Hi everyone, I’m completely new to the community. I’m Caroline, 24, from Sweden. Soon it’s two years since I lost my beloved mom in the midst of covid. It feels like two days and two lifetimes at the same time. My mom was smart, witty, generous, warm, highly intelligent, critical, judgmental, quite frank, and my best friend. She was truly unique and made the everyday life into a smashing party. She loved getting older and adored life. The picture is from her 55th birthday, three years before she died. I seem to do so “well” – I recently graduated law school, got a terrific job abroad, broke free from a toxic relationship, yada yada. It’s sometimes like I need to remind my surroundings of that I’m struggling awfully at the same time. And I feel endlessly lonely in my grief most of the time, although I meet regularly with a gifted therapist. Maybe I can find a safe haven here. Love, Caroline
