My mom was in the hospital all weekend. The time for her to leave has come and I’m doing this with anything, but grace. I’m struggling, drowning, sobbing, and falling apart.
I’m horrible with goodbyes. Ever since I lost my first daughter to adoption, goodbyes terrify me. When my raised children were going on visitation with their dad , if they were going to camp or to explore the world like my raised daughter, I fall apart. The trauma of losing my daughter has distorted my sense of safety.
People don’t come back. You don’t get what you lost and there is NO do over. It is what it is and I’m horrible at grief. I think because of c-ptsd , I process everything at its worst.
I’m grateful for both myself and my mom I forgave her. That was a gift to both of us. But, losing her now is destroying me. Just another person I love leaving. Abandonment is in every part of me.
Loss is so hard to explain because it covers so much of my life. I lost myself so long ago , that it physically hurts to lose someone.
My Aimovig isn’t helping this week. Worst migraine of my life. No amount of anything is a balm. I have a million things to say , yet , can’t think clearly enough to convey them.
Just know I feel confused, lost , alone and triggered. I haven’t processed what it will be like without her here. Too painful. Hospice hopefully will help us all through this.
I hope I one day get to the place in the meme. I don’t want to die. That’s about all I’ve got. I suppose it’s something.
People hurting should turn a color so others know. Grief should be seen and acknowledged. But , I know better than that.
One thought on “Forever Goodbyes Are All I’ve Known…..”
Very beautiful. I ve Felt the same many times.
