Let me start by introducing myself! My name is Anna and I’m 19 years of age. I am very happy that you have found my blog! This blog is about the life that a person has after they’ve lost someone. For me personally, it was my mom. I was 16 years old when it happened and it has been an interesting road ever since.
To say that I had to adapt to life without my best friend, my mom and my example of life is an understatement. The reason which made even more difficult was the way I lost her. Most people lose someone through disease or some kind of accident that maybe could’ve been prevented. But that wasn’t the case for me. I was on holiday with both of my parents in Nepal, when the biggest earthquake, in 80 years, hit the country. We were in the Langtang Valley hiking, which by the way is a beautiful place to be when it happened. We got caught up in an avalanche and got thrown around like small, light pebbles. My dad broke his foot, 3 ribs, a shoulder blade, 2 bones in his neck and his sternum. But we only knew about his foot, the rest we did not know until about a week after the earthquake when dad got home and got the fullest check you could imagine, in the hospital. But my mom had worse injuries. After I dug her out of the snow, in which she was covered, she screamed of pain with every move that she made, I figured that she had broken her ribs. Unfortunately, I got separated from my parents and got carried by 2 amazing sweet girls from Sweden. What I didn’t know is that my mom died less than 1.5 hours after I’d left her. We found out afterwards that she was bleeding in her brain and that she had internal bleedings as well. No hospital in the world could’ve saved her from her fate.
Through this blog, I want to help people deal with their grief. I want them to know that they are not alone, and even though no situation is the same, I can relate in some ways, more than others.
Don’t worry, this will not be the sad blog that it sounds like right now, it will also have some of the highlights that I have had since I lost my mom.
I hope you stay and read the next posts that will be coming regularly!
