Moving forward without Mom

8 months on and still feel so lost without mom. Spent a lot of time with her and chatting during the day every day. Feel like I cant move on in my life without her. Miss her so much.

Hi @Bestie18 I feel very much the same :disappointed: It’s also been almost 8 months for me since my Mum passed. I miss her constantly every day. It’s like you said, we used to chat all the time, so it’s such a huge void without her now. It is so hard to move forward, but we have no choice. We can just take things one day at a time. Here if you ever want to chat x

Hi

Thank you for offering to chat. True, we don’t have any choice and have to take one day at a time. Just so hard. Would have been moms birthday tomorrow. We went to Bewdley last year then a garden centre. Feel like i will always feel this sadness inside, miss her so much x

Hi, I lost my mum back in January. I moved to northern Ireland and didn’t visit that much but called her almost everyday. Was due to fly over to visit last October but caught COVID and was in hospital. I booked a flight for early Jan just a few days after my birthday. I called her on the Tuesday evening to tell I I couldn’t wait to see her in a few hours. My dad called me at 6am the next morning to tell me she had died. I was just a few hours too late to hug her again. I miss her so much,not a day goes by that I don’t get upset. I can’t talk to anyone about this especially my wife because I would break down and I can’t let people see me like that. I honestly feel the same as you, I just don’t know what to do. Sorry, I can’t tell you everything will be ok or get better because I don’t know. Apologies for adding this reply. I’m just lost.

Hi

So sorry for your loss, can imagine how you are feeling. The emptiness we feel is hard to explain isn’t it. Try not to bottle your emotions as its okay to feel upset including to have a cry if you need too. I find that some prople avoid talking about your loss, don’t know what to say etc. I find it helps to talk about mom. Here if you need to chat. Take care and take one day at a time

Thank you. And again sorry for dumping all this on you.

No need to apologise. This is what Sue Ryder website is about to reach out to people that are grieving and its helps to chat to people that are grieving too going through the different emotions.
Please do not apologise, you obviously needed support just like I do

Thank you.
