My mom passed away this December, right before Christmas. It was a freak accident. I talked to her every day for the last 3 years and she was my saving grace and my best friend. She had mental health issues and a problem with alcohol so growing up with her had been a struggle. The last few years though, she was there for me unconditionally. She was the only person in my life who I could tell all my secrets to and who would answer my call any time of the day or night. We had been in a fight when she died and we hadn’t talked in a few weeks. I can’t believe that she is gone. I will never get to call her again and she will never get to see me accomplish milestones in my life. I’m only 22 and I feel so empty and angry. I can’t talk to my siblings about it or to friends because they seem uncomfortable. I’ve been going to therapy every week but I feel like my grief is just getting worse.
