Lost my Mom over 40 years ago - How do I move on?


Recommended Posts

I lost my mother suddenly on New Year's Day 1979 when I was 2 years old. All these years, and I have never had any closure. I feel like I don't know who I am or where I came from. Now at 44, I feel like I can finally identify some of the complicated grief issues I think I have been dealing with all my life. However, because I am finally to that point, my marriage is falling apart. I feel like no one understands what this has been like. All the research I have done on grief fails to address my specific situation. I can't even find a grief counselor in my area. I can't find a grief group that doesn't focus on recent losses and getting through all of the "firsts" after a loss. There is so much grief and anger that fill those emotional buckets. They need dumping out so I can finally live my life and become the living legacy I believe I need to be for my mother. I am not sure where else to go. Thanks for reading.
