Drowned Girl

It sounds like you're doing your best for your mother, still.

I'm so sorry you're in this sad place.



A death in the family can really bring out the ugliness of people. I am amazed at your SIL's behavior. Unbelievable.

I think it is common to want to stay in a grieving state when someone dies precisely for the reason you mentioned. I think it makes us feel more closely tied to the one we lost. I think you will move on when you are ready and I hope you feel that you can grieve as long as you want in the best way for you.


Oh, I'm sorry you have to deal with family crap on top of grieving for your mother. That's hard.

Still thinking of you and your family.


I also buried my mother on Sept. 22nd. I lost my father 4 years ago and now it's as if I'm grieving his loss again as well. I'm an orphan at 50 years old! I came across your blog in search for advice with grief. Not only do we have grief in common, but dumbsh*t SIL's, too! My mother lived with my brother and was awful but it was my mother's choice. My sisters and I had to take care of my mother's things right after her funeral for fear they would be thrown away. DB and SIL were 'grossed out' by my mother at the end. A-holes!! SIL said (born in the same barn as yours, I'll bet) that she couldn't wait to turn my mother's room into her new exercise room. I secretly swished her hairbrush in my mother's bathroom toilet...hee-hee-hee! (Immature, but felt GREAT!) My heart is with you and I understand your pain so very intimately. I teach Preschool and enjoy the young ones very much at this time. Breathe in your DD's zest for does help.
