Today was my first mother's day too without my mum.  I have been strong all day, until this evening, just broke down. Its exhausting. The pain inside is like i have an empty gaping hole. Some days still so raw, other days things feel better. Not having a mum can be unbearable, the yearning,  but if i focus on all the good that i do have, focus on how my mum would want me to live my life feeling happy, i feel a little peace. I ride the waves that hit day by day.  10 months on and Life has taught me that all we can do is pick ourselves up again when that big one knocks us over. Life does become calmer. Sending a hug to all those who have lost their mum. xxxx

I've enjoyed several books written by Alan Titchmarsh although I don't read, I only do listening  :smiley: and he does his own narration very well. Another 'Yorkshireman' whose books I've found to be worth a listen is an ex school inspector called Gervase Phinn who wrote a series of books about his professional life inspecting Dales Schools, they are full of glimpses of the past and moments of gentle humnour.

Hi All
I am new to this site. I need help to get through this sad time. Let me give you a bit of back ground. My dad died when I was 3 and my brother was 16 he took on this role as our dad. My mum died when I was 32 from heart disease my brother was there for me again we got through it together. Three years ago my sister died an awful death after a number of heart attacks which caused organ failure and she was so scared of dieing an awful experience. We got through it together. My brother was super fit. In June 2016 he had to have a quadruple heart bypass we were shocked. Thankfully he got through it really well until January 13th 2017 he had a cardiac arrest and died. My world as fallen apart I feel like I have lost a parent not a brother I cannot talk to anyone I cannot cry I want to scream why am I losing everyone I love. I have 2 sister's left. But me and my brother had a special bond. I know things get easier but I feel so down at the moment. I am trying to be strong for his wife but I feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest. Please can anyone help me.
Well nearly got through my first mother's day without my mum. Just kept crying at certain points of the day, when i saw something, or thought about something.  Met up with my sister and the kids which was nice for all of us, tried to find somewhere, where there weren't too many families out for the day. Went and released some balloons at mums favourite place, where she used to take all the grandkids.
 I went out with the kids yesterday, so they could buy my card and present and everywhere i looked, was something to do with mother's day. I became really over whelmed in the card shop, as every where i looked was a reminder, that mums no longer with me. I just burst into tears in the middle of the shop... Then i just cried looking round the rest of the shops. The kids just kept hugging me.
Then the guy I've been seeing sent me a cruel text yesterday ending it. He ended it after mums funeral, moaning i didn't talk to him much at the funeral and that my kid's dad was there,  but i was in such a mess, i begged him to take me back. The things you do when you are grieving aren't always the best decisions. All i wanted was mum yesterday to give me a hug and tell me I'll be ok. I'll never have her hugs again.

Hi Norma, not sure if it'll be your cup of tea but I remember I found Stephen Fry s Paperweight really funny some years ago.
I know there are others I liked,  all in the one  vein,   comics  and comedians
Some of Ben Elton's novels , autobiographies  Johnny Vegas  and. Paul Merton  (but for me not Victoria Wood's  unfortunately)
There are others, but can't think what they are..........

Hi again. Just got back from my daughter's where we celebrated Mother's Day as a family.

I feel so bad when I burst in tears in front of my daughter, son in law, son, daughter in law and grandkids, but sometimes I just can't help it. They are all suffering and grieving and I feel I add to it. They worry about me and that makes me feel guilty. I try so hard not to show too much specially in front of the grand-children (youngest 5 years old).

Hate this grieving! And I miss my husband so much. 10 weeks now Charles died. I read other people's post and some of them are still in this forum after 2 years.. Don't know if I can survive this pain for years!!

I'm sorry, this post is all over the place.. Just needed to unload.

I too used to love cooking for Simon.  He had bought me a great cook book I wanted for Christmas.  At the moment I seem to be doing a lot of jacket potatoes and other veg in the microwave, and ready meals.  I cannot face the thought of cooking just yet either.  I also used to enjoy baking bread in the bread maker he bought me.  Cannot do that yet either. 

I just want to let you know that you are not alone Rolande.

Sending you much love
