Still concerned about the fact that I haven't really grieved for her.

Reading some threads here about bereavement have helped.

Anyway, I love you, my mummy.

And I miss you and think about you every day.

sad it is very hard

Im sorry about your mum, hope you ok.

Don't assume you haven't grieved - it comes in many different forms. Posting this was an expression of your grief. And it's not something that has a cut-off point - it will always be part of you.

I'm very sorry - it is so bloody hard.

sad for you.

Mine died 36 years ago (I was 4) so I didn't even really KNOW her ifyswim. I still miss her.

To remember and miss the REAL Mum, must be awful.

Thank you, all.

I'm fine. I just get a bit cross sometimes, because she was only 66 and was really enjoying her life.

And I miss talking to her. We were only 21 years apart. There are so many things I would like to talk to her about, specifically the menopause.

I'm sorry BIWI. I know what you mean about having things you'd like to talk to her about.

Raising a glass Del Monte Refreshing Iced Mango Smoothie to your lovely mum.

I think she would have preferred it with a gin in it, actually!

Sorry. I'm very appreciative of all your messages - just I know what she was like!

I suppose that's why I miss her really.

sad bless you

There's no substitute, is there.

I hae it when people say 'your mum is with you in spirit' and all that malarkey. No she isn't. If she was she'd be telling me wtf to do.

BecauseImWoeufit Sat 11-Apr-09 00:01:53

Thank you, 2shoes.

I'm OK now, actually. I know that my mum would not have wanted me (or my brother) to wallow. She was very much someone who wanted to live life to the full.

thoughts going out to you because. x

BecauseImWoeufit I know, my mum died when I was 18 so a long time ago, and I still miss her.
I have a feeling missing my dad and greiving for him is going to take a long time(he has only been gone 2 months and omg I want him back) so be kind to yours self.

BecauseImWoeufit Sat 11-Apr-09 00:12:23

Sorry 2shoes [[hugs]] - I know that's not very MN.

There are no words, are there?
