Hi, I just wanted to talk to people who knew how I felt. My mum died 16 years ago when I was 23. It was liver failure and was a very awful way for her to die. I was with her the whole time and she was so very scared - it haunts me still. Then 2 years ago my dad died of pneumonia. It was similar in that I sat with him for a week before he died. I've been doing ok,I know it's good days and bad days and most days are fine. There are some days though when I wake up and feel like it's all an act and really all I want to do is curl up and cry.

I miss their love so much.
