I lost my mom 2 weeks ago. A week after her 86th birthday, Now some of you will say --- wow she lived a long life, but for me just not long enough. I have been my mother's caretaker for 30 years and the past 2 the doctors told us she only had 2 months to live She sure showed them. I am finding it difficult to grieve mostly due to the fact that the one person to support, love and hold me when i cried is no longer here. How can I let me grief out when I don't think I can put it away to go to work, go food shopping and just continue to put one foot in front of the other?
I built my life around her and now that she is gone - who am i? I just don't know my place in the world anymore.
