I lost my Mom 4 weeks ago. I cry everyday. I never knew this could hurt so much, so deep and so fully. I miss and love her so much. I honor her by continuing to live and love, she would be so sad to think she caused me to stop living and loving. We won't ever get pass this great loss, but with God's help we will get through it. I wish you all what I wish for myself and that is a healing, an acceptance and loving memories.

my mother
by: Anonymous

My mother had Alzheimer severely for the last 2and a half years. She died 3 weeks ago ,I was with her when she died with her head in my arms , I had just told her to close her eyes and to go to sleep ; because dad and I both loved her very much. My father has Alzheimers too , and I'm having a very hard time of keep explaining it to him every other time, I seem to break down . I have no brothers or sisters to talk too. My youngest son of 34 years of age thinks I should get over it quickly , since my mother was so weak and frail. I catch my self crying several times aday and I feel like someone is putting a knife thru my heart. I have a loving husband; but I can't get over the hurt. I loved my mother very much ,and I'm doing alot of praying and reading my Bible daily for support.

It is a different day
by: Tina in Chicago

It is now over three months since I lost my Mom. I am attempting to socialize. I have good and bad days. No one who has not experienced what we have can ever understand it, although some do try. There is no getting over it!!! We don't just "bounce back" from such a loss. I have done some serious housekeeping with my life. I will only have people in my life that celebrate me and allow me to celebrate them. The loss of my Mom taught me just how short life is. I am not going to waste a moment with insensitive speech or lack of compassion and patience for us and what we go through every day. Let's love and support each other here and wherever we find us. Let's just get through to the other side of grief as best we can. God Loves us all

I know how you feel. I lost my mom about a month ago. I was the one the found her dead. Hopefully you were not the one who found her. I know it leaves a big gap in your life. But I promise you life gets better. You just have to live on with your life. That's all you can do. Hopefully things go well with you. I'm so sorry for your lost.

First of all I would like to say that I am very sorry for your loss.
I am so grateful for these websites and people like you sharing your heart and feelings with others who have just gone through the same experience. I lost my mom as well, it will be 4 weeks next Monday. She went to sleep Sunday night and never got up the next morning. I feel what you feel and understand you a 150%. Just like you I am trying to live and love one day at a time just like my mom even when her life was not perfect. She left me with a great lesson and that is that no matter what, life does go on. She too wouldn't want me to stop living and loving. That was what she was all about. I was overwhelmed with the amount of people that came to the mournings and shared with me what my mom meant to them, she touched the lives of so many people including myself. She even left us a few notes in a book she would read on a daily basis on some of her ideas of how to live. I picked up the book the day she passed and I couldn't believe my eyes when I read the stuff that she wrote on the back of the cover. Your mom will never really die as long as you keep her memories alive in your heart and soul. That's what I do on a daily basis and I still talk to her all the time. She's never truly gone. She will continue to live in you. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. May God bless you, Giovanni

We Do Survive
by: TrishJ

I too live in the Chicago area. My husband died on December 3, 2010. He was on the cardiac transplant list through the University of Chicago (wonderful hospital). God had other plans for him.
There is a quote by Sigmund Freud on this website. It states that though the acute pain of mourning does subside and we go on there is a part of us that will forever remain inconsolable. This is so true. We do eventually learn to live with our pain and find a day where the memories bring smiles to our faces.
We make it with God's help. Blessings to you.
