I lost my mom 13 years ago after just turning 20. I am an only child who was raised by a single parent - my mom. She was the most amazing person and my best friend. How does one go on after such a loss. I suppose I've learned to on the surface: finishing school, having a career, and most recently getting married. Then why is it that I still feel so incredibly lost and sad. I am afraid. Afraid to have children because i fear getting sick and dying, afraid that I will never be whole again. The love of a mom is irreplaceable and unforgettable as are the scars that stay with you after seeing her suffer the way she did.
I am new to this board and really just wanted express how I feel with someone out there that understands what I am feeling right now. I know that some time has passed since my mom passed away yet i feel as if it were yesterday and the pain still runs deep.
I so unbelievably miss my mom. I need to know i'm not alone in feeling the same amount of pain as I did when my mom had just passed away 13 years ago.
