My Dad passed away 3 weeks ago after a 6 year battle with Leukemia.
My Dad never complained of anything and always acted as though there was nothing wrong even up to him going into hospital for a routine check up when he passed away after 5 days in hospital.
When he went in he was talking away and was absoulutly fine but deteriorated suddenly in the last few days after it was confirmed tumours had started growing in his stomach. On the last time i saw him before he went into a coma he was screaming in pain because they were weening him off a pain medication to give him another.
Its somthing that ive struggled to come to terms with since. After his passing i kept myself busy organising his funeral, and looking after things but now that has ended I feel empty.
I did go back into work last week and felt fine thinking get myself back into work would take my mind off things but at the start of this week everything has hit me and ive felt really down (hence writing this)
I thought keeping busy was the answer so if anyone has any advice on whats helped after a loss it would be greatly appreciated.
