So it's been 16 months now since I watched my mum die. I've survived. I have coped - with my two wee kids mostly on my on because my husband in Armed Forces. It's not got any better. In fact I think now the shock has worn off the emptiness I'm left with is worse than ever. I'm yearning to see her. I feel envious when I see other people with their mums. I know that's awful but I can't help it. I look at my children and feel such sadness that they don't know her. Is this the anger stage? I just realising I'm going to live with this sadness forever. I don't share my feelings really. I say I'm ok but at night alone I cry myself to sleep. I just had to let this out somewhere. Maybe sharing how I'm feeling will help. I've been reading other post and I kno I'm not alone in feeling such grief more than a year on xx

Talking about it really helps, it certainly helped me  :hearts:  the sadness will change over time, it's been 4 years since I lost my dad, I still think of him most days, sometimes feel really sad and miss him, some days smile from the memories. They never leave us, but in time it gets easier to cope.  :hearts: xx
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. 
Hold on in there xx
