    Not sure what to do

    I am a 47 year old female. I have lost my mom four years ago and I have just gone down hill since then. I feel worthless and sometimes like it would be better off if I weren’t here. My daughters are both grown and I have not told them how I feel. I just wish I could be happy again.

    RE: Not sure what to do

    Hi there, and I am so sorry for the grief and sadness you are feeling. It's easy to get stuck in grief when you lose someone, and when that happens, it's helpful to get help. It sounds to me that it would be SO good for you to find a therapist who specializes in grief so that he/she can help you work through it and move past it. I don't mean that you will ever forget and there will always be a part of you that will grieve the loss; but you can get to a place where that grief is not debilitating like it is now.

    You can't "just be happy again" until you heal from the grief. You can either stuff it down and ignore it, let it destroy you, or heal with the help of a trained therapist (one that you like and feel connected to and who is a loving, compassionate person)

    I hope that you choose to get the help and support you need from someone who can truly help you! You deserve it, and I don't think that you want to stay stuck in the pain you are in forever, right?

    Again, I am sorry for your loss and your broken heart!

    RE: Not sure what to do

    I understand, you and I are in very similar situation. I’m 57 with two grown sons, my mother passed away a year and seven months. Every things is going downhill for me and it seems to me getting worse each day. My boss was and have been the worst person to work for doing this time in my life. I just wish it was something I could do to get my job back and get back a little of what I had when my mother, my best friend had while she was living. I have been reading the Bible and praying constantly but it seem like I’m in a place where nothing is going right and no one understand and they are not trying to understand. So I’m taken it Day by day.
