Your mum is spared any further indignities so it's right to feel relief. Sincere condolences.
Sending sympathy for your loss, so glad it was peaceful xxx
When someone has been ill - and dementia is an illness - for a period of time and you have watched that person you love deteriorate in health knowing they will not recover - it is natural to feel relief that they are now beyond pain - mental and physical. Give yourself time - Mother's are such special people - you will probably find that your feelings fluctuate for a time as you come to terms with your loss.
Thinking of you and your family with loving thoughts at this sad time WIFE
I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
There is no right or wrong way to feel. Relief is quite normal, relief that your mum is no longer suffering, and relief that your own battle with dementia is over too.
Oh, thank you all for your kind comments and support.
I know a lot of the names that commented, Lindy we have been on this journey together and Mrs TerryN to name a few.
I thought I'd be OK as in a way I said goodbye to my 'real' Mum a long while ago and this last year has been so very hard like a roller coaster of events but still I feel overwhelmed by her loss I suppose because it's final.
Sorry to read of your loss Gillybean.
I'm so sorry to hear this, gillybean. I'm glad you were there for her, please accept my condolences xx
Sorry for your loss, Gillybean, please accept my condolences x
Such sad news gillybean. But so good that you were with your mum and that she passed peacefully.
My condolences on the loss of your mother. I am glad that her passing was peaceful and that you were with her.
So sorry for your loss, part of the relief is that your mum is not struggling along the course of this awful disease any longer - I think that's compassionate and so you shouldn't feel guilt. Xxx im glad you were able to be with her.
I'm so sorry, Gillybean. At this time our emotions are an incredibly tangled mess. There is no right or wrong way to feel. But your mother is now free of this horrible disease.
I'm so sorry to read that your Mum has gone. There will be a whole host of emotions swirling around and they will come and go.............. Take care, thinking of you x
Sending my deepest sympathy to you and all your family, and wishing you peace and strength.
So sorry to read your news. Sending hugs x
Mum passed away
My thoughts andd prayers are with you during this time.
I agree it is an emotional time dealing with the second loss of your loved one to this awful disease. When my Dad died in December, I felt the very same emotions. It is a relief to know your loved one is whole again in heaven, but bittersweet for you.
This takes time and just let your emotions guide you. It is a very important part of the healing process.
Hope your ok and find the strength to get back to a some what normal life ,thinking about having some you time...we are taken up constantly by the illness we forget about our selfs
God bless your lovely mum and love and hugs to you
So sorry for the loss of your Mum
It's 2 months since my Mum passed away, I nursed her at home and the grief is so raw, she had to go and your Mum is with my Mum now. Two Stars shining down upon us both.
