  1. I lost my father two weeks ago. He raised me because my mother passed away when i was 7. Sometimes i feel like i cant go o, i just don't understand how i am supposed to live with this pain for the rest of my life. It hurts so bad. Sometimes i feel like i cant breathe, i wake up at night panicking. People are there for me but i just feel like they don't understand

    Hi Cecilia, I lost my father too this past december. I share some of the same feelings you do and I know how hard it is.
     
  3. How have you been able to cope?? I am trying to be strong at work and act like everything is okay but i just miss him so much.

    I will be honest with you, it is very hard and I’m struggling. All I know is that we are so strong so much stronger than we think we are and that’s how we wake up everyday and deal with this pain and having to be with people who have no idea and going about our lives. I try to remember the good times and think of how my Dad would want me to live my life and that’s the best I can do right now. That’s all you can, the best you can.

    I lost my dad 6 months ago due to cancer and I am struggling so hard to go on after losing him. I feel like my world has fallen apart. I was so close to my dad and the heartbreak is too much to handle some days. Today is one of those days. It feels like I just lost him yesterday. I replay his last day over and over agian and I wish that I had done more. I don't even rememebr the last words he said to me. I was so stoic then, but so lost now. I cry all the time and I just want to talk to him.
