I lost my dad in '04 and my mom nine months later. It's a very awkward situation. I know they would want me to be strong and do well, but it's insanely hard (and getting harder) to deal with the fact that my mom will never smile at me again and tell me its okay, and my dad won't ever show me another thing about working on something.

I am sure that I am not the only one that feels like this. My friends try to understand but since they have not lost both their parents. Like i have said I did not realize how much it would hurt losing both my parents. Especially my mom, i realize how much she supported and loved me!
