Diane, I lost my Mom when I was 14, so in a way I envy you. She was only 36 when she died. They did an autopsy and could find absolutely nothing wrong. For years, my Mom death has haunted me. Then when I was 36, I lost my 14 year old daughter in a very freak accident that just didn't make sense. When all was said and done, I discovered that I had each one in my life for EXACTLY 14 years, 9 months and 6 days. Do you believe in coincidences? I don't, but I do believe in the power of love and I suspect your Mom is still with you.

Just know that you are never truely alone. God is with you in your time of need. My mom died the day before my only child was born two yrs ago. It was the hardest thing for me. Being a new mom with no one to help me, and finally having a baby, but not being able to share the joy with my mom. I was really lonely. Honestly, I don't know how I got through each day. I would cry every night, but I would also pray for guidance and stregnth. You will get through it slowly. I'm still dealing with some of it now. Especially during the holidays and on my daughter''s bday.

stay strong. I give you credit. I am 28 years old mother of a 5 year old and lost the person closest to me 4 years ago..my dad. since then I have been taking care of my mom who has alzheimers disease and she is in her severe stages. it is hard to give love to your husband in the situation you are in but you have my condolenses and you will make it through. time heals pain slowly but it will make you a strong mother and incredible wife. best of luck. pebbles

Hello Diane, My name is Amanda. I completely understand where you are coming from, about not really having anyone to talk to. I am 28 years old. My mother passed away in Jan of 2010. It's been one of the hardest things I have even been through. She was the most amazing woman, anyone would ever meet. She was like the glue to our family as well. 2 months after she passed away, my 10 year old son had a skateboard (rip stix) accident, and he had to have emergency brain surgery.It's just been a year from hell. And it's very hard to talk to my husband about pretty much anything. We know how men are. But it's like he says he understands, but really he doesn't because both of his parents are still alive. I don't know it's just different now. If you ever want to talk, I will be here to listen and to support you in any way I can. My email address is jnzsmom24@yahoo.com
