Hi Geraldine.

I am so deeply saddened that you have had to experience this great loss, something no one should ever have to experience, but sadly do.

I tried my absolute best to keep mum here and safe with me, my siblings and the rest of the family and it does still hurt me so very much to know she’s not here anymore (especially with Christmas, her birthday and mother’s day approaching after she passed) 

Your husband would be incredibly proud of how hard you cared, and you should always be very proud of how hard fought. 

I am always here to support you!

sending love xx

No reason to live

No happiness.  Nothing to look forward to.  Constant pain.  Memories everywhere and longing to be able to make more or even talk about them.  Scared, needing answers, anxious, lost, angry, devastated, guilt ridden.   how could life be so cruel?  It’s just not possible.See More

In black and white

Today I had to respond to several emails and repeatedly write down that my mother is dead. Finding it very hard to keep writing the words, so hard that it took several days of tearful effort to complete the three most pressing responses.  Finally got them done.  I just miss my mother so much.  I hate picking up the phone now because some part of me still expects her voice at the other end of the line. I feel wounded by family and friends who are grieving so differently from me, who are keen to…See More
