Hi, my name is Shawna.
Okay , when i was 12 i lost my mom. Because i didnt have a good relationship with her it didnt affect as much as when my dad passed. My dad was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in early december of 2012. Every day something new would happen, hed have another stroke, lose more memory, or the doctors would tell us some more horrifying news. My dad was pretty much, all i had. He was my everything. He was the dad that didnt have to be there, but did. Biologically i was not his daughter but mentally i was . On December 15th 2012 my father passed away, he had been in the hospital three weeks before he passed and it hurt so bad to see him go and it still does. As of right now im a senior in high school , and live with my boyfriend and his parents because i have no where else to go . Its amazing how in not even 3 full weeks i lost my house and my dad . 2012 was the hardest year of my life , i lost my grandma, my cousin, and my dad . I pretend to be such this strong person but i dont know how much longer i can keep this up, i feel like im ready to lose it . I mean, i have no one there to talk to or anything and i just dont know how long i can keep holding this in .If you have any advice email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
