Caregivers Who Have Lost Someone
6 months without Mom
Yesterday was 6 months without my beautiful mother. Sadness and tears fill my days. I just miss her so.......
I know it will get easier......and I can't wait for it to.
Last week I received a letter from the hospice group that provided Mom's end-of-life care. Part of the note includes these lines: "Grief Specialists note that a grieving person may reach a 'summit' in their journey at about six months past their loved one's death. From this vantage point one may experience a renewed intensity of sorrow as they navigate the transition of life without someone dear to them. At times you may feel like you're moving backward instead of forward."
That so closely summarized how I feel, that I burst into tears when I read it. I can't wait for it to get easier, too.
deb I feel the same way. I've been crying more and more lately. I'm sure the holidays are adding to the intensity of our grief. I'm sending you lots of strength and love to help you through. Bless us all. Tink, thanks for the hugs, I can always use them
