Because I'm the Mom

war on grief

Thank you for this. After losing so many people in my family, I thought I had it "under control". But the biggest blow was the loss of my 34 year old daughter. A walking coma... that is true grief. It will be five years on tuesday and this is a coma I will never come out of.
