My dad died on Feb 13th of this year. It hasn't even been a month. People around me have already forgotten. If I suddenly burst into tears, people look at me all confused and ask, "are you ok? What's going on?" I want to yell, at the top of my lungs, "MY DAD DIED!!!" Yes, he was 77, and I am 41, but I feel like a lost child now, almost like I am floating, not tethered to anything. Yes, my mom is still alive, but my dad was almost like my moral compass. I have no compassion for other people, and their "little" problems. I have always been an incredibly patient person, but now I find myself snapping and getting angry at the smallest of things. How do I get someone, who hasn't experienced this incredibly painful loss, to truly understand what I am feeling?
