so sorry to hear about your dear dad. You are bound to feel like this, there is no one like your dad.
I have 3 sons who lost their dad /my husband over a year ago now and they are just coming to terms with their loss,he was just 59 when he lost his fight against this cruel disease. I too still miss my dad who passed away over 20 years ago at the age of 67.
Have you got someone to talk to about how you are feeling? Family, friends? But you can come on here any time, there is always someone to listen and help you through.
Thinking of you at this sad time
love jmd xxxx
I know how you feel - we lost dad in May - 33 days after diagnosis - still doesnt feel real now.
I am very sorry for your loss - there are not the words to comfort you really you just need to take one day at a time and eventually start to remember your Dad before the PC and can only be grateful you had him for the many years you did. Small consolation.
Its just unbelieveable the rapidness of this condition with some people - families are left in total shock and the patient never has time to get their head around what the hell is happening to them.
No signs and nothing you could have done to change events
Just do some nice things with your family in memory and as the other comment says use this forum to vent - as there will be days you are so angry
Take care and again I am so sorry for your loss x
I know how you feel I Iost my husband in April and sad is the word that sums me up. No matter how many people you have around you nothing can fill that emptiness you feel.We only had 7 weeks after my husband was diagnosed till his death and I thought my heart would break . No matter how prepared you think you are nothing can prepare you for the grief that you feel and only someone who has lost a loved one can understand.Will I ever feel happy again, I hope eventually yes but it will take time. Give yourself time to grieve talk about your Dad when you can, it is very hard but hopefully in time the crying will get less and the happy memories will come for you and for me in the meantime take care xx
Nothing quite prepares you for losing a parent. I lost my 60 year old mum to PC 6 months ago and I still have trouble believing it. Here if you want to talk. x
