Members jake9898 Posted August 14, 2011 Members Report Share Posted August 14, 2011 Last fall was father was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer. He was never sick a day in his life; never missed work, never smoked or used tobacco; then the first time he gets sick it cost him his life.At the end of October I threw a party for my Mom and Dad in my home town in Ohio. They would have celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary on 8/11/11. The day after the party my mother started feeling stomach pain.The night before Thanksgiving at 5pm we finally tracked down her asshole doctor who told us that my mother had stage 4 LIVER cancer. Thanksgiving day I checked my father into out patient hospice. Thanksgiving night I had to carry both my mother and father up the stairs because they were able to walk themselves. My mother was going downhill so quickly and she was in so much pain ( they wouldn't admit her to the hospitable a couple days before because we didn't have a diagnosis ) that I was giving her my Dad's morphine to stop the pain.I called hospice on Friday morning and they came and took my mother away. She died the Monday after Thanksgiving on 11/29. My father was so distraught from the loss my mom that he went straight downhill and died on 12/23/11 two doors down from the room in hospice that my mother died in. This past month I have developed SEVERE ANXIETY. I sold my parents home that I grew up in; Sold my parents cottage where we spent the summers, and visited my parents grave site for the first time since my father's death.I miss my parents very much and now that I am closing the estate I feel like I have lost my childhood and connection to them as well. I can never go home again. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this type of anxiety or stress; but it is effecting my work and family. I have had panic attacks as well. I simply don't know how to move on from the stress and grief of losing both my parents 24 days apart. Planning both funerals, writing the obituaries, contacting all the people was a nightmare.Any advice would be appreciated.Brad Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
