I recently lost my dad (Sept. 13th 2012) this Thursday will be two weeks and to me it still doesn't seem real. He was sick for a long time and knew that this day would one day come. Even though I keep telling myself he's in a better place and no longer suffering I still can't take in that he is really gone.

My dad died Aug 5th, 2012 of a massive heart attack. When i rec'd that call that he had died, i was in utter shock. The death of my dad has been very hard to deal with. The wonderful hope that is found in the Bible (John 5:28,29, Psalms 37:9-11,29) is the only thing that has helped me cope. My heart goes out to all that are dealing with the death of a parent at this time.

My dad died Sunday following 10 days of post motorcycle accident recovery. I am in shock and miss him so much. I hate waking up because I have to process the loss allover. I held his hand as we let his body go.....we asked for them to stop CPR, since it wasn't working. I know exactly what you are describing Holly. My heart hurts so much, and my mom is lost without him. I'm worried we can lose her now too. I barely eat or sleep and cry most of the time. I just want my dad back!!!! :'(

I just lost my father 9/11/2012. I can't begin to express how much I miss him. I was his "baby girl" and I am so lost and heart broken right now. I cry every morning because I realize it's not a bad dream it's real and it hurts so bad.

*big hugs* Chelsea, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I lost my dad in November. He was 43. He passed from an overdose. He was the only person I could talk to about anything. I feel so alone now. None of my friends understand and just tell me to stop thinking about it. I could have saved his life. I knew he was into drugs at the time and I said nothing.

Lost my dad 8/13/2012. He had lived with us since his wife died last year. He was on dialysis and was doing well until he fell 01/11 and broke his hips. The seven months he spent in the hospital and nursing home were awful. I am 50 years old and have a nice husband and two sons. I am not a kid and not alone, but the panic attacks, guilt and loneliness and very hard.

Sara,once again I see so many parallel circumstances in the moms we have said goodbye to for now.Mine always tried to be independent but increasingly tried to have my dad do what she couldn't due to failing strength.Very bitter and depressed .We had a difficult relationship much of our lives but I tried to do the best I could and to move past the hurt she caused . On the dats when she was "normal" during her roller coaster of Lewy body dementia I talked to her about what effect some of her actions had on me and told her I forgave her. I have a sister and a brother but they had issues with her too and left most of her needs up to me the oldest and a nurse.My husband seemed to understand my need to do this and did OK while I had to stay with my parents. We live 10 miles away. Financially my dad could provide enough for her care at home.Initially 1month at a nursing home for rehab used 10,000 of their money but she refused all attempts at PT so it was a waste. She also had a sore that took 6 months to heal! Let's try to remember the positive and know they are healed now and at peace.
