My mom died yesterday

My mother died yesterday at 62 yo after 23 years of suffering from schizophrenia. It was caused by dysphagia. We were very close together. How can I live without her ?

Your mother will always be in your memory. Perhaps she will help you to pass on the good that she was, and did, to others.

I am so sorry Mahsa, the loss hits even harder when you have been the caregiver to a family member.

I hope you were able to be with her and bring her the comfort of your presence. She would want you to build your life, but give yourself time to grieve first.

This must be a terrible loss for you. You’ve devoted so much of yourself to her. It may feel like you have lost a part of yourself. I hope you find comfort in your memories of her, and as you heal, find new possibilities for yourself. For now, give yourself permission to grieve for as long as you need to.

So sorry to hear. How to go on without her? My mom died when she was 59. That was 30-years ago. I still feel her love every day. You will, too. Stay strong. You’re worth it and it is what your mom would hope for.
