My mom passed away at the end of January this year of Espohagal cancer. I am in so much emotional pain right now. Silent tears are streaming down my face, and my boyfriend, who is sitting on the other end of this couch hasn't even noticed. I wish he would motivate me more and challenge me and ask the tough questions. But he's too afraid. I miss my mom so much.

I lost my mom when I was 7, she passed after giving birth to my little sister . I'm 15 now but it's still hard sometimes without her . Just know that she has no more worry or pain now

Wow. Thank you for sharing that with me. It's nice to know that I'm not alone. I feel like everyone takes for granted that they have a mom and don't realize some people actually don't..

I'm sorry for your loss.

Ur bf likely doesn't know how to comfort someone with such a devastating loss. Be patient and maybe communicate your needs to him. Tell him u may have some break downs and that u need him near.

I appreciate your comment. I think you're right that he has no idea what I'm going though even though he wants to know she that he can help me. I am finding it hard to communicate with him because I just don't know the words. I don't think there are any English words for the feelings I am feeling.

Tell him that . What u just said.
Then find a grief counsellor too who can assist u in understanding ur feelings . I lost my mom too 2 years ago and had very little support except for my gfs . U need to talk but it can't only be on ur bfs shoulders either . :)

I have actually been looking for a grief counsellor but I just can't seem to find a good one like my sister seems to have found. Mine keep having to switch on me. It's annoying. I have another person at a different place tomorrow so I will give that a try. I don't want to put it all on my boyfriend. It wouldn't be fair of me.

I know how you feel I just lost my mom and think of her and miss her so ,uch
