My mum died two months ago from terminal cancer. We had a good relationship but in her final week she wouldn’t let me in her hospital room for more than 5 minutes before yelling at me to get out. I guess she wanted to die alone and me being there caused her pain. I have so so much anxiety since she died though and no one I have spoken to has had an experience like mine so I feel very alone in it. Movies/books etc all talk of “surrounding loved ones” as they die, but my mum wouldn’t let anyone be near her. Has anyone had a similar experience here?
