I live by myself now. I lived with my mother for 9 years before she died. I have two cats who belonged to my mom. My two cats died. One died two weeks after my mom died. I have good friends and family who are very supportive. I work full-time, mostly at home.
About my Loss:
I lost my mother in June and am having a very difficult time. I am in therapy, but still feel I need people to talk to about this. My family and friends are great support, but they don't understand how difficult this is, and why after eight months, her death affects everything I do everyday.

How are you doing? My mom always told me turn a negative into a positive, but I am having a hard time finding something positive about losing ny mom. She was such a positive person. I try to remember I am her daughter, which means I have some of her traits. While I was in shock i could deny her passing , after that it was much harder , having to face the fact she was gone and never coming back. I know my mom would want me to go on, and be happy.
I know exactly how you feel. I lost my mom January 10, 2011. It hurts more now than when it first happened. My life will never truly be the same without her. She was only 70 years old. Some days I think about her all day, and wish she was still here. It is hard for me too. I wait for things to get better too, and they don't get better. Once the shock wore off, it was a lot harder. My mom always told me when I was having problems to put one foot in front of the other. I say that to myself a 100 times a day. I still cry alot, and miss her terribly. Thank you for accepting my friends request.

"Miriam, thanks for what you’ve said here, think it will be helpful to many other people here and I hope writing it down will help you as well. What you say about the way you miss your uncle, the loss of rituals and of his expressions of…"
An uncle in our family committed suicide. For five years his wife, Aunt Alice, said the same things over and over again to anyone who would listen. We are a loving family, so we listened and said the same hopefully comforting things back to her again and again. And after five years she was done and could move on. I hope it doesn't take five years, but I need to talk about my Uncle Jim and my cousin Paul and probably repeat myself a lot. It took a long time to develop my relationship with…See More

Two months ago, my mom committed suicide. As of now, this has to be one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with in my life. I hope that through this forum I may be able to just reach out to someone who can kind of understand what my situation is like.My friends try to talk to me (and I do reach out to them) but I feel that the situation I am in is a really heavy thing to talk about (basically I don't want to rope my friends into my troubles, nor do I want to be a burden to them). I talk to…See More
"Dona, I am so sorry for your pain. A difficult relationship like yours always leaves all sorts of conflicting feelings that are hard to sort out. I hope that the support you receive here will help you find your way to a better place."
"Hi, I'm brand new, too. I needed some place to talk out the grief that other people don't understand and don't really want to listen to. Hopefully, this will be a helpful place for both of us. Whatever your loss, I…"
This morning there was a crescent moon. I always called it a "fingernail moon," but my cousin Paul called it a "toenail moon." I got all choked up seeing it. Then the Valentine cards are out at Walmart. He loved all the holidays, and I always sent him cards. But no more. More tears to fight back. Sometimes his love for you would overflow, and he would just have to give you a big hug and tell you that he loved you right then and there. I have never had anyone else do that for me. I knew…See More
