Midnight Posted March 17, 2008 Report Share Posted March 17, 2008 My father passed away three weeks ago at the age of 95 from a massive heart attack. I know he lived a good life but it still hurts. People are telling me to get over it, even my sister said its time to get over it. Well I am trying to. But I am so angry and I know that is part of the grieving process. I have not been sleeping well, not concentrating, forgetting things, and just feeling like a basket case. So I went to my doctor because I was so tired and could not function. He put me on this pill to help me sleep and it sure has helped. I wake up and feel like a new person, however three days ago I ran out of the pills and I am back to not functioning. I am scared to tell my doctor that I am not better, but he has has been so good, and so compassionate. Should I tell him the truth that I am not better. People think I should just snap out of it. I have never had someone who I was close to or loved so much die and I am not coping too well. I cry any time of the day when I think of him or hear a sad song. I keep seeing my dad in the bed lying there, before he died he was gasping for breath,I thought he was in pain but my doctor said it was a reflex - that he did not suffer. I cant let people see me grieving because they dont value my dads life the way I do. Sure he lived a great life, but I miss him so much and life is so void without him. Should I tell my doctor what I am going through, my sister said keep it up and he will put me on antidepressants, I am not depressed I am in mourning and no one understands this..
