Hi Jean. First of all can I say how terribly sorry I am for your loss, it sounds like you've been through Hell lately, I'm so sorry. Yet, you've found the courage to talk about how you're feeling, that's a start so I commend you for that, well done :) Please don't blame yourself for your mother's injuries ("If I had just been a little quicker"), there was nothing you could have done and if you torture yourself over it you'll just make yourself ill. The fact that you looked after your mother before and after her fall shows how much you loved her so you shouldn't beat yourself up over her accident. Also, the fact that you respected her wishes with regards to the feeding tube and how you spent every day with her shows how you felt about her, she obviously meant the world to you. I know it sounds cliched, but she really has gone to a better place now that she's not in the pain you described.

I guess what I'm trying to say is don't blame yourself for anything, you showed how much you loved your mother with how you looked after her. Also, you're going through a difficult time at the minute so find your best friends and talk to them about how you feel, it'll help, it did with me. Please also speak to a trained medical professional as they can help immensely. The nurse I spoke to has made me feel so much better.

Take care, Rhys x
