Our very precious mum passed away just over two weeks ago. We have had the funeral and scattered her ashes. Today was my first day back at work. I was not looking forward to it. To make it even worse I was going back to a new office and a new line manager. I need not have worried but everyone was lovely. I got home tonight and felt absolutely exhausted. When mum went into her nursing home I was so exhausted I had to have six weeks off work with counselling to follow. Mum reached a point from the end of January when she was very up and down. I found this difficult to deal with and as I did not want to be ill again requested counselling. I have put the counselling on hold till thing get more organised in my new job but I will go back to it. I loved and will always love my mum very deeply and am very proud of how we looked after our mum but it is time for me to think about me. It is time to look after my health. I know that physically and emotionally it is going to take me a long time to heal but I will do it one step at a time. I look forward to hearing from you guys about how you are healing yourselves. Thank you so much in anticipation.
