Still Trying To Adjust Without Mom!
My mother has been gone for almost a year and a half and I am still reeling from her loss. I have been through numerous counseling sessions and on medications, but that only helps so much. What bothers me the most is that I seem to be the only one in my immediate family that has issues with her loss. My father has moved on and is in a serious relationship. He never talks about her and I feel like he already forgot about her. My brother is in a serious relationship and seems to be doing fine without her. Me, I can't get over her death and think about her all the time. I gained weight and haven't been sleeping well. I would think after a year and a half and with all the counseling I have received, I would be moving on with my life, but I feel like I'm at a standstill. One problem is that my mother is buried in another state and I haven't been able to visit her grave as much as I have wanted to. I feel jealous when I see mothers and daughters together. Once I was in an elevator when a young woman was fighting with her mother over the phone. I wanted to throttle her.
Why am I having so much trouble moving on with my life?
