Broken heart

My heart is broken. I lost my mom 2 weeks ago. She had breast cancer for 3 years and was still being treated but she got pnemonia and died suddenly. I always knew the cancer would never be cured but I didn't expect her to die so suddenly. I thought I would have time to tell her how much I loved her and what an amazing mother she was. I am 33 years old and she was 57. I always pictured her being there with me for many more years. I talked to her on the phone several times a day and was with her several days a week. I feel so empty and lost without her. I just can't imagine my life ever being the same without her.

I know how you feel
by: Therese

It is tough to lose your mum so suddenly and so young. My mum died last July like your mum she hadn't been well but we were not expecting her to die. Grief takes its toll on you and I know how empty and awful it is. All we can do is be gentle with ourselves, do not expect too much of yourself and lean on family and friends when you need them. I find this site a great support as it is here when I need it and sometimes just reading other people's posts helps me realise that I am not alone and that others feel the same way too. I wish you all the best.

Thinking of you

My mum died suddenly too, just when I thought she was improving. The shock is awful, I do understand.

I know the feeling of injustice that our precious mothers who did so much will never see us married or hold our children.

But please remember how much she loved you. This is such a blessing and hopefully will bring you comfort.

Stay with this site. We using it understand grief and the distress of missing loved ones.

I understand

Dear friend, My condolences to you on your recent
loss of your mom.

I lost my mum recently and like you, she seemed to be improving when she passed.

It seems unjust that our wonderful moms should die. My mother will never know the joy of seeing me married or seeing my children either.

The many happy times you shared with your mom were proof of your absolute compatibility and love for each other.

I try to remember these times - I would have loved to have said goodbye to my mum too, but unfortunately we cannot plan how our loved ones leave us.

Hope you keep in contact with this site.

Wishing you increased comfort.
