Re: Help

I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my dad almost 2 years ago (next month). It was a horrible death and one which shouldn't have happened either. He was also post surgery when it happened. They told us surgery went fine, but complications arose 2 days later....

Nevertheless, the only thing I can offer you is that time makes it better. The first 2 months anything and everything set me off. I lost sleep, I cried, and I was miserable to everyone around me...eventually enough time goes by that it doesnt hurt every minute of the day and it starts to get better. The holidays, father's day and his birthday still hurt- and now the upcoming anniversary of his death has me very sad- but I can look at his pictures nad talk to his wife (my stepmother) and remember the good times.

One thing you can look into is a support group or counseling for grief. It really does help you to have a place to vent around people who "get it" and this allows you to start feeling better when you are alone. You cannot be expected to be "yourself" right now as you suffered a major loss. Being around people trained in grief counseling will also give you some mechanisms for coping.

Dont be too hard on yourself...I promise it will get easier eventually.
