Lost my Dad

I lost my Dad just over 6 weeks ago. Christmas and New year has been so tough. I cant seem to shake the feeling of deep sadness if that makes sense.

I makes perfect sense, sadly. I can’t either. I’m very sorry for your loss. :heart: I lost my dad some weeks ago too and it’s like a black hole opened before me. There are some longer threads for us who have lost a parent that might look for and post in, there’s often more activity there.

No, not at all. I haven’t got any people around me to talk to either and this site has been a great help.

I lost my dad on New Years Eve and my heart hurts so much I think it’s actually broken I can’t see a way through this at all, I don’t even know what I’m supposed to do to get through it. I’m trying to support my mum through this but is just too hard and I feel guilty when I have to leave her on her own.

Hey

I also lost my Dad 6 weeks ago in a road traffic collision and I too struggled a lot, especially on New Years Eve, so please know you are not alone. It’s so hard to think of entering a new year without them, so just take the time you need and allow yourself to feel what you feel. The first year will be the hardest as we will have to experience a lot of ‘firsts’ but please know you are not alone in feeling like this.
Take care.

My heart goes out to you, lost my Dad 4th December he lived with me & Hubby.

My heart goes out to you. I lost my Dad 6 weeks ago to cancer and it was a traumatic and deeply painful journey. I am lost, depressed, alone, scared, every day. After his funeral I became worse. His ashes are coming tomorrow and I am so down, I have no idea how to make myself feel better or hopeful for the future. His car was also taken away today, it’s like im losing little bits of him :pensive:. I would give anything to see him again, to give him his life back, a life he loved and a retirement he was so excited for but never got the chance to have. I think about him every second of every day. Sometimes I feel okey, numb more than anything, but most of the time I feel like I’ll never recover, like I’ll never be myself again or feel happy again. I’m so lost :disappointed: :broken_heart:

Clare, I don’t doubt that your heart is broken. Mine is. My dad is everything to me. Our faces lit up every time we saw each other. I worship him. I’m beyond lucky to be his daughter.

I was thinking last night, that when he died I felt like I did, too. I can’t explain that, but it felt like the worst thing that could ever happen to me.

It’s the worst thing that has happened to me, bar nothing. I used to worry myself over the most trivial nonsense. But I was happy then. Because I had my protector, my best friend, my :heart:, my dad.

I lost my beautiful Dad on 28th December. It was very quick and I was with him until the end. The grief is so overwhelming. I feel like all the joy has left my life. He was such an important part of my life. I can’t believe he’s gone…
I have lots of amazing friends and people to talk to but I don’t want to keep crying or talking to them continually.
Sending love to all :heart:
