hey everyone, had a really tough night, couldn't sleep bc i was thinking about my dad a lot. i know it's probably bad but the only way i can avoid crying and being sad is to not think about my dad. when i think about him my thoughts spiral and i miss him so much that i don't know how to handle it. i talk to a therapist about it but i'm still having a really hard time coping. i don't know how to cope with it. he was my best friend, we did everything together and now he's gone, just gone. how do you go on with the day-to-day? sorry, just having a really rough morning and don't know how to cope and my anxiety is really bad too because of it.

Digby I'm sorry to hear that. I can only imagine how hard that is. I haven't lost a parent but I have lost loved ones and you never forget them but only time helps heal the grief. I still cry over loved ones I lost years ago but the crying is a lot farther and fewer between then it was at first. It'll get better for you, I know that it will. Can you spend some time with family or friends? For me, it helps to have some comfort and support when I'm feeling sad about a loved one who I've lost.
