Hi All, Hope you are all doing ok. I came on here a bit last year when my mum died. She died on 7th February last year, after a long illness with Alzheimers and VD and finally, pneumonia. It was very hard at first and then in September, after talking on here, I had some bereavement counselling, which did help and I picked up and stopped feeling so exhausted. Sadly, I felt rubbish again over Christmas and my 10 year old daughter had a chest infection in January and is still coughing now! She was off of school for quite a while and I think being in so much took its toll. Obviously we've had the year anni of mums death and today mothers day and I'm feeling really tired again - it seems more physical than emotional - I think I'd rather be crying than endlessly drained of energy. I have booked another counselling session for a weeks time, but finding less to talk about. Maybe it's partly the time of year, but feeling this run down after one year of mum dying - doesn't feel normal?
