I have just found out that my mother has died - we have been estranged for 4 years but I a 52 so for 48 years she was my Mam - I cannot cry yet as I still feel she let me down when I needed her most and she did nnot want me near her . But I still feel she was my mam and so the loss is sooooo great

I am sorry to hear that you lost your mother. Regardless of the status of the relationship we have with our parents, losing them is difficult.

My mother is still alive but we haven't spoken in years. I'm not sure how I will find out when she dies. It's going to destroy me. I'm really sorry for your loss.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
