Do You Miss Your Mum?
# 1 : Friday 5-12-2008 @ 07:48
I really miss my Mum. She was a great influence on me even though she dind't know my coming out (but she learned of my sisters) but I think she knew deep down. She was so open minded but she died suddenly at 46 when I was only 15 years old. But she loved ABBA which I inherited of her and Joni Mitchell and I was so very close to her. My mother was into Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. Do any Gaireans have a parent they lament?

There isn`t a moment in the day I don`t think of my Mum. People say it gets easier with time,I can assure you it dosn`t.
I still just get an idea into my mind to ring her and say hello but I just turn on the old answering machine just to hear her voice again.
I avoid passing her old house because It`s too upsetting.

Missing people becomes part of your life, so you get used to missing them rather than missing them less, I think.

My mum's still alive but in the last year she's gotten really sick. She has Osteoperosis (sp?) now and her spine is slowy disolving (she has actually shrank about 3 inches this year) so she's not even allowed pick up her grandkids anymore because it'd be to much pressure on her spine. She's in hospital next week for a MRI and then we'll find out how bad it really is. If anything happened I'd miss her a lot.

Well I miss my mum and love her deeply. She died so young,at only 46 years of age.

Oh God, my Ma's dead 17 years now, and there isn't a day goes by I don't think of her and miss her. Thankfully the numbing pain of losing her (to cancer at 64) has fairly well dissipated, though it does make the odd unexpected visit!!

not a day goes by without me thinking about my mum and dad. folk do say it gets easier with time but i don't think it really does. and no matter how many times you're faced with death it never ever gets easier. i miss my mum more at new year for she always liked us all to be sitting for the bells with her. pot of stew bubbling away and duster in hand frantically cleaning the last specks of dust she could find. tnen the minute auld lang syne would come she would sob like there was no tomorrow.

Right now I can't relate because that would be like saying I expect my mum to die soon and I'm not ready to admit that yet but I think this time of year everybody misses someone they've lost and I know it hurts but the best way to go on without the sadness is to think to yourself would she like to know that you're dying so much inside because she died outside? she'd want you to be happy and she'd know lamenting her (especially this time of year when everyone should be happy) means you're not really happy. I know it's hard but let her go, don't let her death define you. You said she had a great influence on you so let her life define you. Being happy isn't a betrayal of her memory, it's a testement to how much love and stability she had the chance to leave behind.

Did you try to get back in touch with her?

I havent lost anyone really close to me yet *touch wood*, but I sometimes try to imagine life without my mother, father or brother...I cant. I think I'd fall apart if any of them died. Although I cant feel yer pain lads, I do feel very very sad reading some of yer memories. My heart goes out to ye..

I get dreams from time to time of Mum coming back in her Volkswagen Golf that she had. In the dreams she is keen to see how I've progressed buty she always has to go back. Sorry for bothering people but I just had to post my post. I really miss her.

My mum only died two years ago but God love her,she died a horrible death.She wouldn`t tell the medical staff how much pain she was in and when the last few hours came she howled in agony.Even with the morphine she was in agony but wouldn`t let go.
My son is still seeing a councillor over it.
I`ll never forget begging her to let go and the look on my Brothers face as the nurse listened as her pulse faded..
I have been through some bad stuff in my life but nothing could prepare me for the pain and loneliness of seeing my Mum die.

I guess maybe i could look for her, where i would start i have no idea she has a 7,8 and 9 yr old too i would love to see. Any ideas on how you can find someone in Uk, mind you she goes on so many diff surnames would be hard!
