About Me:
I am a 26 year old adult orphan, I go to school and will return to work shortly. I have began reading more and traveling. I have a loving boyfriend but not much family since I lost both parents. I'm really just trying to figure out my purpose of life.
About my Loss:
I lost the one woman that was my everything to me. My mother was my hero, my best friend, my counselor and my world. My mother was all the family I really had and God decided to take that away from me. I feel so empty and discouraged in my life, I just see myself falling apart.

So We always asks the question "WHY"?

Why did GOD have this fate for me? Why did GOD leave me to be alone? Did he think I did not need anybody and that I can make it on my own? Why? I feel so lost and distraught that I can't function? I know its been seven months but thats seven extremely hurtful months and those hurful months will turn into hurtful years. So why would GOD want me to hurt so long? Was it something I did? Was it something I did not appreciate? I don't know! I am 26 years old and scared as hell as what life has to…

Hi Brette, I am 49 years old as of Sept 7th.  My mom died two weeks before my 49th birthday on Aug 24th. So, technically, I was 48 when she died.

Hi Brette,

I feel and understand your pain and your sadness. Like you, I am young, and I lost my mom, too--last December to pancreatic cancer. It is so hard to lose your mom; it's lkke a hole ripped deep in your heart. I can tell you, with time, you will learn better how to cope with the loss. It doesn't ever go away, but you find ways to live with the loss and honor your mother's memory and live the life that she could not. The first days, weeks, months after my mother's passing were unbearably painful and sad. But, with time, I have started to see more light. I miss her every day, but I can also think of her and smile. What helped me in the beginning was to take it one day or one hour at a time. Allow yourself to grieve, and share your grief with those who can understand. Sending you hugs. Feel free to message me anytime.

I'm sorry about your mom's passing. I wish I could answer your questions. I lost my mom on Dec 27,2012. I'm 47 and I was lucky enough to grow up with both of my parents. Its not fair some people lose their parents young and others don't, it seems like one of life's mysteries.

Hi Again Brette, I'm so glad my message uplifted you!  It's funny, but I really think God communicates to us through others so I think he wanted me to send that message to you because I zero'd right in on your post.  Anyway, please hang in there.  I'm so glad to hear you do have a boyfriend, so you're not totally alone.  It's always good to have someone you can spend time with when you've experienced such big losses.   My mom was my very best friend too.  I was lucky in that I had her quite a bit longer on this earth than you had your mom, so that's why it breaks my heart when I see posts from girls like you who have lost their mom in their 20's.  I remember that's when my mom and I became so close and when I needed her most, but I really do think we'll see them again in heaven and until then, they're always with us in our hearts.    That much I feel certain of.  Take care, Tammy!

Hey!(: I don't really know how I'm minute I seem to have a lot of 'aha' moments and things that make sense and then the next minute, I'm back to being in dispair..these severly mood swings are killing me! The new house is great, it don't feel like home yet, but maybe it will soon!

At 8:34pm on September 6, 2012, Jennifer Blackwood said…

Thanks so much! I am 22, will be 23 in October, and she had just turned 46..I used to think that 46 was old but now that I'm older, it seems so young to me now. I never imagined that I would have to say bye to her, I always thought I would go before her..I don't know why, just how I always thought about it. I've lost many relationships over this and it sucks! How are you doing?

I would love to talk to you. I lost my dad in 2009 and my mom last year. She suffered during her battle with cancer and grieving my dad's death. She was my best friend. I am 27. I feel like No one understands and can grasp what it's like. I No longer have that support or love. I've been to grieving classes but it's normally people who lost a spouse. I'd love to talk with you and maybe be support for one another!
