Nickie, my condolences on the loss of your mom and your BFF. May God give you the strength & the courage to grieve this loss but know that you'll be reunited with your dear mom again one day. Sending you a hug and a prayer for peace.
Once it takes hold in a community, there’s no stopping it. We mostly stay home, but I’m retired and my h works part time from home.
My boss was my best friend, he was like sibling I never had. I had worked for him for over 10 years, and loved going into work. My boss thought the scientists didn't know what they were talking about, so he wasn't taking the virus seriously. At least he allowed me to work from home starting in March since I was taking this very seriously.
Back in May I get a call from my boss, he had called 911 and was going to the hospital, three days later he was gone, died from covid-19. I was both sad and angry. Angry because this could have been prevented :(
You will not get over the loss of your mom quickly, nor will I my husband. And we just have to accept that however long it takes us, it's ok. There is no time frame on how long we get to grieve someone we loved, we can take as long as we need. So just take one day at a time, and try to focus on the many wonderful things about your mom(as I will my husband)and allow yourself the space needed to grieve your best friend.
Praying for God's peace and comfort in the days, weeks and months ahead.
