Lost My Mom to Breast Cancer

I lost my mom July 5th, 2010 to inconclusive Breast Cancer. The cancer had spread into her bones and lungs, and she also had respiratory failure the last 24 hours she was alive. I never realized how much she did for me until a year and a half before she passed away, because she ended up in a wheel-chair and unable to do anything on her own the final two months.
I am 19 years old and struggle everyday with the loss of my mom. I still my have my dad, two brothers, sister-in-law, and my four year old nephew. I feel there was something I could do about, it but really there wasn't anything I could do. I also feel that no one knows how to talk to me anymore because they think I am a totally different person, but really I am not any different, just not as social as I used to be but I will still talk.
