I feel like now my mum has gone that no one cares, no one is listening, no one values what I have to say - do the last 15 years count for nothing?
This is the first time for me on this site. I am in my office but my head is completely jammed with worry and stress for my family. I have been seeking help and support but the stress continues. This is yet another attempt to try and find help.
I recently wrote a blog about my Nan to share with people what impact this horrible disease has: http://jasminmartin17.wordpress.com
Reading other blogs and not feeling alone is very helpful and I hope mine makes someone feel this way.
I mainly wrote the blog to get the weight off my shoulders, and being a trainee journalist, writing about something that matters to me came easily.
Any comments are welcome
Ok, so I lost it today and broke down. I cried the whole day - or so it felt. I had to stop working and returned home. Then felt even worse for doing so.
I am so tired of crying now. I think the reality of losing my mom is hitting hard.

Taken some lovely photos though and I really enjoy Chris's thread where we share our photos
