Hi, My mom passed away December 12, 2011. I am an only child and my father is in a nursing home. I was extremely close to my mother. I joined this board to see if I am the only one experiencing some feelings. Sometimes i feel so lost and alone.

Thank you, It just seems to be getting harder. i used to have a few good days in between. It seems like I am having more bad days and crying more. I guess i am also just scared.

You are not alone! I lost my Mom two years ago. The hardest thing I've ever gone through. Then this year my husband got sick and all I could think about was "I wish my Mom was here to help me through this". My husband passed away on 12/24/11 and now I am alone. But we can get through this together. The comments here help me remember I am not alone. We can all grieve and get better together!

It is so very hard but it gets better. I lost Mom on 123010, then my wife 040111. That's a huge heartache and 2 big black-eyes. I've learned that the reality of it all is understanding that all of your feelings are the reality. Grief, just like everything around us is a part of us all. The shock from the trauma does get calmer, but the grief is the reminder. Keep in touch and thank you for your friendship. People like my posts and say they have helped them. The one titled Pain and Peace is my favorite. Talk soon...Michael

Thank you Michael, It is so hard. If i have a decent day, it is followed by days of crying. i just can't believe the reality of it, that she is not coming back and I will never see her again.

Very sorry for your loss Marlene. We're all here for you and know all of your feelings. One day at a time as my mother always told me. - Michael
