through some life changing decisions soon, and i wish that she was here to ensure that i'm making the right choices. i…"
Like you, I also lost my mother in the hospital. In the emergency room for that matter. By the sounds of your story, it sounds like your mom went through a lot. I'm a nurse at a hospital, so I have experience with the flashbacks -…"
"I don't think that there's a time limit, I think it all depends on how you're feeling. In my experience, my mom passed away in July and within a few days after her funeral, my aunt put my mom's clothes that were in her suitcase,…"
"My mom was 43 when she passed away from stage 4 lung cancer, with mets. (July 2011) I'm not sure why people tend to think "things happen for a reason," because to this date, I still don't understand this reason. As my mom…"
I also feel like I could have written your story. I'm only 21, and I lost my mom 6 months ago to lung cancer. I'm sure your mom would be proud of you regardless, especially because you've made it this far. I know that each…"
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
My name's Ashlee, I'm 21 and from BC Canada. I lost my beautiful mother on July 9th, 2011 to lung cancer and the complications that follow. For the first few months, it felt surreal. In fact, I felt that my mom was on vacation, and I was just "rooming" with my sister. She's also young, 20 years young. I live with my dad too, but he's a workaholic so he's away most of the time. My mom was a stay at home mom, whom I was extremely close to, but now I feel empty without her. I'm also a nurse on a medical floor. I help a lot of families going through grief, but most of them don't know my pain. Now here I am on this website writing my "About Me" in hopes that I can find someone to connect with, whom I can relate to.
About my Loss:
My mom was 42 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, with mets to liver, and adrenal gland. I remember everything from this day (June 3, 2011) like it was yesterday. My mom fought through 10 treatments of radiation, two chemotherapy and passed away unexpectedly 36 days later. It's the hardest thing I and my family have ever gone through. I miss her presence, her laugh, love, friendship, everything. I hate this.

"Theresa, it's hard for me to be positive about anything. I always feel like something bad is right around the corner. That's because every time I thought mom was safe and had cleared another hurdle, something else would go wrong. It's…"
"It's been a little bit since I shared but it seems like I'm just stuck, out of sync with everything included myself in a way. It's been like one long endless day. I don't know how to explain it even. I'm…"

That is so great about the phone call from the directors at the center, that must have made you feel like a million bucks.

"Avi, things like that scare the crap out of me. I mean, how do you know that you are actually communicating with your mom, and not something bad? I believe that you may open yourself to something that may attach itself to you. That's just…"
I send you my heartfelt condolences as well as a welcome to our website. It is a safe place to come and talk or vent about your loss. Talking is very helpful in sorting out how to move forward. I would like to share a paragraph from what…"
"No we should not, God is the only communicator Avi, you are right.
We should not disturb the deceased, they are in peace, it is us who are not in peace.
I still struggle everyday, I just have come to recognize that this is my new life. "
I m sure everyone on our forum had a very bad day. I just kept myself very busy all. Since I live in Florida and it is in the 70's I worked outside all day long. I feel Julian is with when I am outside. He knew I just loved the outdoors…"
Few days back I came to know an app EquoVox which can help you communicate with your loved ones who are deceased. It seems be fake to me but have seen some videos on you tube people claiming its real. Did anybody on this group…"
"Linda, thank you for the post. The words ring very true.
Today is Valentine’s Day, but fortunately for me, Joseph and I didn’t always celebrate on this day. We didn’t feel that we had to show our love and devotion on a specific day…"
