My amazing mum

I lost my mum back In November 2016. My grief is terrible. I never in my wildest dreams thought grief could consume and over whelm like it’s doing. I wish I wasn’t alive and with my mum. I can’t help feeling she’s waiting for me. God tears are rolling down my face.

Take care,


No I have no intention of ending it. I’m just waiting for the end of my life so I can be with my mum and I know you mean we’ll but I’m not looking for outside support from strangers thank you for your help


To me grief is something I have to go through. I know it all to well but I know with certainty my mum is waiting for me I can’t describe how I know like I can’t describe how I know she’s In a place far far away from here she’s looking at me through in a puddle in water. It may sound crazy but I have known for over 5 and half years now. It comforts me
