I'm so sorry, sweetheart - I didn't know about your Mom.
I know how it was with losing Dad last Oct & so I'm here if you do want to talk. Or not talk - you do what you need to do, okay?

*hugs* I know you're familiar with all of this. And I know it takes time. It's not just the loss of mom, but the loss of my future and my worry about how I'm supposed to survive.

I know how it feels, and I know how hard it is. It's just inconceivable. I share in your grief, my friend.

*hugs* I knew you'd understand. I hope things are better for you.

I'm so sorry to hear of your mom's passing and sorry I'm so late with my sympathies. I haven't been around very much, but I was very saddened to hear she is gone. I offer my (virtual) shoulder if you need to vent... (((HUGS)))

*hugs* You're very sweet. I was wondering where you'd gotten to.

Thanks honey. It's hard but I'm trying.

Hello sweetheart,

I am really late with this, but I just wanted you to know that even though we don't know each other all that well, I am here if you need me *hugs*

As for closure, I don't mean to be a pain in the ass, but to be very honest it usually takes about a year just to accept that someone close to you has passed. Just give yourself some time hon. Losing your mother is the worst thing I could ever imagine happening and I am truly sorry for your loss *hugs more*

I do know it takes time. And the holidays are always the worst. I went through it when I lost my grandmother who was just like a second mom to me and I had a similar adjustment period after my divorce. So I know to expect it. It's just the additional stress of my future being in the toilet and seemingly no way out that's made it so much worse. I can't work and have been trying to get social security for 7 years and my parents spent all the money they had to try and help while we waited and still nothing from ss and I'm not mentally or physically able to help, so it's all just hanging over my head making me completely nuts. I can't run off to the movies or indulge in my outlet(photography) because I have no money to do so. So I feel well and truly trapped.

I know you don't really know me, but I wanted to let you know that I'm very sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine how hard this must be on you. I saw your first post about this a few weeks ago and I wanted to let you know I've been wondering how you were doing, and hoping you were doing alright.

You're very sweet to comment. *hugs* It's very hard--she was my constant supporter and I miss her terribly.
cyclonicblast From: cyclonicblast Date: July 18th, 2007 03:33 am (UTC) (Link)
I was hesitant to comment, because I thought you might think of it as strange since I hadn't talked to you before and then here I was commenting on something very personal.

I hope the pain eases some after awhile. Just keep the memories of her alive in your heart. *hugs*

btw, I've added you as a friend and tried to leave you a note to let you know but they settings wouldn't let me. So I hope that's ok.
cyclonicblast From: cyclonicblast Date: July 18th, 2007 03:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I got the email and added you back. (I was actually going to ask if you minded if I friended you, but I got shy so I didn't)

Sorry about the settings. I've had stalker issues, so I keep my journal in lock-down mode. lol
