Grief and healing

by Gary

My mom died at age 87 6 months ago. I was crushed and very unhappy. I thought I was going crazy and felt I would never be the same. I read alot on grief, talked to close friends and attended a grief support group. I feel much better now and I'm confident I'm on the road to recovery. I thank this site for all the help and encouragement it gave me. I'll pray for your happiness.

Lost my mom over 6 months ago
by: Ellen

I lost my mom, at age 92 on 1/13/12. She was my best friend, and buddy. I took care of her for 4 and 1/2 years after she broke her hip.
Some days I feel like I am doing OK, other not so good at all.
At the moment I feel a sthough it just happened and I am going insane.
People say, ahh she had 92 beautiful years.YEAH, but so what, it wa smy mom, and I miss her. It just seems at time still overwhelming that she is no longer on this planet.
Personal items, that were hers, and so important to her, are suddenly ( mine) Shakes head!

Still sad after 6 years.
by: Anonymous

I feel the same way. I lost mine at 85 on 10/16/05 and I still have not gotten over it. Some days are better than others but some are so bad, its as if it just happened. She was a loving, patient person who always put herself last. She suffered with pain from pancreatic cancer that was misdiagnosed. Every day I wish I could have her back. Sometimes the sadness is overwhelming.

Life never to be the same
by: Anonymous

Lost my mom 11/3/11 unexpectedly. Doing her usual daily routine, and an apparent abdominal aneurysm that took her life. Fifteen minutes after I got home she fell and my brother and I tried to resuscitate her and kept her alive long enough for paramedics and the hospital. Hour and a half later she was gone. I have lived with my mom for 53 years, never leaving her after my dad passed away 36 years ago. She too was my life. I am so depressed and sad. Not wanting to accept it eventhough I know she is not coming back. I crave to hold her and touch her. She was the world to me. She was 87 and gave all her life, not wanting anything in return. I don't know if life will ever be the same. I know she would want me to be happy, but I can't, not now. So how do you let that bond go. She is my precious angel and I just hope she knew and knows how much I loved her all my life.

I just lost my mom 8 months ago
by: Angelina

I am sorry to read about your loss too. I lost my mom 8 months ago on March 16, 2011. I feel the same way and it has seemed to get harder not easier, especially with the holidays coming up. I hope it gets easier for you and your family.

I miss my mum every day
by: Anonymous

My beautiful, loving mother died 7 months ago. At first I was numb, then very sad and then I seemed to be able to cope with it. Now in the last 2 months, I feel completely devastated and cant stop crying every day, I think I am finally realising the true magnitude of the loss and right now it just feels unbearable. I think people expect me to be 'over it' more by now, so I never really talk about it except to my sister, who feels the same as me. I wonder if I will ever feel happy again. I loved her more than anything in the whole world.
