    It is now Thursday. I still cannot think. I don't really feel either. I picked up my cousin from the airport this morning. She is willing to help me with whatever I wish. She keeps asking what I would like to do. I can only answer, "I don't know." I have shown her the chaos I...

    She Died When I Was 5

    So as this group states,

    I lost my mother back in Feb 2012. It was a sudden thing and it was extremely difficult. I still think about her all the time, she wasn't the easiest woman to get along with, but she was mine and that's what means the most. The Following Lyrics, pretty much sums everything...

    10 years since I lost her. She was my best friend. I can't believe its already been almost 10 years. I was only 12 when that drunk driver took you away from me... away from us. Life changed so much the day you were taken from me. I still miss you every single day. Your hugs...

    I'm to young... I never thought this would happen. I thought she would see me make an accomplishment of myself. I'm broken. My chest hurts. I went to work today, like any other day. This morning wasn't so great. It started out bad. My work pants were still wet, my mom kept...

    Physically she's still here (sometimes)

    but mentally...she's long gone. She stopped being my mother awhile ago and now she's just...not here. She's not here to love me or guide me or anything and it hurts. She says she feels like an awful mother but I thought she was perfect before this happened. She was my best...

    I lost her when i was 7,

    that was 8 years ago. It really doesn't seem like it's been that long since i heard her voice or since i was safely wrapped in her arms. I lost her to drugs. I honestly still don't understand how any mother could choose drugs and her life over her children. Despite her bad...

    I lost my mother when I was just one,

    and yesterday I found a video of my grandmother's 60th birthday party. It was the first time I ever heard her voice and I don't even know how to feel, it doesn't feel real, I still feels so fake to me, it doesn't feel like her, and I have absolutely no idea who she even is.

    Losing my Mother was not something

    that happened instantlly, like it did with my daughter. For my mother, I watched for years, watching her slowly slipping away, slowly leaving me. I watched her suffer for years on end, and in the end, she couldn’t handle it anymore. She couldn’t fight the cancer anymore...
