Lesley - I am so sorry to hear that you lost your mum. I too lost my mum. She died on the 5th March this year. Since then I seem to be numb with shock. The loss is almost indescribable and I can’t bear to think about a future without her. I cared for her in the last few months after she was diagnosed with cancer and it broke my heart to see her decline.
If it is any very small help - the only thing that is helping me is going outside and getting fresh air and trying to spend time with other people. It doesn’t take the pain away - just makes it a little more bearable for a while.
This site is great - because you realise that there are people out there who are willing to listen and to care. Stay strong.
