Hi Lisa... Idk if you check this anymore but I just wanted to let you know you're not alone! I lost my mom when I was 20 and my dad this year at 22 right before my son was born. Hoping you are coping well and the holidays are good! -Nicole.
I'm sorry for your losses. That is a lot to deal with at such a young age. I was fortunate enough to have my mother till I was 39 but she died due to a botched biopsy. There was a lawsuit it was not a good time for me. Thank goodness for my husband. But then he was was promoted home January 2009 suddenly from an Aschemic Brainstem Stroke. Five months later I found Life after Death for women to help them "walk beyond their husband's path and beyond grief".
So how did you deal with your mother's passing? And then your father's? I take you are still dealing with some issues are you? The separation when it is sudden is bad I still can't tell if it's worse if it's sudden or if it's a long period of sickness. I really believe it's based on each person and who we are and what we believe.
