My mother passed in February. My siblings and I took turns caring for her here for 11 months as she declined. We cleaned out her house as much as possible before I called a halt. It got to be too much for me. This is my childhood home so my siblings respected my wish to stop. My father who’s lived with me for the last 10 years (they were separated) now wants to sell the house. I thought after so many months it would be easier, but it’s so much harder. I’m falling apart. It’s like I’m losing her all over again. Why is it even harder after almost 9 months? How did some of you get through this?
