About my Loss:
I lost my mother on March 3,2014 to Myelodysplastic syndrome(a type of leukemia). She was diagnosed in June 2011 and the doctors decided to monitor her condition.In 2012, they went forward with putting her on a few clinical trials which worked for about a year. My mom was then cleared for a bone marrow transplant with her brother being her donor. She was unable to have the transplant due to infections.
FEB 27- She woke up confused and had a high fever. We rushed her to the hospital. They found that she had bleeding her brain that comes from a person having low blood counts. She died a few days later 3-3-2014
She was only 56 years old and strong christian. I believe that she is in Heaven but my life on earth is very empty.
I have been attending a grief share group at my local church but decided to try this out too. I am hoping to meet friends who are on the same grief journey. I know this is not really a fun group to belong to, but we need to walk through life with others who understand our pain.
Feel free to message me or comment if you just want to talk!
I am open to hear your stories about your loved ones, good or bad.

My mother had a stroke in October of 2015. She changed over night due to the aphasia and brain damage. She was a new person, half of who she once was. I began grieving my mother in October. I turned of all emotion and detached myself during the caregiving. It was just way too hard for me to deal with her conditions and my father's emotions. My family are gifted with abilities, mine was empathy and third sight. Most may not believe in that stuff, but it is more than real to me due to years of…See More
