I'm so sorry for your loss. I loss my moma who was only 63 last July to a massive heart attack. She was perfectly fine one day and gone the very next. Every day is like a roller coaster physically and…"
"I understand about your family not understanding. I am in my early thirties so I really don't have anyone who can relate including my husband who still has both of his parents. You will cry (a lot) and at very odd times. I had…"
I am so very sorry for your loss. I too lost my Moma very unexpectedly. It was one year ago this week. I wish I had some magical advice for you but I don't. I am still a mess to be perfectly honest w/ you. …"
I know how you feel- I felt the same way on my birthday. My moma always made my birthday so special. It will never be the same. A very special aunt did remind me of how much my moma loved me and how she had never seen my…"
I can't even imagine enduring what you are going through and mourning your ma at the same time. I am proud that you are standing your ground. It takes quite a really strong person to keep moving forward. Keep us…"
I'm glad to hear your chest pains are letting up a little bit. It sounds like we are having a lot of the same physical problems (ie chest pains & bad indigestion). It sucks. I only think about myself…"
OMG- I really understand about being sick and the chest pains (sorry if we have talked about this before but they are all consuming for me). I was almost hospitalized w/ 5 infections in December, I keep getting upper respiratory…"
I'm so sorry for all of the terrible losses that you have experienced. I cannot even being to imagine what you are going through or how you cope. I admire your ability to get up and fight another day. I miss my…"
I'm so glad you did get to say goodbye to your mom. I hope that gives you a little peace in your heart. I wore a shirt of my mom's yesterday that I hadn't washed just so I could have her w/ me and still smell…"
I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my moma to a massive heart attack on 7/26/10. We had absolutely no warning. She thought she was having a flare up w/ her ulcer. I spoke w/ her a little bit after 5 that Sunday and…"
"Wow- you have really hit the nail on the head....that's how it was w/ my Moma. I went to her for everything and she always had the best advise. She was my moma, best friend, mentor, confidant.....the list could go on forever. …"
"Rachel Lynn- that was such a beautiful poem. I can so see my moma fluffing up clouds now. It will make me think a little differently every time I see a cloud. It also makes me remember laying out in the sun w/ my moma (before you…"
"It's so wonderful that you are all able to go to church. My dad and I went back 2 weeks after my Moma's passing. I really needed to be there. I too miss going back to my parents house and spending the remainder of the day…"
Thank you for your concern regarding the chest pains. Sadly I am STILL having them. I have had several EKG's and an echocardiogram. A cardiologist said he did not think I have anything heart related going on. I…"
"Thank you, Anna. After five months, most family members and friends don't want to hear about it any longer. I'm hoping that soon I will feel at least a small amount of healing. Thank you for listening and responding."
"Angela, for sure it is normal! I was in a sort of shock for a few months after my husband died just a year after our son. At three months after I was beginning to hit a bottom and stayed there for a long while. Everyone grieves…"
"Thank you for your caring response to my earlier post. I want to know if it is normal to be feeling so depressed and grief stricken after five months. There are days I do not even have the energy or desire to shower and every day finds me crying so…"
"Shortly before our son died my husband and I were up on the mountain at our little house that we built years ago when we were young and strong...I mean we literally built it...hauled the lumber in on an old flatbed truck over an old logging road,…"
"I, too, am comforted by birds. I have an Eastern Blue Bird couple who are nesting on my back deck. I enjoy their courtship, marriage, eggs, babies, and fledging from about 5' from my living room window. Such a pleasure this summer. So good to…"
"Oh Vasanthi and Mary..how beautiful ...and since God IS love...even our poor human attempts at love is a reflection or a tiny bit of HIM...He cares enough for us to let us feel LOVE...He MUST care about how we are feeling....
we went to the mountain…"
"Love and reaching out is the most important thing that I can do for others and myself, I agree whole heartedly! Yes, without faith in God, I would not be "making it" at all. I understand what you are saying Vasanthi. Recently re-read…"
"Love to u all here .. the lord is omniscient and omnipotent-- please trust that--not saying it as some religious crap but saying it because i firmly know it..how? because with all the severe trials one goes through, it still doesn't take away…"
"Michelle, I too, have a friend who has dropped me, but it's because she is dealing with un-dealt with grief. I understand her better after we've talked a couple of times. I miss her, but at this time in our lives we can't help each…"
"Thank you for taking the time to reply. Yes, I really do realize the remodeling is helping my mom. I don't say anything about how I feel because I don't want her to realize that her way of coping is making my coping harder, because that…"
"I have been super emotionaly today. A good friend of mine lost her mother 11 years ago today. She still grieves for her. At the end of June last year we found out my mom had cancer, she died 6 months later. I finding…"
"Angela, I am so so sorry. I lost my best friend and soul mate a year ago and I still cry every day and I still am having trouble moving on. I think we all grieve at our own pace. It has been such a short time for you. …"
"yesterday was my 41 wedding anniversary with my husband. I lost the love of my life 22 months ago. I took two red roses to the cemetery and said a prayer, I love Rick, more today than the day were married. We had a wonderful friendship for two…"
