My Dad is very ill

He had a brain haemorrhage on the 8th September. My mum and dads dog died on the 13th august. Ive never known so much crying and feel bad as my Dad is still with us, although unlikely to ever be himself. He is often asleep and can only speak a few words. I’m terrified for the future, regret the past and hate the present. I love him and wish I could fix this. I also don’t know how i will ever get over it or stop crying. So much pain and regret

Hi @Philippa

I’m so sorry for your situation. I’ve seend your post and sending strength and a virtual hug. You’re not alone and do reach out.

I lost mum in Nov 23 and Dad 4 weeks ago. :cry: it’s really hard and nothing prepares you.

Hold him tight, say you love him, and say what you need to say. Mine died suddenly and I didn’t get the chance.

He knows you are there. Don’t regret as there is nothing you can do to change the past. Be present in the now even if all you can do is hold a hand and wipe his face.

Reach out if you want to talk. You’re not alone. Roberta X


Crying is normal. Let it out.

Thank you xx
