    Hi I'm new here today, my mom has been gone almost 2 years.i have not had much support or chance to grieve, and my life is all screwed up. Just today I felt strongly that a lot of my problems are coming from my problems with grief. I don't have any one to talk to so I'm trying this out

    Hi. My mom has been gone now one month. It seems like two years! I don't think it is something we will ever get over completely. But rather one day at a time. I pray and ask God for strength. Do what you need to grieve. Know that there are others wishing you well and going through the same thing. Be encouraged.

    I lost my mom a month ago this past friday! She was my best friend. She cared so deeply for all of my children but had a very special bond with my middle child who is handicapped. I find myself seeing pics or commericals of things she liked or tv shows she watched and i just cant contain myself.
    IS THIS NORMAL? i'm 44 yrs old and she was 66. I'm thinking gosh i must look like a child crying so much but i can't help it! I miss her dearly and am so lost! I find myself almost calling her to ask how shes doin or telling her about something that happened.

    There is no normalcy. Whatever you have to do to come to some realization for you.. My mom's number has been disconnected but I still have her name and picture in my phone. Can't delete it. Yesterday my sister sent me an older pic of my mom and I cried. It has been one month and a week since she has passed. Be encouraged.

    This morning I called my mom's phone. I knew the number was disconnected but I just had the strong urge to call. Still at times unbelievable to me. My dear mother is gone !

    Wow five days ago! I know you are probably feeling very lost. When it was five days for me I thought I was loosing my mind. I pray that a higher power ( which is God for me) gives you the strength to go on. You can lean on me. My deepest sympathy.
