my daddy died when i was 7

(salado )

its been almost 9 years that Ive lost the greatest dad ever. and i cant seem to stop mourning or grieving. i didnt get to attend his funeral and i wasnt aware he was dead until a year and a half later, and everyday i miss him more. what can i do?? i was such a daddy's girl and still am. I miss him so bad and the way he died was an "accident" but i dont really believe it cuz he was working under a big cat truck and the jack broke and fell on him, i dont know what do and no amount of therapy,counseling, or anything else has helped. i just dont know what to do and i just want to give up on life.

Cheyenne I am sorry for your loss of your dad 9yrs. ago. You were so young and not able to process his death. You still needed the nurturing of a father and will feel another loss here. You are now 16yrs. and more mature so your needs will be different and you will be looking for answers.
You say you have tried counselling and therapy and nothing works. You could keep a journal and write out all your feelings and even letters to your dad where you can express yourself in a way that is not only therapeutic but will also help you with your grief.
You could also Pray to God for strength and healing from your loss and ask God to put people in your life to help you cope with the loss of your father. For me having a Faith and belief in God throughout my life has helped me cope with the loss of loved ones. Otherwise I wouldn't get through my loss of loved ones. This is a very hard battle to endure in life. Find one thing each day or week to admire and put in your life to make it better and build on this till you will soon find your life is becoming more meaningful. Start with building an album of your father. Find out from relatives and your dad's friends what he was like and build up your own picture and memories. This is your HISTORY. and everyone needs to know their history. It helps us with our identity and Who we are.
