annerichardson replied to Sweetisabelle's topic in Loss of a Parent (Mother or Father)Hey Sweetisabelle, I feel really sorry for you. I know what it feels like to lose a parent. I lost my father when I was eighteen. He was my everything, and I was confused and not sure on how to live after the death of my dad. I even thought of ending my life. I was in University then, and I decided to discontinue my education. My brother realized that I was in a state of depression and took me to a psychologist in Toronto. The counseling over there was really effective and changed my entire concept of life. I am thankful to the psychologist over there. My advice to you is to continue your education at the University. Getting your mind engaged in something helps you to divert your thoughts. Meeting and talking with friends will help you to relax. When you sit idle at home, your mind will become obsessed with unnecessary thoughts. All the best.
