I recently four months ago, lost my mum, who was 88 years old. I have always lived with my mum, and taken care of her for the past few years. I do not really have any true friends, but have a wonderful dog who has kept me going.
My mum died in my arms, suddenly after suffering a massive stroke, and I cannot deal with the loneliness.
It will be her birthday in November which will be terrible, and then Xmas.
How do people cope alone?
