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!

"John, You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad that this counselor may be able to help you. It does help to talk to someone. Almost every time I do, though, I also get the sad faces looking back at me. You're right, it isn't easy…"
"Yes, Betsy, it seems to have taken forever for the chaos in my head to let up and the fog I've lived in for so long to lift enough that I could even think what to do. I'm still exhausted, all the time, but I'm going to put one…"
"This weekend it will be nine months. I wonder, like you morgan, how I missed this population of devastated people. Even as a professional therapist I rarely saw anyone suffering grief so intensely. Where were they? Isolating…"
"I am reading all of the posts here, and you all express things so well. I used to be able to express myself much better, but in the last few months, it seems like the chaos has taken over my brain and heart so much, the chaos of trying to figure out…"
