Grief feels so raw a year om

Initially I coped well after the sudden death of my dad last year, when I was 31. Obviously, losing a parent is always awful but I'd lost my Mum very young as well, when I was just 14. As a result, my dad meant the world to me - he was my whole family, really.

Now, one year later and I'm just haunted with memories and guilt and overwhelming sadness. There's so much I want to tell him and I just miss him so very, very much.

I am just looking for people who understand.

I understand, Wellies. I was 27 when my dad died. I lost my mum many years later and I miss her very much; but my dad - I feel resentful that he missed out on so much, guilty that I didn't tell him how much he meant to me and just sad. Very sad.
It's still such early days for you; 12 months is nothing, feels like yesterday. I can't make you feel any better, but I do understand. x
