Missing my mum

3 years ago today I lost my mum following her battle with ovarian cancer, she was 58 and my everything. I miss her more than words can say. Throughout the time of her illness and death I regularly cameonto this site and gained so much from all you ladies posting on here. I feel in ways the people posting and sharing saved me. It's gave me hope and faith in life again. The honest and sincere information shared between everyone is amazing. To me personally at times when I felt alone in the world I never felt alone in this illness as I would pop on here and gain information understanding and Contentment. Since mum passed I only ever come on here occasionally. Tonight something drew me back here. I wanted to thank everyone, I wanted to commend everyone's bravery and spirit. Good luck to everyone. May you all keep well and winning. Brave and courageous women!!! Xx

Dear Mbf123

Please don't call us brave because we just cope with what's sent our way, but you, looking on at a loved ones suffering, with no way of making it better yourself, but not running away, now that's brave. I too lost my mum in my early 20s and have missed living my life with her, but I am grateful to her for moulding me into the person that I am, being able to cope with whatever life throws and not being afraid all the time. Some say what will be will be but I say what will be will last as long as I can make it! Xxx

Hi Mbf, thank you for such a lovely post. I think we all support each other as best we can, and it's lovely to hear that we've supported you too.

I can only imagine how hard it is to lose your mum. My children are 8 and 5 and it devastates me to imagine them growing up without me...I'm trying my hardest to make sure that doesn't happen! It's the only thing about this sh*tty disease that makes me cry on a regular basis.

I'm sure your mum would be so proud of you. You sound like a wonderful daughter.

Much love xxx

Hi Love, I'm glad you came back. over the last 3 years I have correspond with some lovely ladies and at my lowest point turning to this site has been a great comfort to me,

I understand your feeling the way you do .

Your Mum was young at 58 I lost my mum about the same age and I'm 72 now and still miss her and all the family celebration she has missed out on.

I'm so lucky I have two daughter who are very supportive so I'm sure your mum was glad you were by her side.

Always feel welcome to this site my best wishes to you and all the best for the future. .Lorraine xx

I lost my dad just before I went for my op in December. I was too sick to visit him in hospital and will never get over this. It was his birthday yesterday and I posted a lovely photo of him on Facebook. I like to think that he is still around us. Thinking too deeply about it is difficult because it is hard to work out where he has gone. I am so glad that this forum was helpful. I am 58 and I rely heavily on the group for help and comfort. I'm really glad that you have been in touch again.

It's hard losing your Mum. It takes time to come to terms with things. If you are finding it more difficult than usual today or in the next few days try and visit a Cancer Support Centre where some one will listen and help you sort your thoughts. Anniversaries are always hard anyhow. Thank you for your kind words. We try to support each other as best we are able here. We are lucky to have supportive people who encourage each other. All the very best to you
