Thank you both so much for your caring thoughts.  I just found out about this place today and it seems so welcome and friendly and feels like it's the right place for me to come to for support.  Thank you so much for your kind words. 

Main / Loss of Mom going on 4 months ago

I am new to this site.  I just came across it when I was doing some searching on grief support.  I suddenly lost my Mom back on October 4, 2007.  I am 34 and she was 65.  It has been horrible!  Luckily, I have the great support of my family and friends, but I live 6 hours away from them all.  My Dad is still living, so we talk daily as well.  My Mom did have some health issues that's she's been dealing with, but they had gotten them under control 2 yrs ago, and she was real good about keeping up with going to the dr and so on.  I do good at times, but then there are times when I just break down and can't stop crying.  In fact one night, I literally cried myself to sleep.  My husband works approximately 2 1/2 hrs away, so he's only home 2 days a week as he stays in a hotel for the other 5.  I talk to him several times daily and as well as my Dad too, but my Dad lives 6 1/2 hrs away.  I also have 3 great kids that keep me busy, but there are times, especially after they are in bed, and I'm by myself, that I just sit and think and then break down and cry.  I hear that it's all part of the process, but I was ready to lose my Mom.  Not that I ever would have been ready, but it all happened so quickly and suddenly.
