My dad

Hi I’m new here. I lost my dad 4 years ago next month and struggling with Father’s Day and his anniversary coming up. I find people still step on egg shells wether they should talk about him. I feel jealous of other people talking about their dads or seeing other people with their dads is that normal? I was a proper daddies girl and miss him very much I was only 18 when he passed and still struggle badly to this day.


Hi @Tianna, I’m so sorry for the loss of your dad, my heart really does go out to you :heart:, I lost my dad 6 years ago to lung cancer he was only 52 and it broke me, everything you have said I can relate to as I too was a daddy’s girl! What your feeling is completely normal and apart of grief, its ok not to be ok and its ok to feel how you do and grief has no time limit and we also grieve differently too, there is no right or wrong way, this grief can be so overwhelming and consuming at times and it can be hard to find a way through it, I hope by being on here can bring you a little comfort in knowing your not alone in all of this and that this lovely community will try and help support you the best we can, I was 27 when I lost my dad but you being so young is heartbreaking, please feel free to message back lorraine xx

Thankyou for taking the time to reply :heart: I’m so sorry about your dad he was young too, I’m always at the end of a message so you can message me anytime, I know its such a difficult journey sending you lots of love and strength xx

I totally get this it’s 3 years since I lost my dad. With Father’s Day coming around I still feel lost and eggs shells totally. My brother seems never to talk about my dad or death etc if I mention it he struggles it up I know everyone takes grief totally different ways but sometimes I would like to talk. Since having councillors I found writing things down really helps and keeping a diary in which I talk to my dad everyday in this. It’s a way of giving him alive, I wish I could hug him again :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
