He died in December. It's really starting to hit me now. It was so sudden

So sorry. My DF passed away suddenly in January. For the first few weeks I was numb but it has hit me now and it is hard

Grapeeatingweirdo and lucyandpoppy123 - I'm very sorry to hear about your dads. It's very, very hard, especially in those first months. My dad died quite a few years ago. The realisation along with real pain came in waves. But eventually, the sharp, almost physical pain, lessened - it's never really gone away but I've absored it to the extent that I'm not dealt sledgehammer blows when I think of him.

I bet you've heard this many times but it's worth repeating. Look after yourselves and give yourselves as much time as you can to get to the point when the pain begins to lessen. I started a new job within a few weeks of dad's death. It was too soon and it didn't go well.

I lost my dad a month and a half ago and it still doesn't seem quite real. I find I get sharp stabs of realisation every so often - it really is important to let yourself feel it when that happens, cry, batter cushions, talk, whatever works. flowers for you. I miss my DF enormously.
