I lost my mom a little over a month ago. She had a brain aneurysm and when they went to operate on it, it ruptured. She died on November 11th, only 4 days before my 21st birthday. I'm in the Army and I am currently deployed. So not only did I lose my mom but I can't even be with my family right now. I really don't know how to deal with this. What breaks my heart the most is that I have a 6 year old sister that now has to grow up without her mother. I don't know what to do. Everyone looks to me to be strong for them, and I know I need to be strong for my little sister, but my heart is shattered so I can't be strong all the time. It hurts too much to pretend everything is ok when it is absolutely not.View Thread
