My Mom was very sick throughout my life. I feared losing her from an early age. I always knew she'd be my biggest heartache. I'm sitting here crying tonight. The grief just has its way with me. Mom passed September 27th of last year. I fear the 1 year mark. My heart has never been more shattered. I'm seeing a counselor, but I feel I need something more.

Profile Information

About Me:
I took care of first my Dad, then Mom and Dad, then just Mom after Dad passed, for a total of ten years. I found I am a skilled advocate, and other good things about myself, over these ten years. I read a lot- it's the perfect, pleasurable escape. I am disabled with mental health issues, so I don't work anymore. I like to keep a sense of humor about things, even if its gallows humor. And I love animals. Am currently sharing my life with 2 adorable, very unique cats. (Not that cats aren't unique to begin wth, lol).
About my Loss:
I am grieving Mom and Dad. However, others I've lost over the years come in and out of my field of grief. Dad had Alzheimer's for 16 years (early onset) and Mom had an unbelievable amount of health problrms. In the end, it was the Emphesema with chronic pneumonia that took her life. I always took my grief to her. Of course I have friends who understand, but I feel like I need something more.

I really only have only my brother as far as family goes. I do have a cousin I'd like to be closer with. Haven't talked to Mom's side of the family in years. I fear losing my brother and being all alone.

Have you considered a counselor? I have one and I see her every week. It's good to have that outlet.

My grief seems to come in waves now. I'll do ok for a day or two, then bam! It smashes into me. I have physical pain. I have those nights where I just cry. Don't think i could possibly have any tears left. And it brings the grief over my Dad up harder again.

I'm going to try and post this now. Hopefully it will work.

Late February is a challenging time of year for me.  Jen’s birthday is the 23rd and serves as an annual reminder of all of the potential that was lost…Her’s (mainly), mine, the world’s honestly.  This year she would be 52…It is increasingly hard to imagine, through all of the iterations possible, what she could have become, what was to be her (significant) impact on the world.That being said, things, emotions, have largely settled down since I committed a potential version of what could have…See More
