Feel so lost

I feel kind of stupid writing this down but I just I am just looking for some comfort. My mom passed away unexpectedly last week. I never thought in a million years I would be going through her things without her here. To top it off, I had a huge falling out with a group of friends a couple years ago and no one even acknowledged her death. I know it shouldn't upset me... but it does. It feels like I have no friends, no support and my mom was an anchor for me. I feel like a horrible person. Thanks for listening.

I am sorry you feel so alone.

I am very sorry for your loss.

Don't force yourself to go through all her stuff right now if you don't have to.

That stuff can wait

I am very sorry for your loss, it is hard to cope with the sudden loss of someone we love.

Even though your mum is gone, she can still be your anchor.
Grieving, by it's very nature is lonely and I am sorry your 'friends' have not been supportive during this sad time.

Take care of you and if you need somewhere to 'chat' there are lots of people here that are very good listeners.

Thank you all for your kindness. I have been really overcome with the shock of it all and feeling sorry for myself. I have a great husband and daughter but I just feel like no one really understands what it is like. I miss my mom.

No one knows what it's like until they go through it.

My Daddy passed away 4 years ago this past Feb. 16th. I am an only child and extremely close with my Mom and Dad. It still hurts. Let yourself grieve. Cry if you need to. Scream if you want. Whatever helps YOU get through this is what's important. I miss my Dad every single day. I have had people that have lost parents try to comfort me. They can't. I was totally (and still consider myself) a Daddy's Girl.

About your friends - I am sorry. My ex-husband never acknowledged my Dad and I was really hurt. To this day, his entire family hasn't. Never even sent a card. I just feel bad that that is the way they were brought up and I know my Dad wouldn't want me to worry about that.

We're here if you need us.

I am so sorry for your loss. I miss my mom too. Its true no one understands sometimes. I battled cancer alot last year and wish she was there. I agree with the other posters, if you dont have to go through her things right now, dont, you need time to grieve. I pray Gods peace and comfort for you during this difficult time. Know your mum will always be in your heart and cling to all the good memories you have.

I lost my mom unexpectantly right at Christmas time. I miss her and think of her every day. Some days it just hits me, that she is not with us anymore.

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

I am so sorry for you loss! I just wanted to say that you mom will always be there to comfort you. I think writing a letter to her would help you. I still write in mines and then one day when I am ready, I think I will bury it and or mail it to heaven. It really helps me especially when I feel that others around me are not able to console me.
"Worry looks around, Sorry looks back, Faith looks up."

"I have placed the Lord ever before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." Psalm 16:8
