I'm so sorry for your loss. What you're going through is normal. In time you'll be more focused. Right now you're grieving and confused. Go easy on yourself. Can you get someone to help you?

So, so sorry for your loss. My Mom died four years ago, she was elderly but it was an unexpected death. All I wanted to do was be with her....and I still feel that way. I feel like she's happy in heaven with her family, but she is still worrying about what's happening with me and my son back here on earth. (She was always a worrier.) And for my part, I have so much stored up to tell her when I see her! She was my best friend and I feel so alone without her. I'm no longer crying every day, but I still feel such a void in my life. So I completely understand how you feel and just remember you have to grieve on your own time....even when people have moved on and feel you should have, too. It's YOUR Mom!

Please ask your family for help. My older sister was our Mom's main caretaker and our family came to her help immediately so it wasn't as hard on her as it could have been. We all were more than thankful for her giving up her time & life because the rest of us were working full-time and she was able to work from home.

I'm certain the rest of your family feels the same as we did - that it was the least we could do to help.
