Talking for the first time

by Minette
(South Africa)

Hey Im 19 years old this is the first time I actually can talk about this but 7 years ago I have lost my father he was blind and had to much operations it began to get so bad he had an heart attack on the 15th May 2005 5 days before his 55 birthday if you can do the math he was also born in the year 1950... I have no idea what it means but its sort of amazing for me... I miss my father very much everyday a little bit more I saw a photo of him the other day... I couldn't recognized him I felt so bad I couldn't believe it I feel so guilty when i forget about him and if I just go on with my life I know that is what he wants for me but still I cant help it... Today is the 15th May 2012 and I thought I would be strong enough... I miss you so much daddy...

Thinking of you
by: Anonymous

Thank God you have now started to talk about your dad. It sounds like you have tried so hard to keep all the feelings bottled up inside you for a very long time. After my mum died when I was in my early twenties, for so long I used to feel so guilty when I laughed or had fun. Seems like many other people have felt that way too. I do know that talking about how you feel with people you feel safe with really helps. Writing is really helpful too. You are not alone and all your feelings are normal...grief is such a wierd thing. It's different and difficult for everyone but if we are brave enough to talk about it we can gradually heal. May you know how loved you are...Fiona from Australia
