As it is mother's day, I was just wondering if anyone else lost their mother at a young age? I am 33 but lost mine when I was 17. For many years beforehand she had a host of health issues, specifically type 1 Diabetes and MS, and was basically bedridden, so it wasn't that unexpected but still a shock.

I lost my mom when I was a senior in college at 22. She had cancer.

My mom actually died when I was 31, but she had severe dementia for seven or eight years before that, so for all practical purposes I lost her when I was more like 23.

Does it count that I have a mom who chose not to be a mom? Chose drugs and alcohol over raising her daughter? Sometimes I think I am lucky that she is still here so that I do not over-romanticize "what she might have been", had one of her binges actually taken her life.
Sorry to all of y'all. My best friend lost her mom when we were in college and she has never been the same. We are 50 now.

My mother died at the young age of 25 from malaria. I was just 4 years old and my brother was 2 years old. That fate changed the course of our lives forever.

My HS friend lost her mom the summer she turned 21, and then lost her father 10 months after that. So, she was an orphan at 22 years old. It definitely impacted her life for many years, and still does to some degree as an early 40 something married wife now.

My mom's mother died when she was 14. I'd have to assume this has been a major cause my mom's lack of healthy relationships. I have such a superficial relationship with her that I don't know how her mom died.

My friend lost her mom when she was 16.

I think a lot of her anger stems from this. She's a very nice person, but there is this simmering anger underneath that flares at any perceived slight.
