Living in a new reality without our person confronts all kinds of feelings about who we are now, without them.
We are truly exhausted physically, but mentally, we are stronger and happier than ever.
How have you been doing? How’s your mental health and wellbeing?
Thank you so much for being patient with us, normal posts will return soon!
Sometimes I am deeply grateful that Mum has been protected from the fear and uncertainty we are facing. But other times, I am terrified and all I want is a cuddle from my mum, telling me it will all be okay.
Remember how Mum would always say to break things down, and to not look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is scary, and so is a year. 365 days seems inconceivable right now, but you can manage one day at a time. Stay in bed if you have to. You don’t have to leave the house, you just have to get through another day.
At the moment, I am dealing with stress through art! It has been wonderful to explore an old hobby that I gave up when Mum passed away.
