I'm with you Ted
by: Richy

I am truly sorry for your loss. My Mother died suddenly on 18th January 2012. Most of the things you wrote I too feel. Like you wrote, my Mum was actually my best friend.

I am 26 and feel a mix of shellshock, heaviness, depression and then occasional moments of denial, like she'll just come home.

I think our Mums would want us to do for ourselves what they always wanted us to do. My beautiful Mother once said (of the traumas I suffered during years of Bipolar 1 episodes) that the intensity of it all will dim over time.

She was right about that, so I ask her to reassure me it is true of this scenario.

Take care and always remember there is another dimension/side/afterlife where we can meet back up with them (I've had enough weird signs since her passing to know that now)

She loves u and want u to be strong n take gd care of yourself
by: Mei Mei

Share your pain... My mummy when on the trip on 23 Dec 2011 without any illness but just happen to fall ... I couldn't take it... cos I've been a big baby for all the 44 yrs and lived only for her... But it is a irreversible change, you must be strong... She would want you to be strong and take good care of yourself. Remember : You have taken good care of her and done what you can when she is alive. Now that she is away, you should take it that she went on a long long trip. Then the pain will be a little bit easier to live with.

Shorty - loves you
by: Anonymous

Shorty loves you. She understands your pain, but she would like nothing better if you could talk about that pain. We are all as sick as our secrets. Find a good friend, a counselor, or a minister. Write a Hello Mom letter, telling her how much you miss her, tell her what the pain is like, what is going on in your world since she's been gone, but do it in short measure, take time to eat, take time to sleep, make sure your showering, go get exercise even if it's just to the mall for groceries. You didn't say if you were married, or had a significant other. Hug them, cry on their shoulder, they want to be there for you. Remember they are hurting too. I lost my sister January 26, 2012. I have had many loses and I am finding it extremely helpful just be writing comments on the grief blog. Maybe that will help you to. I hope this helps.
