First bday with mom too 

Yup. Today I turned 50. My son took me to breakfast.  That was the highlight of my day.  

50th was even more boring than my 40th.  I didn’t think that was possible. 

I know it sounds petty or stupid but I have always been jealous of those women who have husbands /boyfriends that throw them surprise parties.  Make them feel that they are worth it. You know? 

I have never had anyone ever make a fuss over me. Ever. Not my ex husband or any bf. I always make a fuss over theirs though. Funny how that works. I think that I’ll stop and then they will see how it feels to feel forgotten.  

It’s my 50th FFS.   And I’m in bed at 9:30. 

So done. 


Still wandering 

Life isn’t exactly going great ATM.  Moving again and it really sucks.  

Moms Celebration life  is on Sunday and she’s all I can think about right now. 

I had this tattoo done last week in her name. It’s her country flag (st Vincent) and ours.  And of course, the butterfly is mom. 

Miss u mom. So much. 🦋🇨🇦🇻🇨

Cold rainy day 

Always affects my depression.  As soon as I open my eyes , I think shit here we go again. Will I make it today?   My mom was always trying to cheer me up, she would say let’s go for a drive on the country backroads or let’s go grab an ice cap.  

It’s a weird feeling knowing that except for my son i have no family left.   Such a lonely feeling. He will get married and be busy with his family then what? 


It’s been a while 

Hi mom, it’s me Louise. It’s been 2.5 months now and I still cry everyday. I just wish I could talk to you one more time. Hold your hand one more time. It’s so hard without you. 

Some mornings,  I open my eyes and I just don’t want to go on.  

I’m having trouble remembering simple things here and there and it’s scaring me mom I wonder is this how you felt ?  I’ll never know because you didn’t confide in me. I can see why. I am not telling anyone either. If I end up with LBD like you did, I’ll definitely end my life.  I don’t want to put my family through that.  

I need you mom. You weren’t supposed to leave yet. 

Never forget yesterday 

But always live for today

You never know what tomorrow brings

Or what it can take away

Miss you more than words can say. 

First of many 

First easter without mom.  First of many firsts without her. I always bought her lilies on easter.  Was strange not doing it this year.  Passed by them numerous times in stores and markets and felt like I was forgetting something.  Because she was cremated we didn’t get a plot or I would go plant lillies there.  I’m going to get a memorial tree planted at island lake this summer.  I will put some of her ashes around the base and cover them with soil.  I’ll have someplace to go and talk to her. 

Miss her so. 

Happy Easter mom.  Kiss dad for me.  


My week 

Hasn’t been so great.  What else is new. 

Spent four days in emergency. Did every blood test and every ultrasound and every MRI and every CAT scan known to man. Still no further ahead than I was when I went in. Although the pain is a little bit better today thank God.

My new job is coming along well I’m really liking working for these doctors so far so good fingers crossed. However, we lost a patient this week. I had met him only about four or five times. Because I work for a methadone clinic I see these patients every day, Because they have to come in and do urine tests twice a week and they come in for methadone every day.  Anyways the patient we lost this week, Tuesday to be exact. Well he was only a kid, 22 years old. He just turned 22. That is one year older than my son. He overdosed on Tuesday from taking A drug called Fentanyl. I didn’t know him all that well but from what I did know from meeting him just those 4-5 times, he was a good kid trying to get his life back on track, he leaves behind a 15-month-old son. This drug is stealing our youth one by one. It makes me sick, it makes me so bloody mad I I feel like I could kill the person that is dealing our youth with these drugs.  

He was just a kid himself ffs. I’m so fucking mad. I can’t even begin to believe or imagine how much pain his parents are in. We are not supposed to outlive our children. 

For those that pray,  please say a prayer for his parents and family tonight, thank you.  

Hope you all are doing well. I have a lot of reading to do to catch up.
