So sorry to hear about your Mum though pleased she was peaceful and painfree. Look after you and make her proud (I'm sure she already was) xx

I'm back to this discussion - have to go back to work after taking leave and not been there for 12 days. Zero interest in being there. I have usually been a work enthusiast. But today I will need to go through the motions. Finding hard to find any motivation to get work head on, and dressing gown off.

Hi NellieJ, completely understand that one. Today is the first weekday after losing mum and I'm dreading all the calls I'll have coming in and the ones I'll have to make and that's all before even contemplating work!

Good luck , go through the motions and at some point you'll probably find you'll come out the otherwise. Just think of yourself as Alice through the looking glass! xx

Catcrazy4. I am So Sorry to read that your mom has passed. I hope that you can come to terms with your loss and get through all the hurdles that come with it easily. ( go to you tube and find "mari olsen. now you belong to heaven") listen to it when you have a moment. A friend recommended it to me.

God Bless Bab

Dear Catcrazy4 - hope you manage the day. So difficult to keep going through it with people. I hope you are able to take care of yourself.  I dont know BillyTheDogs song, but here is the one I am listening to to get me through. Sparks - WaterProof.

I just hope the day can bounce off me and not get me down. Sometimes I need to protect myself from the day, and dissolve later.
