Apparently according to the DSM 5 you have to be over grief in two weeks now for it not to be considered a mental illness. :([/QUOTE]

Well, that's horseshit.

It can, of cos, take an entire, whole, long, convoluted, marathon of a lifetime, to get over and live with, being diagnosed as having something in the DSM - for all the good it does :)

Pretty destructive crap for a document, updated and amended so regularly. It's had more drafts that a bog standard work of fiction, returned many times, by many publishers :)

Mother's day was in march...?
The dates are different in the UK and the USA :)

There's also some confusion between Mother's Day, and Mothering Sunday. The former celebrates and honours mothers. But the latter is to mark the notion of the Church as mother, nurturing the congregation and keeping them strong and guided in their beliefs, as a mum would take care of her babies :)
