I lost my mum 3 weeks ago she died in front of me. I miss her so much I was her carer for many years and I’m finding it all too much to deal with I wish she would come back everyday. Is anyone else feeling like this ,I got no one to talk too that is why I’ve come on a online forum hoping I’m not the only one that feels this way.

If you read through the posts in this forum you’ll see that you are not alone. Everyone has suffered a loss and are doing their best to manage life in the aftermath. Take care xx
I am sorry to hear of the recent loss of your mum. Grief is a horrible journey of emotions, it is a rollercoaster ride with good days and bad days. All of which is normal. Grief is a journey to be taken at your pace. It is not a race. Everyone has a different grief journey.

You take care
Hi there. Yes, what you are feeling is completely normal. I lost my mum at 90 in May this year. I was devastated. I never thought I would get through or would know how to cope as I am on my own and have been with her for over 50 years (all my life). I am her only daughter and she had been in a home for a year and I visited her every day. Every day is really hard. Most people will tell you in this first few weeks (or maybe a lot longer) you literally cannot get your head around it. I was constantly in tears, I couldn’t think about anything but my mum and just desperately wanted her back. I have got a little better recently. I am still thinking about her a lot during the day, but she is not invading my thoughts permanently. It has slightly eased.
I have all her lovely photos and am not as ‘desperate’ now as I was in those first 6 weeks. It will ease. It is very very hard. I visit her grave most days and make sure she has lovely flowers there.
I am also reading books from the library about grief. I think that helps. One I am reading at the moment, which I can recommend is “Beyond Goodbye”. It is a really good book. Sending big hugs. xx
Hi thank you for telling me about the loss of your mum and how you are feeling. Like you I’m a only daughter and spent so much time with mum even before she became ill. I miss her everyday and it has been hard to deal with her sudden death. I still have to have the funeral which I know is going to be hard and I’m going to have the ash’s so she will be with me still. I find the evening’s nights and first thing in the morning are the worse the house fills so lonely without her . But like most people say it will get easier in time but I will always remember her and have the memories.
Take care xx
Gem7, I know exactly how you feel, I feel the same, its so heartbreaking, lonely, it’s the worst pain ever
Hi Morgan yes the pain is awful. It’s been just over a month since I lost mum but it feels like yesterday and you think will the pain ever go away, people say it does get easier and I have stopped crying has much, but I still wish mum was here, I was told she had months to live and all the different emotions I feel like anger, bitterness, sadness are all to do with not having that time with her and it makes me feel worse because I think she should be still here.
You take care.

Our son died a month ago today. He used to phone us every morning from hospital saying wake up you sleepy heads get out of bed . We did not get a phone call that morning so at 8am I phoned him. I heard him go for the phone,then I heard bloody hell he must have dropped the phone. He told me his arm was hurting bad, he had gone through so much with them trying to get blood into him. He had bone meds and it had gone into the bone marrow. I told him we are coming even if the visiting hours were 2 to 8pm. We got there and held his hands he died at 1.50 pm. Our brave son said I am scared,I said we Are here. Then he said I got to go now ,I said where He said Death but he seemed at peace. My son was 47 with learning difficulties , mild cerebral palsy . But he was the bravest person I ever met. We loved him so much , pray for him and every body else suffering with cancer .God bless everyone who suffers
Sorry for your loss. You are not alone. I unexpectedly lost my mom only a few days ago and I’m absolutely devastated. My heart is in absolute agony and I feel like my world has been turned upside down and smashed to bits! I can’t imagine the pain ever going but I assume time will heal our broken hearts and I’m sure our lost loved ones would want us to find happiness again. My thoughts are with you
With u right there, exactly the same x
