Loosing mom to suicide.

Feel like I need to vent, not sure how this stuff works but I guess I just talk…
Lost my mom to suicide this week, we’re still waiting for the autopsy to come back but from the scene it looks as if she took her own life. I used to have a great relationship with my mom, as a young child she was my best friend, when she met her partner and married him that completely changed our friendship, as I was in my teens they had so many problems involving domestic abuse, I could not cope with it and moved in with my nan and grandad, so I haven’t had a proper friendship with my mom for over 8 years.
Going to a more recent time they were going through court for charges and divorcing. She hasn’t been able to handle the stress and lead to this…I haven’t spoken to her in a year and I feel awful…but she ruined our friendship and I just don’t know how to process this :sweat: feel so numb
