Sorry for your lost, I also lost my dad three years ago and im still hurting I know what your going through , just think of all the good memories you had with your dad and it will put a smile on your face. And don't forget were ever you are your dad is watching over you think of him as your guarden angel. Ask god everyday to comfort you and you will see things brighter. Take care. god bless

Sorry for your loss
by: Anonymous

Sorry for you loss, My Daddy died 9yrs ago and the pain is still so real. I know what you mean about people and friends(so called friends) telling you to get on with it or if your having a bad day they wonder why!! Let me tell you I now see that these people who ask you this do not have a clue how it feels to lose someone . My life has never been the same since.. You never get over the fact your daddy is gone but you seem to just learn to life with it. You will work through this pain in your own way, Dont let people bully you into getting on with it, you will in your own time. Remember those gone before us will always watch over us!! Take care.

Hi Sarah,

I lost my dad 6 years ago and my mum 6 months ago. Each and every time i have felt as you described - that is hard to be with anyone except your boyfriend who lets you be. It is so sad to see friends (not all but alot) either tell you to get over it, or tell you a story of someone else who has lost what they call worse when you have hust lost your mum and dad! The good time friends do disappear. One thing that i do know is in time (well i know this from my beloved dad dying) it doesn't feel as awful and in time you will really know the handful of people you can count on. The rest is dross. Your perspective changes and you will find more people who get you for they have been through. Take care of yourself as the priority in these tough times.
