Mom passed away after 8 years of PSP

My dear mother passed away peacefully in her sleep on the 4th of March after struggling with PSP for 8 years. The last two years were really cruel and we couldn't bear to see her bedridden. The only saving grace is that she is free from the suffering and indignities of this terrible disease.

I may not post on the site regularly but I do get a lot of insights and support from all of you. Thanks and lots of love,

Rita

  • Dear Rita,

    I am so sorry your mother had this ghastly disease in the first place and that she has now passed away. May she rest in peace, may you find some peace yourself and may your mother always be with you!

  • Rita, so sorry to hear about your Mum but as you say her suffering is over. I recently have lost a lifelong and dear friend (through cancer) so I can understand your feeling of loss.

  • Dear Rita,

    My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time, it's terrible to lose someone you love dearly, especially your mum. Just keep thinking she is no longer suffering with awful PSP but is free at last to rest peacefully....

    Sending you love and hugs....Pat

  • Hi Rita, thinking about you and your family - lots of Love

  • So sorry for your loss Rita and that your Mum and family had to go through the whole PSP trauma. She is no longer suffering and I hope and trust that the wonderful memories will be the ones you remember most.

  • Thanks ever so much for all your love and blessings. It's strange that life keeps on going irrespective of the pain and loss that come our way. Things have to be done, children to take care of, chores to do.. What an irony!

    Really appreciate your kind words and condolences.

  • Dear Gena, it is the hardest thing to lose a parent or a child. These are nature's eternal bonds and how much ever we try to be brave and think they are in a better place, it still hurts.
