MOTHER'S DAY WITHOUT MY PRECIOUS MUM
by Heartbroken daughter
I have survived my mum's birthday and Christmas for the first time. These anniversaries were terrible - how do I cope with Mother's Day ?
My mum and I were so devoted. We had both had terrible experiences with men. I had a marriage where I was emotionally abused - my mother had been left destitute when she was a child and then as an adult because of gambling addictions by her father and brother.
When mum was alive I was never lonely. We laughed, cried and shared so much together. I never managed to say goodbye to her (she was in a coma for four days)
Counselling failed to comfort me. I have friends who dont really understand as they have relatives who care about them. They make time for me when it suits them.
I cry every time I pass a card day shop.
Thank you for listening.
