I hate the term "lost my mom", but I lost my mom July 7, 2017. I had moved in to her home over a year ago to help her battle breast/lung cancer. I was her care giver while I worked a full time job and juggled being a mom. In July, I went to S.C. to watch my daughter graduate basic training, during her graduation celebrations I learned my mom had slipped into a coma. I had to tell the doctors that she wanted a DNR...it was the worst case scenario for a daughter/mother. My mom passed Friday night, about 24 hours before I could get home. Since then, nothing has been right, I cry every day, I went to the doctor hoping to find the reason I just wasn't feeling right (made him run blood tests certain I had a thyroid problem) and he suggested Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. So, I googled and found this site. Hoping that joining this site will help me in some way. Feeling desperate to feel normal...or to find my new normal.
