I'm a new member. I'm feeling so upset. I thought I was prepared for my Mum's death but I wasn't. It's four months now and the days and nights are such a struggle.
I'm dreading all the "firsts" ..this coming Mothers Day, an upcoming family celebration, my birthday, her birthday. ...you get the idea.
On top of that I'm dealing with the likelihood of having to have a loved pet put to sleep.
I'm very fortunate to have a loving partner and lovely girls but I have never felt so lonely ..if that makes sense.
Please tell me I'm not alone. I'm alternating between crying a lot of the time and/or getting upset and angry with my loved ones.
I have suffered with anxiety and depression for most of my life..close to forty years so this also multiplies the grief.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
