I'm sorry about your Father and the other worries/fears tha are in your heart. I know this migt sound crazy but I used to pray to Mom who had passed when shortly afterwards other things piled up. Someone told me that since she was not in our form anymore, that she (my Mom) was now in a positon to really send healing our way, and that she probably wanted to more than anything. So I would talk to her. I started seeing those white butterflies whenever I thought of her. I also think she's sending me strength or jus a hello someimes when I find pennies heads-up anywhere. I do have a strong sense she is free and in much better shape than I...which was not the case b-4 she passed. If none of this is helpful, just know grief takes it's own course and time. Maybe when you do see rainbows it's your Dad saying all is well.. So, I'm thinking of you, take good care, thanks for giving us a chance to give back to you or try to.
I'm very sorry for you loss Gem. It sounds like you are a good and caring person in your heart. Trust me, we all go through these things and even though they are very hard we have to persevere and make the best of every situation - that is at least what I think we all have to do. Plus the DP/DR makes these things sort of "stick in our consciousness" so it's not easy to cope. I'm sending my hopes and best wishes to you and yours. Don't give up. There will be a rainbow in your life one day or another, it can't rain all the time.
Gem my dad died from cancer as well. It is a horrible illness, I hate it.
I hope that your friend does not have ALS, that would suck.
life can be very ironic and painful somtimes. When we expect good, we get the bad and when we expect the bad we get the good. I guess all we humans can do is try and endure this painfull world.
Just hang in there Gem.
Thank you everyone for your kind words, they meant alot to me. My best friend is my husband. I did not word it properly. I always call my husband my best friend. I am waiting to find out if my husband has ALS. Again thank you so much.
I am definitely waiting for the rainbow to arrive and for the sun to come out - for that feeling when suddenly you think "my god I am me again"...! I am still waiting 3 months later, it hasn't happened yet....
