I just lost my mom

Hello my name is Jessica and I just lost my mom to cancer. She was 59. They finally found a tumor in her lungs and she was gone 4 days later. I am an only child and my mother was single. I am so lost right now and have never felt more alone. I feel so defeated because we were trying for months to figure out what was happening and didn't even find out what type of cancer she had before she passed. My head is spinning and I feel like I'm losing my mind. I have seen death before and also see how people come together and build a support system. While I have people in my life my mom did not so now that she is gone I feel like I'm the only who cares and I'm overwhelmed with my grief that I have no one to share with. I'm not even sure what I'm looking for or need but I just know that I am lost

Jessa I am so sorry for your loss.  I cannot even imagine how you feel.  I wish I knew what to say to make you feel better.  Unfortunately, it will take time.  Please don't give up.  When my first husband died, I was lost.  I found a support group and it made a world of difference.  He did not pass from cancer but the loss was still intense.  Finding someone in your area that has had similar experiences can make a difference.  They will have a better understanding of what you are going through.  I know there are resources on this site, as well as an onocology center should be able to help you find a support group or a counselor that works with cancer survivors.  Even though you didn't have the cancer, you are a cancer survivor!  

I am not on here very often but will respond if you message me.  If you need someone to talk to....
