Hi, I'm new to all this. My Mom recently died from glioblastoma multiforme. I am feeling many things, one of which is guilt. Maybe I didn't do enough research into alternative treatments. Maybe I missed something important in all the stuff the doctors threw at us. Maybe I didn't offer her enough comfort at the end. My Mom and I were very close, and I tried to be a good caregiver, but sometimes I was just so tired. And I missed my old life -- I spent most of a year taking care of Mom, lost my job, only saw my husband and my own home sporadically. And now I feel like it was all for nothing -- she's gone just the same. And I miss her so much.
