GRIEF,DESPAIR AND LONELINESS
by grief broken daughter
I have just celebrated my birthday - the first one without my wonderful mom. I dread Christmas and other holidays.
My mom and I were left without family and only with each other. Partly because of gambling addiction in the family and also because of premature deaths. Most of mom's family died young from heart disease.
How do I go on without her ? The pain gets worse grief councilors advice but do not appreciate the impact when you have no other close relatives.
We were kindred spirits. When she was alive no matter what life was worth living.
I just wish I could have her back for five minutes to tell her how I loved her. She died in a coma.
