All I can say is I knew something was up. She usually calls me everyday, and picks me up every wednesday/thursday for a couple hours. I live with my dad and stepmom. I noticed she hadnt, and I just had this gut feeling something bad had happened to her. This really hit me last night when I took a test for this college thing. Went to school today, had the fucking hardest time focusing. Got called down to the office and saw my dad and stepmom and I when I made eye contact with them I knew my mom wasnt alive. Oh and just to make sure you understand, I loved my mom much more than my dad. Sometimes my mom and I talked about going to the court to get custody changed because I cant really stand my dad. Whats really weird is how well I'm taking this. I cried a little on the car ride home, and then once in the bathroom. The worst part about it is that I know there will be plenty more of it in the future. Well my mom died in her sleep which pleases me because it wasnt painful at all. I dont know the details yet but it probably had to do with all the medicine she had to take. She was 53 I believe, and I'm 16. Support me OT.
