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.

It's the harsh reality of life but it can kill you from within.

As a child I saw my mother in bed for 17 years and after a prolonged illness she passed away in 2002. My father has been my rock solid support system and has been the pillar of strength for me…Continue

So, I've lost both parents in the last 10 months.  Just lost my mom (both unexptected) in the last month.  IN addition, both my brothers have brain injuries, so I'm the primary caregiver at this…Continue

I lost my Dad less than 6 mths ago. I miss him a lot. I want someone to invent a time machine so I can go back in time till when he was still with me.
I had to celebrate my birthday last weekend without him & I felt so sad because I missed him a lot.

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. :(
