Mummy has gone

Mummy has gone

On Monday night my brave beautiful stoic mother gave up the battle with this horrendous disease. She had her first fall 12 years ago and we have fought continuously since then , fought for a diagnosis, CHC, Carers at home, hospice respite and finally for this past year she was in an amazing nursing home and I could breathe a little.

PSP takes everything it's unrelenting both for the patient and their Carers. I am devastated she is gone, cross that I am struggling to remember her without the clutches of this illness and relieved she has escaped it.... What a mixed bag of emotions.

To all the families still in this battle my heart goes out to you, to all who have lost someone to it I join your mourning.

  • So sorry Molly,Yes PSP steals everything each time leaving a note I will be back.Get all the photos of your Mum from pre PSP and leave them where you can see them. Des died in July but a healthy happy Des is in my kitchen every morning when I put the kettle on,he raises his glass in the evening when I watch TV and he bumbles by the beach when I get into bed.Thinking of you.Px

  • This is exactly what I do! Pictures all around!! Smiling happy laughing !!! really helps me erase the horrible PSP images. Just one with the grandkids in summer 2015. He died this last July and he helps me ever minute of the day to go on. Keep hanging on!!

  • Dear Molly ,

    My sincere condolences to you .. Your mum is definitely at peace now . Lots of love to you stay strong xx

  • Molly, my sincere condolences. I feel that same way you do. I lost my wife 2.5 months ago and I am still numb and in disbelief. Most of my memories of her are more of the past 2 years, where she looked much like your mum. So sweet and innocent and undeserving of this horrific disease.

    God bless you and your family.


  • My sincere condolences to you on the loss of your mum. No longer has PSP control over her, she is free and now at peace. Take one day at a time to grieve and gradually build up your strength, and those precious memories of happier times will eventually come back. Lots of love, Nanny857 x

You will miss her, you will be angry because this horrible disease has taken her from you, you will be warmed with the thought that she no longer suffering and you will be happy with wonderful happy memories of her, it all takes time.
