Although I have never posted on here I have read with much interest many posts. Almost 3 years ago Mum was finally diagnose with PSP. Well last night my lovely Mum lost her battle with PSP. She is now at peace and no longer having to live with this dreadful disease.

Beer and emotions don't mix but what the heck, I loved my mum til the very end.

Thanks for being my Mum, love you loads ❤️

  • So very sad to hear your news. She is out of pain and misery now though? It is those left behind who continue to suffer? Don't go too hard on the beer but you deserve a couple after losing your Mother to this awful disease. May she rest in peace.


  • Beer and emotions are sometimes just the thing.

    Here's to your Mum and to you, who carry her dream onward.

  • My heart goes out to you, but your mum is in a better place, away from this horrible illness, I raise my glass to you and your lovely mum, rest in peace. Also a big hug coming your way. Yvonne xxxx

  • I'll drink to that.

  • So sorry that your mum passed away. My heartfelt condolences to you. At least she no longer has to cope with this horrible disease. I am sending you lots of hugs and pray that God will give you the strength to cope. If a drink helps you, don't feel guilty about it enjoy it even though it is helping temporarily. Be strong. Xx

  • So sorry to hear about your mum what the others have said is so true she's no longer suffering. I feel for you and I know exactly how your feeling. I lost my dad only 4 weeks ago and the pain and heart ache is unbearable but if someone said we can bring him back tomorrow I would decline the offer as my dad suffered and I now know he's at peace and not having to live day in and day out with the awful illness of PSP or CBD.

    You take care and the way I been dealing with my loss is putting myself in my dads shoes.

  • My sincere condolences on the loss of your mum. As everyone has said already, she is finally at peace. The grief that you feel and that we all will feel is tinged with a relief that our loved ones are no longer being held prisoner to PSP. It must be hard now, but try and remember the good times with your mum. Take care of yourself. Xx

  • So sorry for your loss.. Mum is forever! No words of comfort at a time like this than the fact that she is out of her misery now.. Stay strong

  • My sincerest condolences to you! May your mum be at peace now and free of this evil disease! Let your emotions out and if alcohol helps, go with it! Look through our posts and you will see we all cope with alcohol, it might be wrong but if it helps then so be it! Sending you much love x

  • Your Mum has travelled the long journey of PSP and is now at peace. Sorry for your loss but glad that she no longer has to suffer the horrible symptoms of this disease.

    Love Kate xxx

  • Sorry to hear that your Mum has passed away. May she rest in peace, finally free from this evil disease.

    Beer and emotions, if it's getting you through this awful time, go with it, I say.

    Lots of love


  • I'm so sorry you've lost your dear Mum, try to remember all the happy times you had with her and not this horrible PSP. I think we all tend to drink to help us through this ordeal and if it helps then so be it, although I know what you mean about the emotions it does make you worse, I cry buckets but these emotions have to come out somehow.

    I'm thinking of you and send you a comforting arm around your shoulder, stay strong....

    Love Pat....xx

  • Thanks for all the replies and kind words.

    It was nice to have a couple of hours to myself sitting in the corner of a pub raising a glass to my Mum and remembering all the good times we had.

    After a very long weekend I am now back home with my own family.

  • Sorry to hear of her passing ):

  • I sm so very sorry to hear about your loss, but on the other hand her suffereing is done. Have a few in memory of your mum, and if a few turns into a few more so be it, you deserve it.....and so does she.

  • Sorry for your loss.

    Give full reign to the emotions, drink has a useful place too.

    You will have so many good memories, as well as the bad ones. Hang on to them and how lucky you were to have such a good relationship.

    love. Jean x

  • So sorry to hear of your loss. Although you love and miss her she is in a much better place. Hold onto all your good memories. You're right beer and emotions don't mix, but I'm sure you do need it. Take care.

  • I'm so sorry. No matter how long you have witnessed someone live through a terminal illness, it's still a terrible shock when you finally lose them. Sending you best wishes and hope you find strength during the weeks and months to come.
