RE: still grieving after 4 years

I was just searching Yahoo and found this GardenWeb site by chance. I was actually looking up estrangement issues as I just broke ties with my 32 year old daughter today, (Im 55). She has my 2 Grandchildren, Gavin 5 and Caitlyn 1. I will miss my Grandchildren terribly, but she only allowed us to see them a few times a year anyway because were not good enough for her. She has been dis-respecting me for years and I finally decided enough is enough.
Anyway, when I just read your post, I just wanted you to know that yes, it is normal to still be grieving after 4 years. You may never get over the loss of your Mother. I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. My Mom will be 82 years old on 06/28. I lost my Dad on 06/18/2003 after he had been in a nursing home for 4 awful years. My Mom and Dad had been married for over 50 years. He served in the US Marine Corp for over 27 years and retired a LT Colonel when I was around 18, I think. Anyway, I still miss him today, even though we were not close at all. My parents were actually quite abusive.
I believe that my Dad visits me in spirit quite a bit, have you had any experiences like that? I find them comforting, but some times sort of annoying.
I just wanted you to know that there is someone out here in cyber space who does care how you feel, okay?
You may want to talk to your Doctor about your depression. I am taking an anti-depressant, generic for Zoloft for years. It seems to help, although it will hurt your sex drive!
Take care and keep your chin up. Please know that your Mom is in a better place!
