I lost my mom in June. It took me months to get used to not speaking with her a couple of times a day. I had to stop myself from calling her and telling her what her grandchilds just did. I was at a point where I had even good and bad days. Then I received my mom's W-2 in the mail last week and it all came back. I learned that I have to file her taxes from last year and I had to dig out her death certificate. I wanted to just lay in may bed and cry. The only reason that I don't is because of my…See More

About my Loss:
I lost my mom on June 13, 2011. She had been sick for a little while, but I didn"t believe that she would pass away. I came as a shock. No I feel as if I am lost. I used to talk and text my mom several times a day. No I don't know what to do.
I look at pictures of you and your mom and family and it could be my mom and me. We were so close too. When she died in June - I was with her holding her hand telling her to go to Jesus. I will never forget the life leaving her body. My mother, my darling mother was no longer in that body I have had in my life for 55 years. We shared a birthday December 19th. I was her favorite daughter (I knew this). Some days she would drive me nuts...others days were so blessed and wonderful. I miss her every minute. My life has changed. No more mom and Sue. Every weekend we would go shopping, have lunch and go to a movie. I miss that so much. I wonder if I was the best daughter I could be? I wish I had one more day to do everything I didn't do for her. I have such a feeling of loneliness inside. It hurts physically not just mentally. I know we will be reunited but its the days until then that are hard. I have no close family except for my moms sister and her kids in Michigan. My 3 sisters are just not very giving of themselves. Very selfish. How are you doing? Sue

"Bluebell, our moms wanted all kinds of things for us. They wanted us to always eat our vegetables, to never get mixed up with bad influences, etc. Don't beat yourself up because you are grieving. You wouldn't be human if you didn't…"

Hello -My name is Karen. I lost my only son at 22 years of age in a car accident in March of this year. I am doing "okay" considering. I have strong bouts of intense grief on and off and of course I miss and long for him daily. It really just SUCKS! I have surrounded my self with a support group and a Psychotherapist. I have also started to explore my Spirituality and looking for unanswered to questions to my existence and purpose. I welcome anyone that would like to share their experience…See More
"Theresa, it's horrible that someone would say, "It's not the end of the world" to you. That is cold. I am so sorry.
Your mother in law... again, I am so sorry. You deserve better than that. We all do."
"I hate to use the word resentment because I have enough on my plate right now. It takes energy to resent people. Negative energy. There is already too much of that in my life.
The really hard part is that I got so much unconditional love from my…"

"One of the things that makes me feel very guilty (here) is that I do not want to discourage anyone who is making progress. I don't want to bring them down into the pit with me.
