Mum died on 7 March, the funeral was on the 21st. It's been hard, as it is for everyone after a death, but reading posts on this site has helped. I have no regrets and did everything I could for her as she had done so much for me and the rest of the family, her own mother and her husband. She really was a wonderful woman- as is everyone's mother.
I've been looking after mum for over 5 years and it gave a purpose to my life. And now ??? I'm thinking and planning to do the camino walk to Santiago de Compostella - am I mad ? Has anyone done it ?
Then later it will be back to reality and looking for work to pay the bills. Want to do something helping people but not sure what.
Sympathy to everyone here who has lost a loved one to this awful disease. I think someone said it's worse because we've already been grieving for the person while we watched them suffer. I don't know- hope I don't start getting angry.
