Find Care & Housing
I'm so sorry. Please don't feel like you need to leave this forum. Your experiences in caregiving for your mom will be valuable for others just starting out on this journey. Many forum members have also experienced losses and might be able to support you as you grieve.

I do think a grief support group in your area might be a really big help. The internet is great, but looking into someone's eyes and sharing your emotions is very healing. Check your local hospital or churches to find one.

I am sorry for your loss. I know how acutely you must feel this. My Mom passed almost 3 years ago.

I miss her. Sometimes the memories overwhelm me. Sometimes the guilt gets to me too. I cannot help but wonder in those first months if there was something I could have done, should have done, maybe shouldn’t have done.
over time you learn to hold onto the best and let the rest go.

i was the caregiver for both my parents. My father passed almost 4 years ago. Coming here saved my sanity. I still come here a lot. I hope to help others...sort of paying it back,

not a day goes by that I don’t think of Mom. We were always close. I am traveling the US in an RV....this was her dream too, I am always pointing out interesting things to her I see on the road.

I miss her, I always will.

Sorry about your loss. May you be comforted.

My Mom passed six years ago. I still become emotional about it. But I know she is in a better place.

My mom passed away too. I am now an orphan. My dad passed away from cancer in the 1990's, mom will be 2 years this year. It is hard. I stopped at a stop light, and a horrible vision of a hospital stay she had, just appeared for no reason... My Friend calls it PTSD... Well, she has it, and says anything can trigger it... Wonderful..

Chalk me up! I guess I have it... Losing a loved one is usually never great news, right? And there really is NO CERTAIN TIME TO STOP GRIEVING. It slowly dissipates, so you can actually feel okay with it, and to try to start living again.
At times it only comes in spurts where you can fill that void for a bit.
BUT JUST KNOW THIS;;;; DEATH IS OKAY.!! YOUR LOVED ONES ARE GONE. THEY ARE NOT HERE SUFFERING, BUT THEY CERTAINLY GET OUR ATTENTION IF YOU ARE OPEN...My dad, the atheist, was around a long time. So glad,,, Thank You Dad...
Mom never liked to see someone upset... and the way she passed, and the few months prior , I was upset about her declining...,,She knows, and I know. she is bettter where she is now,,, Thank You God!!
The tree of lemons, she gave me over 25 years ago,is wonderul. So I like to tell the story of mom lemon gift to me..My friend on the other side of the country says her friends love them send more . That makes me happy.
Well, GN

I’m very sorry for the loss of your mother. Grieving.com is an option. I’ve not used it myself but our housebound neighbor says he has joined after the loss of his parents and that it has helped him. Again, my condolences. I wish you comfort and peace in the days ahead.
