Hi i am new to this forum, i tragically lost my mum on December 4th due to a routine operation going wrong she was only 64! Words cannot express how upset, heartbroken, angry etc that i feel right now. I am only 35 and have two young children and since her passing i have been kept busy with helping and supporting my dad and also keeping family life going at home during the christmas period but now we are into the new year and i have gone back to work i feel as sense of overwhelming grief as i sit at my desk at home. Realisation has just kicked in that i have lost my closest best friend in life and that she had so much more to live for!
