Guest Ann B Posted March 29, 2006 Report Share Posted March 29, 2006 I just lost my dad unexpectedly on the 13th of March. I had just gotten home from having surgery (had melanoma on my leg - turns out to be ok) He had some chronic health problems, but I don't know if we just got used to them or what. I am an only child and single at 36. My mother is in a nursing home due to a brain tumor and is a step away from persistent vegitative state. My dad was my rock, and I'm having a hard time just making it through the day, much less the financial estate planning that goes with it and having a challenging job.It also seems like everyone is very supportive for about two weeks and then your time is up - you should be better by now. And my family is (an 84 year old grandfather) is being downright evil about some of his belongings. I am more than gracious about giving stuff to anyone who wants it, but stealing a dead person's possessions? What is up with that? Why does death bring out the greed in people?I also saw another post that said something about being absent minded and having "brain fog". I slept right through a blaring alarm clock this morning and missed a doctor appointment.I just am beside myself with grief. I already take antidepressants and occasionally see a therapist, although they have never been much help. I always feel as though I am entertaining them more than anything.Does going somewhere and screaming out loud help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
