    Hello everyone. I lost my mum 2 days ago. I just wanted to share my loss with someone. As you might guess, i am crying as I write this. You see, i live at home and have looked after my father until he passed away around a year ago and simultaneously looked after my mother until around a week ago. Right now I feel very sad in an empty house. I used to sleep alongside her and cuddle her. At least her being nice to me kept me coping. I cried when I saw the pressure cooker today. You see,i looked after mum and dad and kept them fed with it. I would encourage everyone to inquire what events are likely when someone passes away. I read that advice elsewhere here but it bears well repeating it I feel.I think my mum was a wonderful lady! Please let me indulge myself and write–THANKS MUM.

    Hi Allonthesamer, it sounds like you have been through so much in recent years and now the world around you seems so different. It will take time to process. You are obviously very proud of your mum. Yes, please keep the messages coming, and/or give Griefline a call on 1300 845 745.

    Hello. Thanks for your message to me-see above. I am mum and dad’s’ SON actually. Thank you for writing to me. I just thought for you to look at all treatment options for your father. It might help to get another doctor’s treatment opinion? It must be very wearing on you to worry all of this time about your father? That is what this forum tries to do-by having someone else to share thoughts with. Thus ease our burden/s. It has only been a few days since my mum passed away. So best thoughts to you—.

    Hi Allonthesamer, thanks for reaching out, it’s very brave of you to do this especially 2 days after your mum’s passing. I’m so sorry on the loss of your father a year ago and now the recent passing of your mum. You have been through a lot in a short space of time. The world around you, even the things like the pressure cooker, would feel so hard for you process at the moment, this is a very normal reaction to what you have been through. Please call us at Griefline on 1300 845 745 if you feel you would like to talk to one of our trained volunteers, you are not alone.

    Hello VM_nesq1
    Thank you for contacting me and commenting on my recent family events. I might call you in the future? Yes, it is a horrible event for me. I wish I could stop it from ever happening.

    Hello. Thanks for your (Griefline) service. YES, losing my father meant that our family relationship is not the same. To lose my mum is to have her voice be silenced forever. I am simply trying to keep going through all of this upset.
