Members Hanna28 Posted September 10, 2012 Members Report Share Posted September 10, 2012 Hello everyone. This past June I lost my dad (69) to mesothelioma after a three year struggle. Throughout the last year of his life I cared for him on the weekends and his girlfriend cared for him during the week. Additionally, for the past ten years I have been the primary caregivefor my mother. I have been told 17 times she would not make it out of the hospital. She is a fighter.I work full time and take care of my house, my mothers house, and am now the executrex of my fathers estate. I feel as though I don't even have time to be sad about the loss of my dad yet deep down I feel so empty. How do you all do it? How do you just go on with your everyday lives after losing someone you were so close to? I am at a loss. I almost feel like an orphan....strange as that may sound. I have looked for grief counseling in my area but the closest is over an hour away and I just don't have that kind of time in my days. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
