Hi I'm Josh

Hey, a fair warning to people reading this that what I'm about to share is pretty dark but at the same time its a release for me.
Its currently 18/05/17 its been one day since I watched my mother take her last breath. She died of metastatic carcinoma, or spreading of cancer. Some images we will never be able to erase from our memory and I can't stop seeing her take that last breath.
My mother always worried about others, never ever thought of herself so in memory of her I want you all to know whether you're:
A girl or a boy
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, straight or anything
fat or skinny
happy or sad
whatever your skin tone
I'm here and ill never turn you away.
thank you.:heart:

    Heyy Joshua,

    Welcome to the community! I'm really sorry to hear your mum passed away yesterday, I hope you're okay. There's some amazing support here from our lovely community members, so if there's ever anything you want to talk about we're here for you too. :yippe:
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
