    I’m going through the pain of losing my mother very recent, lived with her all my life and cared for her always. It was a difficult time during the 9 months fighting for her and learning about the different aspects of her condition at the hospital with a trachea, ventilator, lung bacteria, kidney failure (it was a very intensive course that I decided to live in order to help her). However, at the end she vomited and aspirated, her pneumonia or bacteria took over her lungs and the antibiotics this time around didn’t work. I’ve tried to start a new job (since I lost my previous one due to her care) just recently about a week ago went back to work in the same career path I’ve been for 15 years (advertising & Marketing).I still experience the ups and downs of the grieving process, at times I get sad and cry, have unanswered questions, I get mad, then one particular friend suggested I should get some therapy to help with my sadness.
