Sad how I've moved from one section to another in each forum and finally I'm here with much sadness and relief if I'm being honest.
Another chapter, still feeling shocked even though it was expected... She passed away tonight...

I was with her and it was a peaceful experience.. And I'm glad I was there for her....

I had the same feelings, relief and shock ... and hard to believe my lovely mum had passed away.

Thank you all, I have to tell my daughter when she comes him home, not looking forward to that but I'm sure she'll be fine.
I feel guilty for feeling relieved, is this right?

I think you'll have a whole range of emotions.
Relief after living with dementia.
Sadness, I miss her so much.
Guilt for some of my negative thoughts through the illness
Love, an overwhelming feeling of wanting to physically see her one more time.

Thoughts are with you x

Don`t feel guilty gillybean. Your mother will be illness free and peaceful now. You are relieved for her.

I'm so sorry to hear your news, gillybean. I do understand that you feel some relief, which I think is only natural, given how your mum has suffered.

I am sure you will feel a whole gamut of emotions, none are more valid than any other.

I am so glad your mum's end was peaceful and that you were able to be with her.

Sending you love and (((hugs))), and strength for the days ahead

Lindy xx
