I have been writing about the Queen coming just to (visit) & I have been taking care of mom for 2 yrs. It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this. Mom has been my life for 2 yrs & now she is dying . I am here with her now but hospice says death is immimnent within 48hrs. Her body Is shutting down. My mother has been my (life ) I can't imagine it without her. When I moved in to take care of her my friends became her friends. I always included her no matter what. Recently moms dog died she had her 8 yrs . From than on it has been downhill. I know I have to go on (BUT HOW ) ???? I am 56 yrs old I never married no children. Just (great friends ) I wanted a career more than anything, But now I will be LOST! Please tell me how to go on without her. I have a grevience councelor but I just can't see how they can help, (been there done that with dad. I am crying as I write this but it does help to write how i feel.
