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'm still trying to figure out how this works with posting and talking.

I'm having a hard time getting my feelings out. Wish my dad was still here I miss you so much. I do know one thing if he was still here my mom would be time all these lies about me to anybody that would listen. She's telling everybody that it was my fault he died and then I don't care about anybody but myself.

I lost my dad last February, to several different types of cancer, and ultimately he died of pneumonia. I miss him he is the only one in my family that really loves me. So he never stood up for me to my mom but i know he was upset when they ran me off my mom and my sister. He said they were jealous of me but I don't know why.

For some reason my mom really hates, me and she blames me for my his death. I've known for a long time my mom really didn't care for me and I know this sounds like an exaggeration but it's really not. She lives with me and they they moved in with me a couple years before my dad passed. So my dad made himself a little room in the garage because my mom says he didn't like my dogs and because I would let him smoke in the house. Now my mom blames me for everything and now she's got my son blaming me. I'm just so heartbroken that a parent can treat their child this way.

Mommy, I miss you so much. I drove by our old house and wish so bad I could catch a glimpse of you. The house is all boarded up now, much like my heart. I am not the same person anymore. Everything about me changed when you died.

I can totally understand Jill's loneliness. I lost both my parents 15 years back and i have noone close in my life. Even though number of years have passed, I have never been able to go back to the carefree person I had been before. It's like I'm broken inside and noone can see it and it can't be joined back anymore. Life goes on but I still can't view things the way others do..I find it difficult to connect with anyone who hasn't been through some sort of pain in life. Not sure why God puts some people through a lot..

Really struggling right now. Both my parents are gone. I'm single with no kids. I no longer have anyone to care for nor do I have anyone to care for me. Work is my escape and I'm grateful for that but when I come home the world just seems to come crashing down around me. Feeling lost and alone. :(

Hello! Picks disease is really horrible. One of my friends has it too... They say, there is a stem cells treatment method like the one uctclinic offers. It has to be really effective and working. I hope, it will help people to get over the illness.

My sisters  husband left her 3 months ago just walked out, today she rang me and told me that he's come back, and all I could do was put the phone down and sob and sob, I should be happy for, she was devastated when he left, but all I feel is jealously and anger because she has her man back and I will never have mine back, I hate that I've become this jealous monster, who can't stand to see people happy, this is not who I am ,or this is not who I was, too be honest I don't know who the hell I…See More

I miss you.I wish that was enough to accurately describe how I feel, but it does not even come close. I don’t just miss you; I feel so much more than a mere longing.I miss your laugh, your lame jokes, your hugs, your voice, and your presence in my life. I miss your “hi” text in he mornings we weren’t together, the “be there soon” and the hours of time we spent together just talking and sharing our dreams and hopes. I miss you. I miss you. I miss you. I can’t say it enough.I thought 365 days…See More
