Paula Marie commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Theresa, I too, am an adult who lost a mother four years ago very, very unexpectedly and still am having a very, very difficult time adjusting to this new "surreality." I feel I've changed so much inside, and not in good ways. I feel…"

Paula Marie replied to cristian criss's discussion Agony after grandmum's death.
"This sounds very much like my experience of losing my amazing mother nearly 4 years ago. I felt totally empty and dead inside, and lost almost every reason to live. I clung to the few things left in my life that had meaning, and really just wanted…"

Paula Marie commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"It will soon be four years since I lost my mom and today the grief is worse than ever ... I wonder will it ever go away ... and do I even want it to go? I don't mind the constant sadness, but it often becomes so overwhelming in it's…"

Paula Marie replied to Mel's discussion Feel alone without my mom in the group Adult Daughters grieving the death of her Mother
"I think I'll grieve the loss of my mother for the rest of my life, though I'm near your age and my mother passed away 4 years ago come May. How can a good mother ever be replaced? She can't, because no one will ever love us like that…"

Paula Marie replied to Heather's discussion Ideas for letter to my mom in the group I miss my Mom!
"Hello Heather, I'm so glad I kept my mother's clothes, as it seems as if clothes are the very first thing most people donate and are rarely kept as keepsakes. I would have done the same (although I have not managed to part with anything…"

Paula Marie replied to Heather's discussion Ideas for letter to my mom in the group I miss my Mom!
"I memorialized my mother by making a quilt out of her clothing (it's still not finished, but I work on it when I wish to feel close to her). I learned of this idea from a grief group."

Paula Marie replied to Sue Sedia's discussion 6 months later, I feel like it just happened.
"So many things have hit you all at once, it's no wonder you feel as you do. And now, also losing the house. I've also had multiple losses that brought me down to my knees and made me feel that life just isn't worth the effort. These…"

Paula Marie replied to Cecilia's discussion heart broken for my husband
"I have the same problem. I've even felt much guilt over it, but have come to realize that tears don't always express the degree of grief. Crying, however, is a very wonderful release and I'd give anything to be able to re-possess that…"

Paula Marie replied to Cecilia's discussion heart broken for my husband
"I understand how you feel. Sudden deaths are so hard. One's entire reality is suddenly altered, a reality we never asked for or wanted. Life can change on a dime. It is like our loved ones simply vanished off the face of the earth. I'm…"

Paula Marie replied to Stephanie R's discussion How do I live without him.
"Hello Stephanie, I think the worst way to lose someone is so very suddenly like that. I've experience that, too. It leaves one completely numb and in a state of shock. Reality suddenly seems as if it has disappeared. If you'd like to send…"

Paula Marie replied to Stephanie R's discussion How do I live without him.
"Stephanie, I'm so sorry to hear of your tremendous loss. It sounds like it may have happened very unexpectedly. I lost two people who defined the word "reality" as I know it - they were my world - within five years, and I'm still…"

Paula Marie replied to Janet Shores Hoogendyk's discussion Murder, Suicide, And living in fear in the group Multiple Losses Group
"You are very brave, Janet, to have gone through all that. It will take a long time to heal, so just be kind and  patient with yourself. Are you seeing a counselor? Anti-depressants didn't change anything for me, but they certainly helped…"

Paula Marie replied to Psboston's discussion Brother was murdered January 2016
"I'm so sorry to hear of your traumatic loss. I never have gone through this exact same thing, but I have gone through many traumatic losses. I believe there may be a specific group on this site for those who have lost someone through homicide.…"

Paula Marie replied to Jason's discussion I want to punch people who say "I wish I knew her better."
"Anger is a part of grief. She probably needed you more than anyone and would have preferred to be with you more than anyone else. Sometimes, a truly great love from one person is enough. She was lucky to have you."

That's going to be such a beautiful quilt, Paula. And I know there's love sewn into every stitch of it! Your Mom is so lucky to have a daughter who loves her so much. Sending a hug...

Thanks for your comment on my blog!  That's really neat what your doing, making a quilt of your mom's clothes.  What a special way to remember her!  Even after six years, I swear that I can still smell my mom's perfume on her clothes and it's comforting.  It's so hard to lose a mom!

While I was sleeping

It has been 4 years since my mom died.  I still think about it every day, and can't seem to look past it.  I know I need to go grocery shopping.  I know I need to entertain my 4 year old but before I do anything today I want to share what has helped me tremendously in making my mom's death easier to live with.The first thing that helps is remembering her and being stubborn about NOT letting her go.  I don't have to let my mom go.  She already went.  The thing I do have to do is admit how I feel…See More
