lost my mom to illness
by Bianca Walker
im 17 i loss my mom to an illness she had since i was a baby. im the only child.she became was paralyzed my 8th grade year. we was forced to move in with my grandparents. in november she had her 8th brain surgery and she also suffered from silent seizures. she had a tube put in her spine and she had a bone disease. one night i was at my best friend house and i decided to come home because i got tired of sitting at my friends. so i came home were me and my cousin found my mom slumpt over in her hospital bed. at first we thought she was just playing and ignoring us like she always do. but as i got close and seen the look on her face. i knew she was not playing i ran outside and i had this feeling hit me. i dont really remember anything after that but i was hard because my mom was my best friend and she was all i had.i now live with my grandparents and i sit and watch my grandmother cry every day. its very hard to try to stay strong for everybody while you feel alone and invisible all the time. im now in my senior year and i am having a hard time without my bestfriend being here to help my celebrate this great year.
