I lost my dad at 13
(United States )
Hi everyone, I lost my father 5 years ago when I was 13 and he was 52. He died of a rare type of cancer called multiple myeloma. I never new my dad was sick all my life, he was diagnose when I was 2 and was given at most several years to live but he fought it to ensure that our family would be secure. I still can't get over his loss and everything reminds me of him. Also Its hard for me to find meaning in life after seeing him pass. I'm also worried for my mom who has become reclusive and I don't know what she is going to do after I go to college and leave her alone. I still feel quite fortunate to have such an amazing dad who was my absolute hero and the person I want to be.
