lost my dad at 61

by sarah

my dad went in for a straight forward operation and that was they last time we heard his voice as the operation went all wrong his body went into shock and had to be put on a life support machine. we thought he would make it and come home but after 12 days in icu we had to let him go and turn the machine off. hes gone 7 months today it only feels like yesterday and i still cant believe hes gone. christmas was so hard and people almost expect you to be okay after three months but these are people who have not lost a parent who do not understand. i just feel like a zombie all the time and numb and just not interested in anything really.
i miss my dad so much its not till there gone that you realise how close you are to them and how a big chunk is taken out of your life and your life will never be the same.

I'm sorry for your loss and i sympathize with you. I lost my Dad to lung cancer in Feb. There are no words to describe the horrible feeling! Some days, it seems very surreal and I think I might go mad! But, I wake up in the morning, go to work, do the things I have to do, go to sleep, and then start all over again. Things will never again be "normal". Therefore, we have to find a "new normal". It will take some time. But realize, your Dad doesn't want you to stop life. Take things one day at a time!
