I appreciate the words that you said and I totally understand when you say you feel like you will never be ok again...Reach out when you can to whoever you feel comfortable sharing your grief with...I sincerely hope that they will sit with you and hold your grief with understanding and care. All too often people are so uncomfortable with death...they think if they call you/visit you it will just remind you of your loss and make it worse. What they don't realize is that it is not possible to hurt anymore than we already do. I was so hurt by old childhood friends that I thought would contact me after Mom died but I heard nothing at all from anyone. I just don't understand how you can not at least Acknowledge the loss...
Anyway, please take the time ( I know it's hard when you are a Mom and doing things on your own), a few minutes here and there, to stop and breathe and look after you:-). You deserve that!
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are not alone in this and we all understand what it is like to lose your one and only Mom. It's been almost 4 months since my Mom died and I have never felt more lost or angry in my life. Regrets of things left unsaid weigh heavy... wish everyday I could have just one more day, one more moment. Sending light, hugs, and strength to you.

"I'm so sorry, Theresa. It's too bad the lot of us don't live nearer together so we could meet and support one another. One thing I've learned through this is that there are people in our lives who can be thoughtless and…"
I can relate so well to this. I can't tell you how many times I have said and felt these exact same things. I'd see a recipe that looked good and start to call my mom to tell her about it, I'd create a piece of art but she…"

I am forced to do all of these things as quick as I can because I have to go back to work soon. I am trying to finish all of the paperwork. I was forced to do things quickly even though I am so emotionally distraught. My world stopped when…"
I am so sad that your husband died a sudden death. My partner and I had a conversation about what's the worst thing that could happen to him. We talked about it for hours and we cried a lot that night. In a way we were saying…"
