I wrote the title that way because my Mother died this past June, but..because of dementia she wasn't the Mom I remember.
The final year or so of her life was just confusion and inability to communicate. Nothing like the Mom I had.
I think I never mourned for the loss of my Mom, and now when I think of her passing...I realize that she really passed more than 18 months ago and I was just tending the body.
I miss the mom I lost, not the one that died in June
Anyone else feeling this way? It is so odd.
