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
I am 32 years-old. I am married with two wonderful children. I just finished completing work for my second master's degree.
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

"Went to the 2nd session of support group. Grief is grief and hurts no matter what the loss. It hurts, you feel alone. I have learned one thing from group is we are not alone. There are 2 different groups those that are…"
"I had that feeling when my nephew called me and told me his brother had killed himself one year after my brother (their father) died. It was a weird sensation I have never felt before. From the top of my head all the way to my feet just a rush of ?…"
I just found some thought that actually explains how I feel now:
Sounds familiar? Grieving and trying to be nice, crying and smiling to look nice next minute...
It is a great movie anyway - watch when you can."
"Thank you, Jackie.
Those horrible panic attacks just visit us often. Suddenly the whole world is turning black and no oxygen anymore.
Jackie, I accept you as acting Steve - I hope he does not mind - and I really appreciate your support - I know you…"
"Hi, Kim. Please don't feel sorry about discussing different topics; it's how our minds work and your words are a comfort to so many. Just knowing someone feels the same, hurts the same, has the same inner voice... the empty bed, the…"

Well, I sat to start looking for a job. It was already hard as I have a "meeting people & leaving the house" anxiety. Also, it…"

Having a glass of wine for my mom tonight and trying to wrap my head around the fact that she's been gone for a year. A whole year. A year without daily emails just so I'd wake up to an email every morning. A year without daily Skype chats just to catch up even though nothing much ever changed. A year without an e-card for every random holiday. A year without hearing about the dumb things my dad was or wasn't doing. A year without my best friend. A year without my mom.See More
I am the producer of a nationally televised crime docu-series. I am currently developing a new series focusing on unsolved cold cases, where the perpetrator is known but remains uncharged, many times because they are already in prison for life for another crime. That should not deter anyone else from getting justice. We will bring in outside, independent cold case detectives to rework cases to see if we can help. The series will underscore the hope, strength and tenacity of the families and…See More

If I could I would just copy each word of yours and paste it here.
I am exactly in the same boat. I know how you fell and what is going on with you. I will have 3 months tomorrow and today is 13 weeks since my Steve just gone, disappeared into…"
Again, I am missing my best friend tomorrow will be 7 weeks. I went back to work last week and it helped some. Getting into a routine helped. The issue I have is when I get home he is not there. That was our time together. Yesterday being father's day the adult kids were lost as was I. My son lives close by and my daughter is 300 miles away. I was alone without the kids, just my 2 little dogs. I am so thankful for them.They say go back to work it will help, they say it has been 6 weeks…See More
MourningThe outward expression of grief over a death or some other calamity. In Bible times, it was customary to mourn for a period of time. In addition to weeping loudly, mourners wore special clothes, put ashes on their head, ripped their garments, and beat their chest. Professional mourners were sometimes invited to funerals.—Ge 23:2;…See More
