I am sad today

Recommended Posts

Hi, My name is Annmarie and I live in Rhode Island. THIS is my first post here. My mom died 38 years ago TODAY from Lung Cancer. I miss her terribly and feel deprived that she never got to see me mature into an intelligent, accomplished and compassionate woman. I have missed having her with me for all the important events in my life. That was 1968. With all that is known in 2006, why do people still smoke? I myself, have to suffer with the consequences of her smoking. To this day I have asthma and respiratory problems and a chronic cough. My prayers are with anyone who is afflicted with lung cancer. Blessings on the journey, Annmarie

Annmarie,

I truly sorry you lost you Mother at such a young age. I guess you never get over lossing a parent, I lost my Dad 4 mts ago and I'm still so heart broken.

Your post confirmed what I have been saying to people when they tell me I need to try harder to get past it. "I"LL NEVER GET OVER IT"

Take care and Thanks for the post..

Michele :cry:

I'm sorry you lost your mom 38 years ago. My heart goes out to you.

I hate smoking too- it causes many health problems, but not all lung cancer is from smoking. Other things cause lung cancer and there may also be a genetic link as well. You may be surprised to know we have many members here who have never smoked in their life and were never exposed to second-hand smoke!

As the daughter of someone who did die of lung cancer, and also subjected to second hand smoke for 17 years- I get checked regularly- just in case.

Although your mom wasn't physically "there" during the most important moments of your life, I personally believe she "saw" you- and is always "with" you.

Blessings.
