I lost my dad in April of 2020. He was working, driving and delivering hay. He stopped at a weigh station to weigh his semi truck, and he suddenly had a heart attack and died. We had no idea where he was or what happened to him for about an hour. That was one of the worst hours of my life. Worser still, was when we got the call that he was gone. I wanted to run to him, but I was a 2 hour drive away. Those 2 hours was the longest of my life. The whole time I was praying that they would call back and tell us that they had made a mistake, that he was miraculously alive. My dad was one of my best friends, and I have many regrets regarding his last days alive; petty arguments and not being able to say goodbye or tell him I love him. He was also my mom’s best friend and soulmate. For the last year, my mom has been drinking nearly uncontrollable, and she is constantly lying to me. I feel like I have lost both of my parents, even though only one is physically gone. I have tried talking to my mom about her lying and drinking, and how it makes me feel. She reassured me that she doesn’t mean to, but it keeps happening.
