My dad died a sudden accident, on April 5th 2010. We were very close and though everyone else has moved on i cant seem to get over his death even though it was 3 years ago, bc in my heart it still happened yesterday. My dad was a logger everyone loved him , but one sad morning at 7:30 A man who was on drugs ran over him and killed him on impact. I was so furious when i found out i grabbed mt dad's gun and went over to that mans house my daddies brother attacked me and i layed there and cried i was 12 years old then now im 14 and no matter how hard i try i cant seem to get over the fact he wont be coming home

Amber I am so sorry for your loss of your dad so suddenly to a vicious attack. You are so young at 12yrs, to handle this loss on your own. Because you are now 14yrs and still suffering such pain and grief you really now have to consider seeing a grief counsellor. These are skilled people who will work with you to help you cope with your loss and help you get into a more normal place in your loss. You will move more quickly in the healing process. You need to find the right counsellor for YOU. If not keep trying till you find someone you can know is helping you move forward. I hope you have other family and friends who can also support you at this time so you are not left alone with your grief.
You are so young to live without a dad. You are probably at school and still in full time education. If you have a school counsellor talk to them. Grief takes a long time to recover from. There is no set time for anyone. The type of death and the age and the relationship also affect the grief, so don't let anyone tell you that you should be over this loss. This is not true. You will CRY a lot. This is the biggest part of grief and loss. It will hurt for some time. If there are any male relatives in your family like an uncle. Allow them to mentor you for a while till you are able to be in a comfortable place. You need a male role model to help you as you still need nurturing. May God comfort you in your grief and loss of your dad. I hope that life gets better for you in the days ahead and that you will move forward better with skilled support.
