I wasn’t very good last night I was crying thinking of my dad how much I miss him and that I’m not ever going to see him again in our house with me mum I’ve just recently had my 2nd bereavement session I think that is probably why I got emotional last night and upset I have good days bad days and real bad days I spent 51 years of my life with my dad when he passed away it felt like a piece of me died to and it felt like my life fell apart as well I was never ever prepared for losing my dad and how it happened was unexpected and I was dazed to the medical team that were treating him were not concerned either just that to get him a bed on a ward and better then home but that wasn’t to be I’m glad my dad didn’t suffer though as he went peacefully in his sleep I’m just angry I didn’t get there in time and sad that I couldn’t save him as I was my dad’s carer I don’t know how long it will be to I’m feeling abit better but I’ve been run down and not feeling very well ever since I lost my dad which has caused my anxiety to play up as I have an anxiety and depression disorder wot I’m on medication for I’ve got my 3rd session bereavement on Tuesday then 3 more sessions after that I just hope I’m feeling better soon
I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. How you’re feeling is completely normal, and I think it’s important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to grieve, it’s a unique experience to everybody.
