I will be 49 yrs. old on July 21 (the first birthday ever without my Mother). She was not only my Mother but my best friend and I feel so lonely and lost. I have six children and a wonderful husband who have been supportive of me but right now I don't want anyone around me. I am so depressed and all I want to do is sleep and sit and cry. I am the oldest of six children and my Dad has never had much of a relationship with any of his children even though him and my Mother were married 51 yrs. on June 1. I feel responsible for keeping everyone together being the oldest and the one my Mother always depended on but right now I just don't have the strength. I feel guilty and don't know what I need to do.
