Only 4 weeks ago she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Last friday, she was told that the pain she was suffering from arthiritis (a secondary condition) could be treated, but not together with her cancer medication.
She had suffered from depression for years. We had a difficult relationship. Right now I'm still in shock and don't know what to think. I'm sitting at home, waiting for the coroner's office to call with results from her post-mortem.
She was 59. Somehow you expect that a parent will be around for longer.
I feel the way this has happened is going to haunt me for the rest of my life.
