missing myhero

My dad passed away at the age of 75. It was August 2012 the day my life has changed dramatically. I recently passed a year. I haven't gotten back on my feet by getting a job again. I quit my job to take care of him, my husband didn't want me to have any regrets with his sickness so I spent three weeks with him in Florida to help take care of him. He had stage four cancer, brain tumors and lung cancer. I was so positive with it and thought he was going to get healed, actually they were disolving. He came up to Nh to celebrate his birthday which was awesome and left to go back home. I was planning to go back to Florida to help him but he had a heart attack a month after he came to NH. I miss him dearly and just need to get back on my feet again, I know he would want that. He was my hero and best friend. We were extremely close. I was a daddys girl we used to talk many times during the week. I would tell him everything.

My Dad was my hero as well
by: Anonymous

My Dad died in June at 82. He had Parkinson's Disease. It progressed very quickly in his last year to the point where he needed diapers and a catheter, as well a wheelchair. This was a man who could lift the front end of a car!!! Everyone keeps telling me he wouldn't have wanted me to be so sad, that he made it to 82 and I should be happy, etc. but I am just utterly bereft. He was the absolute best man I ever knew and I don't see how I will ever get over this loss.

This week my dad would have turned 77. I have been crying alot lately. Oh how i wished I could call him or give him a birthday present. Not going to happen. I have to hold on to the memories that I had with him. Things have been hard lately. I miss him so much you were my rock daddy i could tell him anything not the same with my mom. She doesn't listen like you dad. I am thankful I have her left. Trying so spend as much time with her but she says no to me alot. Not my sister though. I don't get it and not going to figure it out but it does bug me. Some days i think i need greif counseling. IT will be 2yrs shortly some days i feel like crawling under a rock and wished it was a bad dream. Love yah dad

Missing my hero dad. I have changed so much since his passing this has been tough. One minute it feels like i am doing so much better and definitely the pain has lessened since the beginning of this grief road. I never knew i had so many tears that i could cry. Oh how I miss him and wish i could call and tell him about the kids, anything just to hear his voice again. To tell him I love him what an amazing man my dad was. I just go to 15 months recently and dont go to the cemetery as much as i did before. I try to do my best as a wife and mother. Need to get back on my feet and work again I know he would want that. My mom is doing grief classes and is lonely without him. Love you dad you will always be me hero. Daddys little girl

Death takes so much out of us emotionally, and physically. I couldn't function for the first 6 months. But I nurtured myself back from grief and it has been a good healing from doing this. I lost my husband of 44yrs. 18 months ago to lung cancer and he accumulated many others problems from this including blood clots, daily injections for this, pneumonia, shingles in his eye and the suffering continued for 3yrs. before his passing away.
I am not surprised you are unable to return to work or even normality as it once was. None of us who has lost a loved one can imagine what this would be like. It is an experience we will all go through. But the suffering from grief is so very painful. Pacing oneself and taking one day at a time are all helpful to coping with grief. It does get easier with time. But our lives will be altered forever. We just find a new way to go on in life. But it still hurts. I wish you better days and months ahead.
