How I'm doing.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I want to thank you all for the messages yoou have sent to me following the death of my mother 3 weeks ago. It seems like it was only yesterday. I am finding it hard to get to terms with mums loss but I am working through it a day at a time. I know I've not been on Spark for ages but this grief thing really plays havic on you. For me I ended up in hospital with a big infection, then my asthma played up, then I got pneumonia and lastly laryngitis. So getting the energy to go on Spark was hard and tnight I decided to make it a priority. I hope that you are all well and looking forward to the Olympic Games as I am and that our countries do well. I look forward to hearing back from you. Joyce. emoticon emoticon

    Having been through such a loss, I understand how low it can take you. But the illnesses and infections are SUCH an added burden! I hope your energy comes back on line! You take care and let that Spark start glowing!

    I am so sorry about your illnesses, but even more so about the loss of your Mom. My Mom died last year, so I know the pain. God bless you and comfort you.

    Sounds like you were just fighting one problem after another. Glad they are coming to an end. The loss of your mother might take a bit longer but she will be with you in memory. We can't ask for more than good memories of our loved ones.

    I'm glad your body seems to be on that mend - what a super whammy right in the midst of grieving.

    So sorry about your loss. I came home from a New Year's party in 1967 to find my mother dead from a heart attack. I was 17 then. I had to go back to school that week after the funeral and I got NO sympathy from anyone, since what the H#@L did I expect since she was FIFTY-EIGHT years old! Yes, to a group of 17 year old Seniors in high school, she was over-the-hill and that was that.

    I know what you mean about guilt.

    You will always miss your mom, but she will be able to remain in your heart. You may not have had as many years with her as you would have liked, but its the quality of time in the years you did have with her that count. It is good that she was so supportive of you when you cam out, not all parents are.

    Grief is a long and winding road. Just when you think you're doing better, not. It's been a very slow process for me because I've lost so many in the past four years (12) and currently have a dying mother. Stay strong and be patient with yourself during this process.

    Many thanks for the messages of support with my recent loss of mum. It is good to hear what your thoughts have been about your loss of which my condolences go back to you. It was harder due to the fact that for moost of my life my mum wasn't in it due to too many reasaons. I have been raised by at least 3 other families so really did not get to spend much time with her. However the last 7 years were our years and they were the best ever. We got to know each other. I came out as a Lesbian at that time and she was one of my greatest supprts. I miss her and am going through grief and loss of which I am getting some counselling which is great. I felt I needed it when Ifelt nothing which was unusual for me when their is a loss of a family or friend. The sessions are going well and I will keep you updated. Loves to you all. Joyce emoticon

    Grief takes its toll on us, emotionally and physically, I know. Give yourself time to heal. This will not be easy. I miss my mom every day, still cry when I think of her, and she's been gone 18 months now. It will get a bit easier.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know. I lost my mom so I know how you feel. Please try to remember the good times.

    How is married life?
