I’ve just turned 26, lost my dad in February. I’m not coping very well at all, pushing people closest away, very moody. He had cancer for the second time, we wasn’t sure how long he had left but passed away after a week in hospital. I live the opposite end of the country to my family so it doesn’t feel like he’s gone, I was luckily there when he died. Although he passed away peacefully on his own in his sleep.
We didn’t speak everyday - he was 70 and not very technological! When I go home my mums the house feels empty but as I say because I’m not there all the time when I do go back I feel like he’s just out the house.
I’ve got a one and half year old daughter who I speak to her about although she doesn’t realise what’s happened. My dad adored her and again luckily he saw her two days before he passed and the nurses said it was his “goodbye day” so I’m glad he got to see her.
Sorry this is more of an offload then wanting advice. I don’t want to upset my mum by going on and on about it when she lives in the house they had together.
Thanks for reading! x
