Members mcp_sb Posted March 6, 2013 Members Report Share Posted March 6, 2013 Hi all,I'm new to this forum. My mother passed away on January 12, and I have found that most of the people in my life have stopped talking about it. But I need to still talk about it. I am seeing a counselor but it's not enough.My mother was 58 and healthy. She suffered a stroke out of nowhere in late September 2012. A week after the stroke, I found out I was pregnant with my first child. They told us she would recover, and she was improving for 6 weeks. We were all so grateful for our "near miss," and I was beyond relieved that my child would still have a grandmother.Then, right before Thanksgiving, she got very suddenly sick and went to the ER, where they discovered an aggressive, inoperable glioblastoma. There was nothing to be done, and they gave her 3-9 months. I live in CA and she lived in NH, so I flew out for 5 weeks to help my sister care for her. My mom passed away 2 weeks after I had to go back home, just under 2 months from her terminal diagnosis.I'm now 6 months pregnant and I'm still in disbelief that she's gone. Sometimes I'm in denial that it ever happened, sometimes I'm so angry because she was so young and it's not fair. Our relationship wasn't perfect, but my family is a mess and she was the one person who was always kind and positive. Very few of my friends have been through anything like this, and the rest of my family has talked far less since it happened. I just feel sort of lost and alone. I never even conceived of being motherless at 33, or having my first child without her. Anyway, I am hoping to find some support here. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
