Ahna215 Posted July 12, 2005 Report Share Posted July 12, 2005 I'm new to this forum and website, but I don't know who else to turn to! My step-father passed away on June 8, 2005 at 1130pm. I haven't been able to grieve myself, because I've been trying to keep my mom from falling apart. I feel so guilty at times, because she gave me his cell phone and she calls me non-stop day and night. I don't know how to cope with this and help her with the grief she's going through. I've tried mentioning support groups in our Florida area, but she will not talk to strangers. I work at a hospital as an RN and have been counceled many times reguarding how often my mom calls at work. I need some advice and help. I have not been able to take time and cry yet. There never seems to be any time for me to do this with family ( 3 kids and my dad lives with me), work, and my mom calling every 30 to 60 minutes a day at times. I know she needs someone to talk to, especially anyone who has suffered the loss of a spouse . I read some of the topics here and asked that she would just take a look. Any advice on how to help her and what to say/ do will be greatful. She becomes hysterical with grief over the little things---I having difficulty with this. I just want to be a good daughter and get her through this. Please help, Ahna Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
