Thank for your support. Everyone thinks they know grief but until you lose that one person in your life that is irreplaceable, the light in your heart and the soul of your existence then grieving is whole other ball game. I have never felt such deep emptiness, I never stop smiling normally and now I don't. There are no words, no actions and no things that can ease my pain! So now I have to learn how to live without my reason for smiling. How? How or when will this happen? I am so lost I feel completely removed from who I was. I am holding my own but I just can't get over this deep sadness!View Thread
I can sympathize with the lady who is having a hard time dealing with her mothers impending death. My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer too and was given a very short time to live. Lucky for us she went into remission but was diagnosed with dementia. Approximately 4 years from diagnosis she started going down hill suddenly and died to my great surprise! Now, almost two months later I am no further ahead with my grief that I was the day she died. Mother's day weekend has been so hard. I feel like the light has gone out in me and I am merely a zombie. I am slowly learning to cope in some ways in others I am still a basket case. I fear I will never smile again. How do go on when the one person you adored and counted on and spent most of your time with is gone?View Thread
