    Gosh my mother was murdered in 1989.

    For years I was angry. That anger crippled me deeply. It's only as of this year in feel free to let the memory and anger of her death go. I enjoy remembering who she is and forgiving her for leaving me the night she died for drugs she didn't need. I forgive her and I'm free...

    My mom just passed about 3 hours ago.

    She had been fighting COPD and CHF for years and had a quadruple bypass in November. Her heart issues had cleared up for the most part, but the COPD kept sending her to the ICU. She had developed pneumonia about two weeks ago and I had to override her decision not to go to...

    My mom passed away from breast cancer about two

    years ago. I often come to this website to read other stories as it helps me realize I am not alone. I often blame myself for not doing enough to save her. I was too busy working and never really was around the house. Looking back, I remember her looking sick or laying in bed...

    2 years ago I came out gay to my family

    and my mother disowned me. And that's sort of like losing her, because I never see her anymore only by accident.

    It's been two weeks. Mom is really gone.

    I'm amazed and shocked at how time has flown and yet every second has been felt. Counting my blessings does not help in the dark moments.. Neither does the concept of time will heal. Breathing is the only thing I can do. I don't need to be fixed because I'm not broken. This is...

      My Mother is living and breathing. I did not "traditionally" lose her as some may think when seeing "I have lost my Mom". I have lost her in contact. She sits two and a half hours east of my school, alone. This eats at my heart everyday knowing that she will not...

    Although it has been a long time

    since I lost her, I still think of her quite often. I always wish that our relationship could have been closer and that her life wouldn't have been so hard which led her to make some very wrong choices. I wish she would have really loved me and shown it so that I, as an adult...
