Losing my step -dad

It’s been 1 week since my dad passed and nothing is getting better. The pain is so very overwhelming and I cant seem to get back to living. My mom and sisters and entire family seem to be moving forward ok but I’m not. I only want to feel better.

Dear Robin

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. One week is nothing in terms of feeling better after the death of someone you love. Don’t put pressure on yourself to get back to normal as you will feel worse.

I very much doubt your mom and sisters are ok too. They will be going through their own grief and turmoil and possibly they are trying to be strong for you.

I know you want to feel better as you want the pain to stop. It’s the worst feeling in the world and I am so sorry

Thank you for your kind words
