Hi there EarthMother and Welcome to HealingWell,
I am sorry to hear about
your mother and I am pleased to hear that you are off meds! Thats a real achievement. New Years eve is a hard one to avoid as it is all over the television, radio etc... I have not lost a parent so I dont really know about
coping with those sorts of things, but what I do know is that I am sure that your mum would love to see you carry on celebrating new years eve without her. When you say that nobody seems to have any consideration for you, have you tried talking to them about
how you feel and how they can help you get through this hard time? Everyone copes with grief in a different way. My personal opinion is not to stop the party now that the birthday girl isnt there... carry on and celebrate her life and what she had.
All the best
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
