Hey, I just came across your posts and I'm sorry about what you're going through. The road definitely gets rough. My mother was my best friend and I lost her when I was 18. She was only 49 years old. That was 12 years ago and it's still tough. Sometimes it feels like life with her was all a dream. On my end, it's been hard. In 2009, I was diagnosed with PTSD and depression. Sometimes I feel like I can't go on but then there are some times I do have happy moments. That's what I try to live for. If you ever need someone to talk to, don't hesitate to talk to me. Best of luck!

Hi you lost your mother too ?

Yes I did :( on August 13, 2003. I still remember the 2 days before. My mom and I went to the grocery store on August 11 and we were making plans for my birthday which is August 30 and August 12th, I remember laying on her thinking I don't know what I would do if I lost her, but I pictured that if she ever died I would be in my 40s...didn't think she would leave us at 2:00am only a few hours later.

I'm sorry . Was she sick

Nope, it just happened suddenly..

That's even worse . I know your pain . My mother died in my arms 2 years ago . I'm dreading the holidays

I'm sorry to hear that and I know your pain with the holidays. Was she sick?

Yes but she always was strong with illness . But I seriously feel like she just left me to deal with things in the world . I pretend to be happy but I'm honestly still sad until today . Everything is just so much harder to deal with . I feel very vulnerable in this world

I do know how you feel about pretending to be happy but underneath it all, you're still sad. Are you going to therapy? 6 years had passed before i sought counseling..hopefully things will be better for you.

No I haven't gone yet ... I just live everyday as it comes but I find myself crying a lot
