I lost my mom a few weeks ago. At first I thought I was ok, but now I don;t know what to do. I don;t eat, hardly sleep etc. I get so angry I feel like I could seriously hurt someone. I don;t believe in talking to doctors nor going on meds. Is there anything I can do?

Keep talking.....

I lost my son in Feb of 2005 and just keep talking, morn and grieve all you want but talk about it too and remember the good times you had as well as the bad times. A loss of a family member or a close friends hurts, and usually doesnt make sense, so grieve in any way that makes you feel better, and dont stop because someone wants to be stupid and say "get over it" truth is, you will never get over it, you will just learn how to move forward


Good Luck and all my prayers are with those that have lost.

Dear Insp Gadget;
 
I am so sorry you lost your mom. Was it sudden? Were you close to your mom?
 
It's too bad that you don't believe in therapy, because it would help. There are all kinds and grief therapy is one.
 
If I can recommend another site, there is a grief and support board on WebMD that might be a good place for you to post and get support.
 
When my parents died, the grief came in waves. I would think it would be gone and then, like a wave that sneaks up behind you in the ocean, there would come one and it would crash over me, taking me by surprise and pulling up sadness and grief all over again. It eventually subsided as I went through the grief process. Now I am still sad they are gone, but I can miss them without pain.
 
I hope you will look into grief counselling, which is available in many places and can give you a support group to talk with and people to relate to who are having similar experiences.
 
Good luck and I'm so sorry for your loss and your grief.

Hi Nanse,

Thank you for your comments. I was not able to locate the Grief and support board on Webmd. I wonder if you could send me the link?

Thanks!

Hi,
Here's the link. Or, go to WebMD, Board, Grief and Loss.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you still can't get to it, okay?

Hi Insp Gadget,
Just reading your topic line gave me chills. I am so sorry about your mom also. That is one of my worst fears and I don't know how anyone can handle it when it happens.
Good luck to you and stay strong

Dear Insp,
 
Please be patient. Weekends and holidays are sometimes slow there. Please keep checking and I am positive you will receive replies.
 
I hope today finds you peaceful and thinking of sweet and loving memories of your Mom.  :-)
 
Tell us about her. What was she like?

Also, there is a Depression and Depression support board there. Grief is a form of depression and you may find more responses on one of those boards. Cinnabar is a very nice person to seek out there, as well as brwneyes.

Sounds good. I will wait a few days to see if I get any responses.

I actually feel pretty good this morning. The last 2 days were very hard. I felt so angry, but had no idea whya nd no outlet for that anger. I find that the hardest to deal with. I keep it bottled up and the stress builds to an unbearable level. I feel tense all over, unable to eat, sleep or relax. Can't concentrate etc.

I created a website in memory of my mother. You can have a look at it here: http://reta-berthelot.memory-of.com/about.aspx

I see you use Yahoo and AIM. I use MSn. Would have been nice if we could chat....

Well, if you download either Yahoo or Aim, IM me! They are both free and easy to download.

I will visit your site; what a nice tribute!

Put words to your anger. Say it out loud or write it down. Yell it in the shower. Anger is a part of grief; we don't like what happened and we are angry about it.

I'm glad you are feeling better today!

Thinking of you!
((HUGS))
