I am so sorry. My dad died of lung cancer. My father in law died OD Alzheimer's.
It is all just wrong. Death is such an enemy.
Here is a link to an article about grieving. It also has links within it that discuss the subject of death,…"
I am so sad for your heart being so broken. I know exactly what you are feeling. Take one hour at a time. Cry....let your feelings flow. We grieve as we love - deeply. How blessed you are to have a father who loves you and whom you love so…"
"I can't believe I have found myself here. My dad died Feb. 5th of lung cancer. Before 9 months ago, he was the healthiest 73 year old I have ever known. It is very hard to believe and accept that he is gone, as for the last 9 months it has been…"
This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
I am so sad for your heart being so broken. I know exactly what you are feeling. Take one hour at a time. Cry....let your feelings flow. We grieve as we love - deeply. How blessed you are to have a father who loves you and whom you love so much! Note I use present tense. He is still your dad. You are still his daughter. He is just in another place. Another part of his journey. Life does not just stop when we leave these bodies. Imagine where he is and perhaps that will help you process your missing his physical self. My mother has come and visted me and it was amazing!

"Dear Rakshi Chaundry,
I want to encourage you to follow the grief forum when you can. It has helped me over the past 8 months after the sudden death of my wife of 25 years. The biggest help has been to learn I am not alone and I'm…"
"Hello Marie Gibson,
I just noticed that it seems no one has welcomed you to this support forum. I wanted to express my sincerest condolences on the loss of your husband. Those words seem so trite and I've heard them so many times.…"
"Today I woke up crying as I am leaving for a month to go to my country of origin, Bangladesh on Tuesday. When I would go on these long trips (I have family obligations to take care of there), Joseph and I would start feeling depressed for a week or…"
I feel much the same as you do -- this life ended for me the moment my husband died, and I want my stupid body to just stop, so that I can either die and be with my love (if an afterlife exists) or die and just cease to be (at which point…"
"Having to go to work is the only thing that forces me up in the morning. Crying in the shower is not how my life used to be. So recently- just 4 months ago- my life was normal! And now with each day that passes the person I used to be and the…"
"another day without marry still haven't seen her filter her her nothing haven't even dreamed about her she was such a believer makes me wonder if she was right it's just so lonely and empty without her I just don't know what to…"
I am awake again, and have some anxiety. When thoughts that I know just lead to pain have been entering my head, I try to change the subject. Not having much luck right now, but I will continue doing it. I need to start to prepare for a trip on Tuesday. Once again, I am going to attempt to return to work. I failed a few weeks ago when I tried. The physical and mental discomfort I felt while I waited at the gate for my delayed flight, led to a breakdown at the airport. Since then, I had a…See More
"I had a dream about hubby last night. He was standing in front of me head down so I could only see the top of his head. He was wearing the suit I had him laid out in. I thought that I should go hug him and then I woke up. NO clue what/if this means…"
"Sara like you I was with my wife for 37 years we work together we did everything together I can honestly say I know exactly how you feel its been almost 13 weeks now still seems like yesterday I'm not sure how your husband passed mary had a…"
"Dear Lynn, All your lovely ornaments your husband sounds as thought he was as thought ful as my Mark. I sent a message to you but I think it got lost in the cosmos somewhere. I thought I would tell you I had spiritual healing on Friday and I…"
Yes, on several occasions I "saw" Joseph. Not to offend anyone, it's how ghosts are described. After all, the word ghost comes from the German word Geist which means spirit. Joseph's spirit has visited me a few…"
"I think that the shock of losing my husband and the anger at my stepdaughters is wearing off and allowing me to really feel the pain of losing my husband.
I forced myself to go to his grave on Thursday for the first time. They couldn't get his…"
"I finally forced myself to go to my husbands gravesite on Thursday. His stone is not set, and I didn't want his grave to be bare, so I ordered a plaque with his picture and his name. I took lights and wind chimes and flowers and did my best to…"
"Part 2--So why have I fallen so far into the hole? Anyone's guess will work. I am pretty much convinced at this point that that at my age, no biological children, an estranged stepdaughter, no diety, family that are living their own…"
"Part 1--Sorry to sound so defeated. I have pushed forward for quite awhile now. I did it through the first year. I trained a new gal for y position, packed up 35 years of living, sold our home without an agent and moved 1700 miles…"
"Within a period of 6 wks - It was a professional that killed my Mark. It was a professional that prescribed his brother the wrong meds and damn near killed him. It was a professional that prescribed me antidepressants which made me even more sad and…"
