    never really had a problem, but when I got older we were not close, never really were, but she was the type of person who remained private. That was okay, because she raised us the same way. We all knew she was dying but she had been doing so well. It's been 11 days now since...

    Having a hard time coping this sudden loss.

    I'm suffering from PTSD. I'm taking meds for the anxiety but I'm still a mess. I know a parent dying is the natural order of life but I can't believe this happened to me. I'm lost and in such a dark place.
