I lost my Mother a few months ago. Even though I am a mother of kids, I still feel that I need a mother. Sometimes I miss her so much. Even though I know that she is now in a better place and no more in pain, I sometimes become very sad. Interestingly, during the shiva I was not really sad because she was so sick and we knew she was not going to pull through. But now it is catching up to me.

I lost my mother 9 1/2 years ago and it honestly goes in waves. I don't think a daughter ever gets over losing their mother. I am a mother in law now, 2x and still miss her. I didn't even have a great relationship with my mother, and I still miss her.

I know that sometimes when they're ill it is a relief, but you still want your Mommy.

I must say, I had quite a tough time in the first year, but as the yartzeit came and went, I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders, interestingly enough.

It will have its ups and downs and sometimes you'll feel so happy that you had her as your mom, and sometimes you'll miss her so much you'll want to burst. Go with the feelings and love yourself through them.

How does one get over the grief of having lost both parents? I am fairly young and I lost my mom to cancer five years ago. Five months ago my father died suddenly from a cold which very rapidly became a pneumonia, and while he was in the hospital emergency room, being treated for the pneumonia, he suffered a massive heart attack, after which he was put on life support and he died 2 weeks later. My sibs and I are very, very shattered. We Boruch Hashem have each other, but we miss our beloved parents terribly. It is such a lonesome feeling. Our parents were the most wonderful parents children could ever hope for; our pain is immeasurable.
