I am sorry i dont know how to do what you asked. but im lost and dont want to do this alone. i dont even know if u will get this or how i can get back to it. my name is claudia and i lost my momm. it was 3yrs ago,i think. yeah 08. i feel like im flying thru all them stages. all the time. i try to not let it out to others. but its making my crazy. complicated. i sometimes think im doing it to myself. cause i think soooo much. and i try to bury it, right from start. i stayed to long in stage 1. i worry alittle cause some things that go thru my...idk my grief. i dont want to be sick or get sick. i like myself. thats not to say i like what ive done or will do. i dont ever feel anxiety sxs. i know im depressceded. i delayed the healing prosses too long. and i did that by trying to replace her, the love, the void. and its a very bad road. as im trying to pull myself together i can recognize things. like god there is so much. my faith is totally shaken. im scared. im alone, inside not outside. i know i have to let go. i get it. i know it will get easier in time. i can feel it. but my mind is not moving forward enough. n ur right noone knows what to do n i dont want to hear get over it, its been a long time, yes i know all that. several things clashed at once and im trying to sort it all out. i write alot. its all i have since my mom passed. i closed down. falling in love for the first time and not knowing if its real or replaced. but it feels the same in strength. my mom was always who i went to with my inner thoughts n feelings. some things i did not tell n it was i thought to protect me, but when she passed idk i felt very ashamed. and ashamed of where my life was. i felt she could see everything. that ment she knew my turmoil in everything including her. so now imagine, i believed in god, heaven, spirits, purgatory. long stories, but mom always said to go to that john guy so she could talk to me. if im to believe she can talk to me, can she see me. feel me. oh god no. that totured me for 3 yrs. just this summer i started to pull my headaround. now a whole lot of things do not make sence. but i cant accept that as her fait nor can i accept that i cant let her go leving me the one keeping her over n in purgatory. or whatever its. then theres coming to terms with my stepfather. my mom was the sorce, accidentally of our problems. and it has followed in her death. but i know i have to stop it. if u believe in solemates, as i did, this is what my mom believed she was to him n he says to her. now imagine he starts lookinsoon after. i think to myself, omg how does thst work. i wish i knew how to use the puntuation keys. sorry. anyway, he has to move on and there is nothing wrong in theroy of him finding another mate. as a matter of fact, he may not have a choice. thats the laws of nature. so now there is no way in hell my mom is gonna be sitting there when he comes with another. or does she go to her first. no. that changes too much. idk. see mom was always there when needed. it could be months or yrs inbtwn. but she was there to talk it thru. now i find myself in these waves of grief its like putting ur foot in water n making ripples. so i try to not disturb the water. not good. crisis comes today n cycles r out of control. i knew i had to reach out. i kept telling myself someone b4 u has gone down the same road n wrote about it. i had to find help somewhere. sometimes its just writing it, some will need someone to snap me into reality. i finally have words for the things ive been feeling, the shock, lasted long, i think cause i was on effexor n that kind of stops u from feeling. or in my case crying. i dont feel i have the right to be angry, i got to say mt peace, it was a relief, i am being very selfish. the isolation, the midlife crisis. i fig it was gonna be life altering. i was scared at my new outlook for lack of a better word. and the lonelyness. omg it is horrific... whew. i dont feel ready. im the matriarc. i dont have the knowlege yet nor anyone to go to. ya know that person that listens, understands, and accepts ur choices no matter how badddly hey messed u up. then theres the hings said to me in confidence n death bed promices. im so sorry for the writing errors n spelling. its probably the one thing that bothers me. stops me from interacting in the computer world. i let it pass me by. that whole death thing is a ... i def had my death fig if my stomach dont get me first. ok now i feel like a total fool an idiot. but i have to do something. im not fixing on my own. its very confusing. idk what to do now. please let it go thru n not be erased.

Help is so close
by: Tina in Chicago

I feel you reaching out, trying to make sense of it all. We can't do this by ourselves. Please get you a Bible and begin to read it, you can even ready one on line and don't stop reading and thinking about the words and believing that God loves you. God keeps his promises, all you have to do is ask and believe. God tells us it will get better. In the meantime we have got go trust him. Find you a church to visit. Share your pain here with others we understand. We are all in the same boat. Don't feel ashamed of your grief, talk about it to friends, family, anyone; but don't try to hold it in. I wish I could reach out and hug you right now CONSIDER THIS RESPONSE AS A GREAT BIG HUG!!!

God Bless and comfort you

As M Mack stated, try to get some help somewhere. I might add, look for a local bereavement group, I found that has helped me. I've met other people who have/are going thru the same scenario as myself and can relate. Good luck.

I see you are confused and reaching out for help to sort out a lot of challenges. I am not a professional but I can tell you that there are services, churches that offer counseling and therapy for free. Sometimes, we need to put our life in order and need help. Don't be afraid to ask and you shouldn't be ashamed. We are all Gods creatures and everyone of us has the light of love within us. You need to love yourself first, then recognize good in others.

Your mom is at peace and you need to find a balance to go forward with your life. The deeper you love the greater the grief. Everyone on this site has lost loves, family and friends. Its painful but we need to go on, support each other and give it our best.

Please get some help so that you will find comfort. Writing is good but the interaction of a group or one on one is powerful. Take care Claudia and you have my prayers.
