Father Lost Too Soon
by Rebecca Ann Wang
I lost my father when I was 15 to an accidental prescribed medication overdose (mixed with alcohol). I am now almost 43 years old and working in the Psychology field. I have devoted my academic and professional life to sharing with others my knowledge and passion regarding the need to live authentically and to embrace grief and loss as pathways to continuing personal growth. I have derived daily hope and strength through Buddhist teachings and would like to communicate with others who are still experiencing difficulties with loss of a father.
