Are you grieving? I am. But Mom is still with us.

Grief results not only from the loss of a loved one. Sometimes we don’t know that’s the emotion we’re experiencing in a relationship, or even a job (which is also a relationship). This morning, I recalled a therapy session years ago in which it was suggested I was grieving the loss of the relationship I once had with my, then, husband of 20 years.

Why do I feel so isolated from my family, friends, and life caring for my mom?

I have been caretaking for my mom now and my dad before he died of cancer 5 years ago. after my dad passed i moved in with my mom because she was lonely and needed help to stay in her home. its been 5 years now
