Members Sljamj4809 Posted December 15, 2013 Members Report Share Posted December 15, 2013 I lost my mother, my light on November 21st 2013. She was only 55 and I never thought for a moment in my life that I would have to bury my mother when I was 28. This is taking me to a place of depression that I just can't handle. Mom had been living in a nursing home for about two years after a series of strokes due to her unmanaged blood pressure. She got lucky though as she was still able to walk and do most things for herself...but she still needed 24 hr care for medications and mental health problems. She had gotten a line put in 3 months before her passing to start dialysis. For her being in a nursing home she was doing rather well...no big life threatening health problems. Then on the 21st I woke up to three voicemails from the nursing home saying I needed to call them it was an emergency. I thought maybe her sugar dropped and they were taking her to the hospital. But when I called they told me mom was unresponsive...she had passed. I hung up the phone and lost it. I couldn't breath, couldn't speak. What just happened? We're they serious? I was the first to find out, so I had to call everyone and tell them my mom died. Unreal, not right. They think my mom had a stroke in her sleep. One week after her passing was Thanksgiving....didn't feel like even getting out of bed. For the sake of my daughter and husband I did and I made dinner...mom would have wanted that. My husband tries to help, but he has not lost a parent so he just doesn't get it. I don't know what to do, what to think. I feel so lost, so alone. This is so much, almost too much. I can't seem to get it together. I buried my mom two days before thanksgiving....I feel so lost Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
