my Mommy

by Rebecca
(Crestline, Ohio)

Yesterday November 13, 2013 I found my Mommy cold and dead on the floor in her bed room at 8:02 pm. I am 17 years old. She was happy that day, smiling and laughing, joking and having a good time. She was on the phone and went down to the basement to change clothes. My grandmother and I thought nothing of it and kept on with what we were doing. I went downstairs to tell my Mommy that I was going to take a shower and I found her dead on the floor, face blue and cold. She had her hand up like she was talking on the phone. To my dismay they had simply hung up when my Mommy didn't answer. I feel they should have done something...but how could they have known right? I don't know how to feel, knowing my Mommy, the person I looked up to the most is gone.

my Mommy
by: Doreen UK

Rebecca I am so sorry for your loss of your mom to a sudden death, especially at this time of the year. It is early days and to process the death of a close loved one is difficult. the first few days to weeks are the worst. You are so young and to lose your mom at such a young age is difficult. If you have other family try and stay close and share the difficulties around your loss. don't isolate yourself with your grief. Express this for however long you feel the need to cry. grief can't be forced. It happens when it will and often at inconvenient times and places. I used to cry on the bus, the train, the bank, the supermarket. But you will always feel better after a good cry till the next time it happens all over again. then slowly healing takes place in us, and we learn to live on each day. the best way to cope with death is to TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME. This is what I did having learned this on this site. It makes a tremendous difference. I know how you will be feeling today. Perhaps a little disoriented and wondering if this really happened. It will feel surreal as if you are dreaming and will wake up to find it didn't happen. Then the reality of it all sets in. We have all been there and these are the most difficult days ahead. But if you take one day at a time and just focus on that day it helps. Life will get easier with time and you will learn to live again. Life will never be the same again, but you will learn to put meaning again into your life. for me also life is lonely and empty. Each day brings new trials we have to overcome. May God comfort you and your family at this difficult time and give you His Peace.
