I'll see you.

by P

My dad died a little over 4 months ago. The day after fathers day at 1 am. He had diabetes Nd never exercised or ate well so after30 years of that it took a toll on his body and his heart gave up after him. They had given him a ton or surgeries before he passed away. They even took his left leg from gangrene. Him and I were never close. He was never a "dad dad" always watched a lot of TV. never really apt time with us (his 7children) I thought I would be ok when he left and I'm coming to find I loved him more than I thought. He is my dad. We are connected As a bond. He did his best for the family and I applaud him for that. I didn't know how this process would be. I am 23 and have never lost anyone. It literally feels like I'm going crazy at times. I didn't k ow it , but I've been ignoring how I've been feeling about my dad and in turn acting out in a different way towards others. Now I am at the point of my grieving process where I see that I need to give in to the grief, if you will. I'm just gonna go easy on myself and cry when I need to. I am proud of myself through the process so far. Can't wait to see what hindsight will show me.

Grief is different for everyone
by: Anonymous

I am also 23 years old. I lost my dad 6 months ago. I have realized every day I grieve a different way. Crying sucks, but I usually feel better afterwards. It's a long journey but I know you will make it. Remember, you are never alone and don't ever worry to ask for help! Good luck *hugs*

Take It Easy
by: TrishJ

Be proud of yourself and thankful that you had a wonderful father. The grief process is different for everyone and you have to move at your own pace.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Be good to yourself and don't be afraid to cry. Tears cleanse the soul. I always feel better after a good cry.
Our loss is keep and the hurt doesn't really ever go away. We just learn to live with it.
Take care and God bless.
