"Thank goodness my baby dog is doing well. To be honest, I still stay at my Mom's house even though I own a condo close by. I kept my dog there because my Mom's cat Charlie tried to attack him one time. I recently introduced my pup and…"
"Keep them as long as you like. There is no hurry and no rule that you have to get rid of them. My Mom's things are part of what I have left of her. My sister and I still are hanging onto her house. I especially will find it hard to sell it. I…"
"I am sorry for your recent the recent loss of your Mom. The grief can be so overwhelming right now. This is a good place to come and share because we all understand what you are going through.
I was my Mom's caregiver too. She was on Hospice…"
I was a caregiver to my mom for just over 4 years. She moved in with me after finding out she had breast cancer. I went to every single Dr appointment with her, every chemo, radiation and to her head shaving. I have 3 sister's and 1 brother but they didn't do anything to help. I felt so alone during the last few months of my mother's life that it's hard not to be angry at my siblings for not helping more. I look in every room of my home and see mom everywhere. I feel lost without her here. See More
I am sorry for your recent loss. It was very hard for me too Luisa to go through Mom's things. The hardest part was watching the boxes go out the door to be donated. I kept a few articles of her clothing and some other personal…"
Bluebell, your post is identical to my feelings and I'm sure others. I try to stay extra busy, distracted so I don't think about my loss. But as you say, grief always catches up. It caught up with me at 2am this morning and I couldn't go back to sleep right away. It caught up with me again while I was sitting in my office at work, it caught up with me again while I'm in my car driving home. My heart is broken too and I don't think anything can fix that.
I hope you find the purpose you are seeking. I haven't found it yet.
Hi bluebell I'm so sorry about what happened. This will be the first Christmas without my mom too but you can get through this. I know it's hard but I know you can get through it. Stay strong. She's watching over you and she's in a better place now out of pain. Hugs <3
Bluebell could you check my comment wall? The young girl that posted today, panda sounds really distraught and am concerned about her. She commented that she didn't want to be here anymore and said that no one wants her. Not sure what to do since she lives somewhere in Cranston, USA and I live in Canada. Can I contact the administrator of this site? Can't get her words out of my head and am worried about her:(. If you have time can you let me know your thoughts? Thank you
"Theresa, you can never say it enough. I kept thinking that my mom had taken her last breath, and then she would take one more breath. I kept saying, "I love you mom." When she finally did take her last breath, I wanted her to take another…"

For my mom she passed on the 19th of December, she was cremated on the following Monday, and I had to wait until after the Holidays to have her graveside service which was on New…"
"Luisa, My mom's funeral was delayed because of her death date (Christmas Eve). We had to wait until everyone was back in town from their holiday visiting. I think, I try not to think too much about that time, that it was almost two weeks before…"

I am so sorry for your loss. And your entire experience in this terrible loss.

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
