My father died after a Sudden stroke and I'm only 19
(Surrey. BC, Canada)
So my dad and I never got on well (probably because we were so similarily strong personalities). He mannaged to get me an application for the place where he worked (the longshore) and my name was drawn. We were so excited and he was telling me to go to the gym and he took me down a couple times for the last training sessions at the job site.
My mum and I got a call from his work place telling us he'd gone to the hospital september 9th 2012. They told us he had to have brain surgery or he'd die at hospital from massive arterial rupture/ stroke in brain from high blood pressure. Long story short, they told us he wasn't ever going to get back to the normal loudmouthed but lovable guy he always was and that we had to make a decision. After struggling with it and knowing he was probably gonna stay in coma forever, we pulled plug.
My mum feels like she refrets it (he died on sept 14 2012).
We miss him so much and now I have nobody to turn to and I'm the only person struggling at the longshore to get work without a single person I know down there to turn to for help. That was what dad was for.
It has been less than 4 weeks since I had a dad and me and mum feel so lost (and mums not in great health either (she's 62) dad was 67)He would have been 68 oct 7th.
I don't need councilling I just want help (and what's more, our house is in demo as the day after he died we found out we had a massive water leak under house and mould). I'm broke, fatherless, and have no Idea what to do. How am I gonna make ends meet and who will help me? I have no one.......
