Hi I'm Natalie. I lost my precious daddy back in March. He battled skin cancer for a over a year. He is the bravest man i have ever known. I miss him more and more everyday. Will this feeling of loss in my heart ever stop? Xxx
Good Morning Natalie, you will always miss your Dad. The pain will become less and you will remember him and smile. My daughter is 40. She has come to visit me for a couple of days. We sat and talked last night. Her Dad has been gone for 4 years now. And she still sheds a tear for him. It is more with fondness and a laugh. What would Dad have done Mom. She has got a florist and he was aLways in the trade and she wishes so much she could talk to him. If she has a down day she will still have a cry. Grieving is one of the hardest things I think to bear. It is a dark dull ache in the pit of your stomach. It doesn't go away but it does calm down. Your Dad would want you to get on with your life. He would want you to laugh and have fun, don't beat yourself up about it. Just give yourself pleanty of time. You will be fine. Xxx
Thank you for your reply. Everyone tells me it won't hurt as much as times passes but just right now I just feel the pain of his loss so much. He meant the world to me, my mum, brother and much recently my daughter Mia. He was my hero, my knight in shining armour. Always there for me. I am sorry for you and your family's loss also. Thank you again for your kind words xxx

Its a bit of a post code lottery so dont dont know waiting times i was lucky i got it in a week .in my case it was my partner so it was a lifeline its not heavy but we all have questions and they have some of the answers but you have to stick at it because it can bring it back a bit but it does take you forward and your joining a club realy like on here not one we want to be in but glad we are .paul
I feel the same I lost my Dad in January. It's so hard and there is no fix no way to bring them back. I miss him so much and I'm trying so hard to continue with life and have some sort of normality again. It ebb and flows. I'm pretty sure you grieve forever but as others say in time comes a calmness and a different sort of grief. Life can never be the same but you can find joy again apparently. I feel the saddness you face. Rosie
Hi Rosie thank you so much for taking the time to message me. I am so sorry for the loss of your wonderful dad also. It would have been my dad's 62nd birthday last Wednesday so the last week has been extra difficult. I find myself missing him more and more everyday. Never feels like it's getting any easier xx
Hi Natalie my Dad was 63.
All the firsts hurt so much. Any every other day too.
Do you have any siblings? This place helped me so much too in the early days and now 7 months later too. It's weirdly comforting to know others have experienced similar things. I have my moments or days etc but on the whole I'm some how finding the courage to go on. Some times I feel a tiny bit stronger and then sometimes I feel back to almost square one.
Sending you a huge hug. XxxxX
Hi Rosie your dad was so young too. I am so glad i joined yesterday it has helped so much already. Yes a younger brother he has been amazing sorting everything to help my mum and me. My daddy would be so proud of him. How about you? I have up and downtimes too. It's just an emotional rollercoaster.
Thanks for the huge hug sending you one right back.
Yes too young..and yes an older sister..so glad to have her. Im glad you have your brother and mum to hang on to. Such a roller coaster everyday, nice messaging you, feel free to private message anytime and I'm really glad this place is a support to you too. xxx
So sorry for your loss. I lost my dad 2 years ago to bile duct cancer which came totally out of the blue - one minute he was fit and healthy and the next he was told he’d got only 6 months left to live. I was a real daddy’s girl and it hit me so hard but it does get easier in time. I tend to remember the good memories these days rather than the bad. One of my dad’s sayings was never forget the good times and that’s what keeps me going. I think they never really leave you, I still feel his presence everywhere even though I can’t see him. I’m sure your dad is close by and wanting you to be happy in your life.
Be kind to yourself and I hope you find some sort of peace soon.
