My Dad and Best Friend
by In Pain
My Dad passed away 5 weeks ago. I was his only son and we were so close. He taught me how to play sports, coached me in many, and taught me important lessons in life. Later in adulthood we continued our bond and spent time fishing and watching sports. He loved my two boys dearly and always looked forward to their visits as they also are now adults. I think the first 2 weeks I was in shock and disbelief he was gone. Then it hit me and hit me hard..he is really gone. The past couple days have been the hardest.. Just about anything I see reminds me of him and knowing I cant go see him or pick up the phone to call him is killing me.
I am strong in front of my mom for the most part as she is also a mess. I am 51 and not handling this well at all. I am most likely going to go to counceling but know I will hear the usual.. it takes time.. but articles I have read state some people , after 5 or more years are still crying.
Sorry for babbling..just miss my dad!!!!
