I am so sorry for your loss of your dad. My 3 relatives passed in 2009, and this Christmas was painful, because I think we were all in shock the first christmas was not here.
I have had counseling, and been put on an antidepressant. I am more accepting of the facts of life, and oh so much less angry. I am glad to get that out of system. I miss mom, but I feel much stronger as time goes on.
Carol, if there is anything I can leave with you, please understand your dad probably lost his desire to live, after the loss of your mom. Take time to share your story with others, when asked. I feel this was a huge learning experience, and I am so much more sensitive when others loose their loved one.
Let me know how your coping and what is going on. I am so sorry for loosing tract with you. Know I care, Belinda
Carol, I never read your reply in November, and the holidays kept life hectic. I hope your grief process is moving along. I am honored to be your friend. Please, let me know how you are doing! Warmly, Belinda
