I miss My Daddy So bad

by Priya Gurung

I lost my dad 7 years back when I was 8! He had a mental disease Anesthesia .. and he could not walk or talk or even recognize people! But at that time i did not know anything ..i knew he was sick and he was in and out of hospital for many times but i did not know that he would go away for forever.That day he was hospitalized ,and my mom came home to take me to see him at the hospital, but a phone call came from my brother that he was no more now. My mom was crying so hard and many relatives had come to home. But at that time i did not know what was going on. later my brother told me that he was in heaven now and he would never come back. But a tear did not fall from my eyes because i could not believe that he never would come back. back then i did not know that it would hurt so bad to not have a father and not get his love and affection ! I did not know that there would always be a empty feeling in your heart that no one could fill but dad! I did not know life would be so hard without him! I miss him so badly. I loved him so much and he loved me too. i was always a daddy's girl!! And now its just so painful because i dont even remember his voice anymore because i never got to hear him when i got big! I'm still looking to recover my memories of my dad. Being that my dad passed away suddenly when I was 8 yrs old, I can't seem to remember anything, accept seeing him laying on the bed !

Priya I am so sorry for your loss of your Dad. You were so young to remember or understand what death was all about and all the emotions that went with grief. As you have grown older and more mature you are needing to have the answers you need. You need to know your history and your mother or any other relative should be able to fill you in on all the important information you need to know of your father's death.
You could also talk to a grief counselor who would be able to use skills to help you work through your grief as a child through uncovering repressed memories that may be blocking your grief. It is normal to forget what your loved one sounded like. Forgetting their voice and how they talked and any conversations and behaviour patterns. Most of us on this site has expressed this feeling and how difficult it was to remember. I went through this experience also. But in time as the healing process starts, a lot of emotions and feelings come back and you slowly get to remember conversations that took place. It is sad when children lose their parents as they still need the nurturing that is going to help them as they grow into Adults. If this area is ignored it can cause great emotional problems and patterns of dysfunction. This is why it is so important to do this grief work now. You will then be able to go through life better and mature in the way you need to. Life is tough at best but more so if grief is not resolved. It is possible to recover from grief and reclaim your life.
