“Not being with Mum at the end. She died 2 hrs after I left her, it haunts me still”

“Not calling my Dad the night before he suffered a fatal heart attack, just because I had only lost ½lb and I didn’t want him to be disappointed”

“My cousin rang me on Christmas eve and I really rushed the convo because I was cooking … she killed herself on Boxing Day”

“Not staying with my mum to the very end. I was afraid and needed to go home to my kids. She died overnight. I forever fear she was in fear. The hardest part was not the decision, but coping with the ‘what if’ afterwards”

The truth is that a) we all try to make the best decisions possible using the information available at the time, and b) we all mess up. But it doesn’t help the pain to point that out.

She's expressing her sorrows in bold prints. Ladies are more expressive. I'll lend her a shoulder to cry on.
