Momma is my best friend( Am sorry i can't bring myself to speak of her in the past tense). She left on July 13th, 2020 at 7.03am. The doctors wrote 'Septic Shock' as the reason for her going. I don't know how to even begin to understand it. I don't know how to go on. I lived for my mother. I have lost all focus, all purpose. many times, all i can think about is, i wish i could go too, just to escape the pain of not being able to see her, touch her.

I'm so sorry. I just lost my mom this month also. It is so much to take in and adjust to the idea.

Hope you are doing better.

I lost my mother as well in June. I joined a bereavement group conducted by the VNA. I also sought professional counseling. Through this process, I was able to gain a lot of insight and material to help me go through this grief. I have my good days and bad. It might help to find a bereavement group in your area to help you through your grief journey. I do know that my mother would not have wanted me to be sad over her and to get on with living. What else is there to do? There is nothing like losing a loved one to make you aware of your own demise. But I try very hard not to be depressed and to laugh as much as I can tolerate. Also, church helps too.
