Parent Loss / Re: Introductions
« on: November 02, 2015, 07:50:08 PM »
Hi, my name is Jamie and my dad died October 20th.
My dad had me when he was in his late 40s so I always knew that my parents were going to pass away before my friends parents did, but I always thought I would have a chance to say goodbye. He died in a house fire caused by a space heater. Despite him being 72, he was more active than me and I'm 24. His funeral happened within 3 days of death because I am a graduate student who lives across the country. I keep telling myself that it's ok for me to be back at school so soon because that is what he would want me to do. He was so proud of me and always told me that education comes first.

I feel guilty for being back, my friends and professors were shocked when I was back at work and school last Wednesday. I feel like I should be crying all the time, but I can't.

I am sad, I'm angry, I'm depressed and lonely. I love my dad sooo much. I was truly daddy's little girl.
