I am a 78-year-old woman who suffers from chronic pain and a lot of other health issues.
About my Loss:
I lost my best friend of 65 years a little over a year ago and just can't seem to cope with it. We spoke on the phone every night. I live in IL and she in CA. She was more than a friend, more like a sister. We supported each other, were always there for each other. She had cancer surgery and they got everything. She was in recovery and told her step-daughter she thought she was dying. They rushed her somewhere but she died from A-fib and they could not save her. Within 15 min. I had gotten two phone calls, i.e., she made it, they got it all and she is fine, then, she didn't make it, she passed away from A-fib. I can't think of her without crying. I miss her so. I think she took my heart with her.

It has been like this every Saturday since June, since the nurse at the care home called me to notify me that I could pick up my mother's effects. My mother died in April.
I am overwhelmed.
I am crushed.
I love you, Mom. I…"
"Sixteen weeks ago today, my mother died.
For some reason, I do not feel crushed today.
But every Friday is going to be like this, a reminder that she is dead. Not quite the kick in the stomach reminder that she is dead that I feel when I wake up…"
