Well, what kind of "help" do you need? We've all lost our moms and we can all relate. I am always open to conversation if that is what you'd like. Just let me know, I'd love to talk.

Pam-I meant the same help everyone needs when dealing with loss. Dealing with mom being gone, holidays, grief of my child missing her, just talking about it helps KWIM? It was aug.2006 but most days it feels like yesterday, especially now that I am pregnant. No one listens about a growing baby quite like your mom....-jen

HI , Sorry for your loss... I lost my mom in august of 2007 unexpectedly aswell... I was 8 months pregnant with my first child when she passed so I understand completely what you are going through expecially with being pregnant and trying to greive, its rough but, I do promise that it does get easier.. Even though you will never stop missing your mom there is a light at the end of the tunnel.. It takes time but it does get easier ... Wish you well and the best of luck with your baby on the way:)

I lost my mom in september of 2007. My DS was only nine weeks old.  It dies get better, but this first set of holidays was terriable for me!!  All i wanted was my mommy, and that made me feel terriable. 

My best advice is take it a day at a time.  You will have your bad days, but over time you cry less and less.  It really does get better.

Hi. Welcome. yes I think this is the group for you. Like others, we have all had a loss. I lost my mother when I was 18, my sisters were 10 and 12 years old. I took care of her the last year with help of Hospice. She had cancer,and 20 years later, I have the same cancer. I have been fighting it for 3 years now. This group makes you feel good and strong so you can move on with anything. I never feel sorry for myself, because, There are more people out there worse off that I am. But I am always her to listen to anyone about anything. thats what the lord wants us to do, Be there for others and this group is awsome for being there at anytime of the day or night for all of us.
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother.
God bless,
Denise

Hi, and welcome to the group!

I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom.  This is definitely the group for you, go through our old posts to find more information about the group and why I started it.  I was in the same predicament with you, had 3 small children and didn't have a clue where to turn with my grief.  I tried grief counseling, but it wasn't for me.  I tried therapy, but ended up feeling worse when I left than I'd felt when I first got there.

So, here I am.  This group has worked wonders for me, because I know each and every lady here understands my posts and really FEEL my words in their own hearts.

I hope you find peace and comfort here, post anytime!  We'll understand.

Bobbi
