Struggling to breath without my mum

by Jo
(United Kingdom)

My mum died on 23rd May 2012, following a car accident. As this happened in Germany my brother and I had to fly out to see her. We met my sister at the airport and she drove us to the hospital. We got there 10 minutes too late.
I'm convinced she's going to come and see me soon or at least call me to tell me she's ok. My mum was my best friend first and my mum second. We saw each other just about everyday and did everything together.
I'm lost without her and have a constant dull pain in my chest, like someone is sitting on it. I know she's gone, yet I'm not ready to really accept the fact she's gone for good.
I take pride in knowing she was loved by so so many people, and I write letters to her, letting her know how we all all and what we are doing - especially my 11 1/2 month old son who she called 'her Jack'. She adored him.

Writing the letters helps a little, maybe just by giving me an outlet for the overwhelming amount of emotions I have.
