Members shea19 Posted February 6, 2012 Members Report Share Posted February 6, 2012 Hi, I am new to the forum and this is my first post. My only child, a daughter, passed away in her sleep 3 months ago. I went to wake her up and she was gone. I have been trying to handle my grief alone as it seems that everyone I'm close to can't handle my sadness. I try to be strong and act like everything is okay, but I am alone all day and all I do is cry. I am so sad, all I can think of is my precious daughter and how much I miss her. She was bipolar and struggled with the disease for many years, actually most of her adult life. She was disabled because of it and her life was very sad. Most people seem to think she is better off now. That may be so, I don't know. But I am not moving forward. I am stuck. We were extremely close and I was really all she had. Her father abandoned her at age 4 and lives somewhere in the Mid East for his work. I didn't even know where to find him to tell him she had died. This breaks my heart because she always held out thinking he would someday get in touch with her. She continued to love him very much. I don't know what to do with myself now that she is gone. I don't know where life goes from here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
