What you are feeling are normal grief reactions (anxiety, heart racing, chest hurting). I lost my mom in September, my dad in 1999. I would suggest that you honor your feelings and if you need to cry, then do…"
So sorry for your loss. What you are feeling is all very normal. Yes it takes time, but things will never be "normal". There will be a new normal as you learn to live with the physical absence of your dad from your…"
