    I'm so sorry for your loss. There are certain people in our lives who are our "go-to" people and when we lose that it's significant and it can often feel like we've lost 10 people instead of "just" one. You are still in the early days of this, so I best I can tell you is to give yourself time to grieve this great loss. Don't try to push it aside, or move through it too quickly. As painful as grief can be, it's important that we be patient with ourselves and the process. You have no idea what a life looks like without your Dad in it. And of course it's never something you wanted to know. Now it's about re-learning this whole new life and adapting to this very big change. I find following the loss of a parent what gets most people through is the love itself. The lessons your Dad taught you and the life he'd want you to have. Use those as your guideposts and you may find life will lead you just where you need to be. I'm glad you have found us, and I wish you healing and hope in the days ahead~
