I Miss My Parent(s)

I created this group for people who may be grieving one or both parents. I lost my Mom and Dad within one year of each other. Dad passed away from Lung Cancer and Mom passed less than one year later from Pick's Disease.

I knew this day would come, but not this soon.

I lost my father when I was eleven, he had a brain tumor that had not been properly handled. Went into the hospital walking and came out in a wheelchair. And since that moment he health declined and…Continue

Not getting the 'gap' is a killer.  Anything less than a year or so can be devastating so Wendy is really on the mark.  I get panic attacks often.  Sleeping was somewhat ok in the first year.

Beth we are here for you but just so you know the symptoms are normal.  Each day of the first 365 days is a grind.

Beth, I can relate totally. I was in a panic for many months. It's been nearly a year since my mom passed and two for my dad. And I sometimes feel panicked now. As an only child my mom was my world. I know your parents are together in heaven. I know our parents would not enjoy seeing the pain we are in. But, it is so very hard.  It took months before I could really sleep like normal. I was a mess.  Know that we are all here for you.

I lost my Dad on May 31st and my Mom on June 22nd this year. I am struggling to understand how everything could change so quickly. I am having difficulty sleeping and have moments of panic where I worry if they are okay. I think this is probably normal part of the grieving process, but I feel so lost and disconnected with the world. I hope they are together again...

The double loss is so heartbreaking! I lost my parents within 11 days of each other. I miss them both so much and the pain is still there everyday!

Thanks Rachel I will try to hang on.  You have a lot to look forward to with your husband so best to you.

Hello everyone! I lost my dad last August to prostate cancer,
and I just lost my mom six weeks ago to Leukemia. My dad battled
cancer for several years, but my mom didn't last a year. She was my best friend. I cannot believe the pain I feel daily. Stephanie, I am like you, I too am scared of losing everyone
that I love and hold dear. I never imagined being on earth w/o my parents. Sometimes I feel so lost, and sleep is not easy like before. I keep telling myself they are not coming back! It hurts.

Anybody here on anti-depressants?

I am curious about how many people here are on anti-depressants and what their experiences have been.  I resisted the offer even when I went through my pending divorce and hospitalization for nervous breakdown 4 years ago I hated the zombie-like feeling it induced and decided to discontinue their use as soon as I was discharged. My pharmacist tells me that it takes at least 2 weeks to settle into the system and within those first 2 weeks it is common to feel "numb" after which you just cope…See More

Missing you, my world, even after almost 3 years

I have not been on this site in a while. When people tell you "time will heal everything", "you have your memories", "it gets better with time", well, they mean well, but it does not! It has been 32 months since I lost my husband of three years to a senseless murder in front of me. I wished when it happen that the coward would have taken me as well and I still do. Two weeks after my husband was taken from me, I lost my Dad as well and have not even had a chance to grieve him. I hate may life, I…See More

Empty Arms

I just wanted to be able to hold you just once more. The kiss in the coffin is as close as I got. I think of you contantly and wonder if I am just dead too. I feel like a zombie walking amongest the living trying to put on a "normal" appearance. I hardly had time to process your cancer diagnosis and suddenly I was empty without you. The kids seem to be adjusting in their own way. I just feel the void of you everywhere.See More
