Members leahok Posted April 11, 2008 Members Report Share Posted April 11, 2008 ok. My mother died when I was 10. I am 24 now. I don't really like to talk about my feelings, so I never really felt like I wanted to talk about anything related to my mother. Over the past several months, I have been working through some "mom stuff" for the first time, which has been facilitated largely by writing down my own story and now doing a research paper on related topics. So: the subject of my paper is"Death culture in the US and the causes and connections of self destructive behavior in adult women who experienced the death of a parent while under the age of 25."Something happened when I was writing all of this stuff down for the first time. Well, a few things...I realized that several of my close friends have one or more parents who has/have died. Secondly, I noticed the distinction between the self-destructive behaviors we all exhibit much more intensely than our other peers.This got me to thinking about why this could be and if it was even true outside my circle. I want to talk to adult women who experienced the death of a parent in childhood or early adulthood (under age 25) who would be willing to talk to me about the repercussions of this experience in adulthood. If anyone would be willing to help me, I would appreciate it very much.thank you,Leah Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
