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…"
I am so sorry for your loss. The journey of caregiving is extremely difficult. The loss of our especially loved dear ones is unspeakable.
There are so many different ideas about what happens to us when we die. Religion teaches many different…"
"I just feel like I am in a fog. I have a little dog that is at least ten years old. She adored my Mom & she has really grieved for her. I know how you feel about your dog. I worry about her. She is all I have. …"
"Me too Brett, I sit here an look at my 12 year old Labrador and I know he is on borrowed time, and my heart breaks, losing him will be something that I am not looking forward to.
As you said Brett, we have the live our lives until we are called…"
"Yes, I was looking at something that popped up on my Yahoo news feed. It was an article naming 106 celebrities who have passed away in 2019. So many names and faces that I remembered. Now they are gone, and they aren't coming back. Their time…"
"Brett so true she was my security blanket
I feel like I have no one to lean on that understood me like her
You know what keeps coming in my mind. How true it is and scary that everything has a beginning and an end."
"I hear it all the time you don’t know how lucky you were that your mother wasn’t sick and you didn’t have to take care of her I say to them lucky I was lucky that my mother died and I was not right by her side to tell her I love…"
"M, the problem is that our security blankets were ripped away.
Like you, sometimes I am glad to be sad. I feel like I am closer to my mom when I am crying. At least, her memory is fresher with me when I am in that zone.
I feel like the hard reality…"
"Theresa, millions, billions of people have lost their moms. Sometimes someone will tell me that they have lost their mom, too, but they were able to deal with it, and they wonder why I haven't dealt with it as well. This may sound like an…"
"Me too ...I was sitting marking a paper yesterday and suddenly realized that I can’t see or talk to my mother about this or anything else and the tears came. But I’m glad to think of her, in a way I can be glad to be sad sometimes.…"
"I sometimes will just be sitting down and I start to cry because I keep thinking I miss my mom so much my whole world is just not the same I think that I’ve become a different person it will be four years and I still cry
I can’t put into…"
"Definitely a colder world now. I like the image of the security blanket — like, as we go forward, we will always keep it but eventually may be able to wash it, fold it nicely, and put it in some place of honour close at hand but without…"
"It is such a traumatic event, especially when you have had a wonderful Mom. It is so hard knowing she is gone. Knowing this is permanent. There is no one that can fill the void she left. My brother was close to Mom, but he…"

"While I never forget that my mom is gone, for some reason it just hits me over the head sometimes. Just out of the blue I'll be like, "Mom is gone." It's horrible. It's ever present. And the thing is that it is always with…"
"My Mom also. I could always talk to her about anything & knew she was someone I could totally trust. I am constantly thinking of something I want to share with her & then I remember she is gone. I loved spending time with…"
"It is still numbing to think my Mom is gone & I can't talk to her or see her again. I lost part of me when she passed. Someone said the restless feelings I have are really anxiety. Daily crying is part of my life. …"
