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.

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.

hang in there danny...it is hard to cope with but as time goes by it gets easier....the numbness is definitelya factor, i just want to pick up the phone and call her, life is so fragile....im young but get depressed that im getting older....i want to live a very long wonderful life with my soon to be husband

Rachel I am with you on this.  Unreal it is and the numbness factor comes in every now and then as I do my routine .
