Still in shock!

My daughter, Daddy and Me

My dad died suddenly whilst waiting at the traffic lights in his car. He had just been with my mum and young daughter before going for a run in the park. He never got there. Before the lights turned green, he was gone.

8 weeks later, I cannot accept it, will not believe it, can't stop crying.

He was my daughter's main male role model and she is suffering too. At 6 years old she has lost a devoted Grandad whom she adored.

I miss you so much Dad, I feel like a lost little girl. x

Thank you

Thank you Doreen, I do have a very supportive family, but it is very raw for us all right now. I haven't rung CRUSE as yet, but I have spoken to the Samaritans and that helped. Early days I guess.

Nic I am sorry for your loss of your Dad, to a sudden death. You say you don't believe it, and you cannot accept this. You are in DENIAL and this how we use coping strategies in our life with a sudden death. It is like a shock absorber. I have been in this place. After 5 months of losing my husband I still am having difficulty in this stage of grief. Our Loss is so painfull our minds can't believe that we will never see our loved one again. You will feel lost for a very long time.
You may benefit from seeing a bereavement counsellor (CRUSE). Who will support you in the stages of grief. There is a possibility of becoming stuck in our grief and not being able to move forward. I hope that you have supportive family and friends at this time as it does help a lot.
