I am a mom of a toddler and 9 year old stepdaughter and I work as an assessment clinician at the local community mental health center. I love the outdoors, reading, writing, and creating mixed media art.
About my Loss:
I lost my beloved dad to pancreatic cancer May 2nd of this year (2017). I was beside him for his last breath with my then 14-month old daughter on my lap. Weeks after he died I learned that his wife was spending time with another man in the garage while my dad was in the house dying, and that was too much for me to bear. I had told my dad that his wife and I would remain in each other's lives, but now I find myself completely unable to tolerate even the thought of her. That situation complicated my grief.
