Lost my dad 17 years ago and still grieving
My dad passed away 17 years ago when I was 12 (he was 51) from cancer. All my teenager years I have spent them, forgetting and ignoring what happened and protecting as much as I can my mum. I'm now 29 and struggle in my personal life. I have been putting my partner through all the different stages of my grief, I'm now going through the anger stage ... I have been transferring all my love, admiration, anger, sadness, blame onto my partner for years which is so wrong. I know that I have to do something about it now in order to be able to move on with my life, I have already wasted too much time. You have to (if you can) seek for help straight away and talk as much as you can about it otherwise it will catch you up ... even 20 years later you will still have this pain in you which blocks you for doing everything ...
