Members Kimi Posted October 18, 2013 Members Report Share Posted October 18, 2013 I'm a 44-year-old who has recently lost my mom. Mom was bedridden with MS for 11 years. She has lived with me for the last 16. Mom is only 65. We took her to the hospital, where she ended up staying for 3 months. It was heartbreaking, as there were times we thought Mom would come home. We never, ever saw this coming. She had been septic, as she had before, and we just knew she would come back home...So now, I am left here without her. She has been with me nearly my whole life, and I have not just lost Mom, but my best friend, my rock, my safe place. I honestly do not know how to go forward. I have 2 younger sisters who are also struggling, but even they said they know it is harder on me since Mom lived with me basically my whole life. Holidays are coming. Birthdays are coming, including Mom's. I just don't know how people get through this. I feel like my life has ended. I feel like this can't be possible, as if somehow Mom will come back to me. I know it sounds crazy, but somewhere inside I do feel like that, even though I know it can't happen. Sorry, I am likely rambling. I just don't have many to talk to, as most of my friends still have their moms. It's a group none of us want to be in, but I am glad to meet anyone who can relate. I pray for us to one day have some kind of peace with this. It's just so hard. I'm attaching a pic of my sweet Mom on my wedding day. I miss her so, so much.
