I lost my Mom on July 25th of this year(2017) 6 years after my Dad. I don't understand why I cant cry, I mean I know its a complicated process when things don't go as planned. My Mom spent some much time in and out of the hospital the last 15 years; every time was "the time" but then she would rally and be shopping days later. I admit I thought she would live forever, or at least longer than me so I never really saw this day coming. Still I don't understand why I don't cry!

I am thinking constantly about my Mom and feeling sad

Comment by Angela on August 18, 2017 at 12:06am

I think because my daughter is giving me my first grand child it has blocked out some of the hurt I feel. Even though I am not crying I do think about my mom all the time, everyday

My mom had renal failure , she passed away December 2015. I still miss her everyday of my breathing, during this time I had broken my right wrist on a Friday Dec. 11 2015 my mom died on the 17. The pain was in so many directions, leaving the Hospital was so hard without her, I now am cleaned it out all her clothing which is hard, but I'm ready. Yes I still get so sad at times, but she's so much better with the lord. I love you mom, see you again,

I very much appreciate your comments ladies, it is good to get other peoples perspectives on things that we cant figure out for ourselves.  I admit to being really introspective and perhaps that is why I have a need to understand my feelings. I did love my mom but her and I had a really rocky relationship my whole life and some of her last lucid words to me were really mean. probably from fear but still, and no one else knows about them.

Angela, I'm sorry you lost your mom. I think we all believe our mom's are immortal in some way and when they do die it shakes us to our core.

While I did cry when my mom first died, it wasn't the gut-wrenching cries I've had in the months following her death. I think now, I'm processing the fact that she isn't ever coming home. There's this finality in death. Also I was mostly numb initially. I've felt a lot of anger (the grief process isn't linear) and now this profound sadness. I wish I could stop crying everyday. I wish I could stop the anxiety and panic attacks that overwhelm me at times.

That said, I agree with Patricia, when you're ready you will. Don't beat yourself up about it. The fact that you're writing about her shows your love for her and that will live forever.

My Mom was sick for a long time too. But she still went about her daily life. Even when she could less things, she was still my Mom, always at the end of the phone line. Her house was always perfect when I visited. I lost Mom Oct. 1 of last year. Everyone is different and grieves differently. I feel her loss like a deep hole in my chest. I didn't cry for a while. It was just a quiet pain. I think I wanted (and still want) to keep her close and I feel like if I cry I'll release some of that pain. When you're ready you'll cry. It may come when you don't expect it. I'm sorry for your loss, Angela.

So painful without my mommy

I don’t speak to any my sisters either , they are accusing me of helping Hospice poison my mother with morphine .. They never helped me care for my mom, I’d have to beg them and they always caused an argument and would block themselves from phone calls to help with my mom .. They I would go as far as to call my mother and I ask my mom “why doesn’t Patricia put you in a…See More

Totally tired of my life and lack of emotions.

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
