I lost my father in 2003 to cancer. I was 20 at the time, im 27 now and I feel like its finally catching up to me. Ive always been the type of person to hold things in and being the only child I had to step up and be the man of the house. I had to be strong for my mother. Ive never been able to show emotion and I think some family members might think that I am cold. Recently when I watch some programs (intervention in particular )when the father reads his letter or shows emotion for his child I find myself crying uncontrollably. I can watch the same types of programs with my family and not shed a tear. I find myself becoming overcome with emotions that I do not know how to handle. Can someone please help?
