Brain Cancer took my mom too soon

by jh

I just got married 4 days before the worst experience of my life began. My mom was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (Stage 4 Brain Cancer) She went threw brain surgery with no issues. She was "Just Peachy"never any complainants. Then the last four months were terrible, Loss Of Limbs, Unable To Comprehend Things. Then my mom passed on February 27Th. She was just gone... We were with her when she passed and It's So Surreal, She isn't here anymore.... I Am 30.... I Need My Mom, She Deserves To Be here With Us... She Was Only 60... She had so much to look forward to. I feel terrible, Sad all the time. How do people get threw such a great loss? How do you move on? h

I'm 35 and lost my mom 3 weeks aho, I know what you mean we still need her so very much! I want to feel better soon but it's just not happening, I'm taking one day at time, crying at night, but trying to adjust on not having her to talk on the phone everyday, the summer will be hard because she was always with me! I'm sure we will feel better someday, and we will have these great memories of our moms! I hope you feel better and cry if you need to!

Brain Cancer took my mom too soon
by: Doreen UK

JH I am sorry for your loss of your mom to brain cancer so quickly.
Death of a close loved one does make you feel very sad for a long time and surreal. Also feeling that "How could this happen suddenly, that you didn't have time to process your loss." You feel this UNBEARABLE pain coursing through your mind and body and you feel that you will be like this forever. You want to shake off this feeling, or perhaps take some medication to ease the pain, and there is nothing that will help. You may also feel very tired, and have a loss of MOTIVATION to do anything. This is NORMAL. and will soon pass with time. The best way forward is ONE DAY AT A TIME. This is how I got through the loss of my husband of 44yrs. He was 65yrs. and died of a deadly cancer caused by working with asbestos. A cancer that grew inside his lungs for 40yrs. before it became full blown and MALIGNANT. No preparation for losing someone when exposed to asbestos fibres that cling to the lungs like claws destroying that person. Not known as a killer substance. I lost my husband coming up to 2yrs. on May 5th. Every Saturday is the worst day of the week for me. The day of the week He died. It should be the best but turned my world upside down losing my husband. Cancer is such a CRUEL disease that few can overcome through remission or survive from.
If you find yourself struggling with grief a few sessions with a grief counsellor will take the edge off the pain. You are so Young, but also have a life to live and I hope that you can recover in time from your loss of your mom and start your own journey as a new wife. The sad part is not having our loved one's with us to continue the journey. My husband never got to have time with his 2 baby grandchildren and I guess your mom will not have this pleasure. THIS HURTS.

your dear Mom
by: Anonymous---MI

I am sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. I am sad that you, at your young age, should have to travel on this road of grief. I am a widow of 17 months, loosing my dear husband to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. He was just 65 yrs old and we were married 43 amazing yrs. Your Mom was young at age of 60; I have great faith in our Lord and Savior and trust Him in all things but I do not always understand His timing of when our dear loved ones should leave us. It is brutal and a long process to get through our grief. But I want to give you hope for the future; God has you in His keeping; He is with you in all times and He cares about all things in your life. If I did not have the Lord in my life I could not face another day. I pray that you will turn to God and keep your faith strong that He will help you in this time of sorrow. God Bless you; my prayers are with you.
