I lost my mom last August and have visited this website when I felt really down and lonely and was missing her really bad. I'm not married and I don't have children of my own. I do have a sweet cat, but she's 14 now and really sick so I know I'm not going to have her much longer. I'd like to have another pet, but I don't want to freak her out, especially now when she's not feeling well.
About my Loss:
My mom passed away last August due to an aneurysm. She was my best friend and the one person I always knew who really loved me unconditionally. She was always there for me in so many ways and it's so hard to go through this world without her in it. I know she's in a better place, but it still doesn't seem to help me get through the rough times.

I hope things are a little better for you! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond, I haven't been on here in awhile either. I know everyone grieves differently but I felt like no one could understand what I was going through with guilt and shame, but that was my perception and I'm doing a little better with that. I didn't realize how much grief could change a person and their emotions. It's been difficult with the holidays, I always had her with me. I woke up to the smell of delicious food on Thanksgiving, and this year, I forgot it until I got on facebook and it was all over the news feed. It's just not the same at all!:/
You made a beautiful comment on my page. Those were words of encouragement and i am so happy that you shared those words with me. I was very uplifted read I read the post and I agreed with everything that you said. It actully made me cry but it was a good cry. All in all, thank you taking time to speak to me.
YES!!! It was on Netflix. It was a wonderful movie, I enjoyed it. I even cried, If only real life can be that way, when a random radio personality invites you to the station and solves your problem in 45 min. I've been going to counseling for 3 months, and all he does is nod his head and say, yes and of course. That Keith was a lucky guy.
My Mom passed away 12/29/11 2 days before her birthday, she had lung cancer and never told my family, we noticed her sleeping a lot and not eating or drinking anything. I finally called an ambulance and rushed her to the emergency room. She told the doctors she was in pain, but never mentioned the cancer. Mom had a cat scan and found she had 13 malignant tumors, some as big as a softball. She was terminal and didn't have long to live. We took her home and called Hospice for pain management and every day i watched her get worse, she lasted 2 weeks, the end of her life was very hard, her eyes didnt close or blink, her mouth was wide open and the death rattle was so loud like she had water in her lungs, her heart rate was in the two hundreds, her death was terrible, i cant get the picture out of my head, besides missing her, her dying in my presents makes things even harder. I know we are told that they are no longer in pain and in a better place, but that doesn't really comfort me. I hug her ashes every night and morning, i wear a locket around my neck that contains ashes, I will not put a shirt on if it isn't black. The crying has stopped, but the sorrow remains, all I want to do is stay in bed, sleep a lot and have no drive to get through my daily activities. I don't know what to do. How long will this last? I just need to make heads or tails of this.

"Today, I feel it.
It has been like this every Saturday since June, since the nurse at the care home called me to notify me that I could pick up my mother's effects. My mother died in April.
I am overwhelmed.
I am crushed.
I love you, Mom. I…"
"Sixteen weeks ago today, my mother died.
For some reason, I do not feel crushed today.
But every Friday is going to be like this, a reminder that she is dead. Not quite the kick in the stomach reminder that she is dead that I feel when I wake up…"

"Yes, it is much harder for me to concentrate or focus now. Grief, sadness, anger, despair -- they have all conspired to make it difficult for me to access my intelligence to the same degree as before my husband died. That is, my…"
"Bluebird, I am glad that you took that the right way. I had a feeling you would know what I meant. And your description is correct: I have a general idea of how you feel but it's impossible for me or anyone else to know…"
"I guess I can emphasize with the things you loved to do dying with the one you loved - as if that feeling has been pulled along, stretched thin to behind the veil. You don't have the energy to pursue them anymore, and just having something that…"
"Please don't apologize; I'm sorry I didn't respond to your last post in April, I'm not very good about keeping up with things anymore.
I don't feel that I'm moving forward at all, but I can see how that would work…"
