Hello Jackie35
So sorry about what’s happened to you.
We lost our Mum on Thursday, similar circumstances.
I lived with Mum too and her absence is overwhelming. Part of me thinks she will come back from the Hospital and that things are just temporary.
It’s good to have your friends and colleagues but as you say, it doesn’t take away the aloneness.
Words don’t help I know, but I do send compassionate thoughts and hope you are managing to take care of yourself.
