I just lost my mother 2 weeks ago and its been so hard to say the least! She had AML but the thing is she was able to get it under control even after relapsing twice!
She was 52 years old and has been battling AML for 3 years. She also got a stroke in year 1 because of complications from chemo. This left with post stroke pain which is a constant pain on the side of the body that was affected by the stroke. It was horrible.
Why do bad things happen to such good people? I feel like theres no one that understands. I'm back at work and everyone is acting like nothing happened. I understand that the world can't stop but boy is it hard to see it move on. Just doesn't seem fair. I'm 28 years old and I was just SO close to my mom. She was a my best friend and I just can't imagine how to move forward. People say that shes in your heart and think of the memories that she left. All that is nice but I really miss her being and interacting with her.
I feel like I'm venting but it feels like no one really understands. Even people that I thought were close friends haven't really been supportive. I guess before my mom got sick, I never understood what it felt like to lose a parent either.
This just hurts so bad!
