I still can’t believe it. I was with him when he died and I’ll always be thankful for that. When I look back on that day it feels so surreal. I don’t feel any emotional attachment to it really. It was hard when he died but it’s been over a month now and so I’m really starting to properly miss him. I can’t stop thinking about him and I talk to him all the time. I just miss him and chatting with him.
I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad. I’m sure you were a huge comfort to your Dad and you will never regret that precious time with him. It’s a true gift even in the pain of everything we have to face.
Missing normal chats with people we love is so normal. I don’t think anyone gets used to that feeling. If it helps, don’t feel bad about talking to him - it’s quite a healthy thing to get out how you feel. I hope you have people to support you? This forum is great. Keep talking if you need to x
