Sophiec123 Posted November 9, 2019 Report Share Posted November 9, 2019 Sadly I have lost my dad just over a week ago after a long fight with cancer. My dad fought until the very end and I will miss him everyday, he was the most amazing man I know. Him and my mum were married 36 years and myself and both brothers have all moved out. They spent every minute together and now my dad has gone, I’m not sure how my mum will cope. I have been staying back at home to support her but worry about the day I have to move back to my own home where I live with my partner. I can’t stay at home forever but cannot imagine how she will feel the first night she stays here alone. She couldn’t hold it in any longer about how upset she feels and broke down to me last night, about how she worries about being alone and how sad it in my dad has now gone, which kills me. How can I help her realise she will be okay and how do I go about leaving her alone to stay in the house going forward forever? Please help. We are a very insular family and a strong one, specially my mum who never gets emotional, so for her to be upset I understand things must be bad for her - as that’s not her personality at all. I am very much the same and worry things will hit me again worse than before, as now things don’t feel real and I still can’t believe my dad has gone. As my dad was unwell for some time I feel I began to mourn him before he died and even now still don’t feel it’s true or understand it.
