I have never written in a message board or group, but I feel it will help me to talk amongst others in loss.

My dad died last night, I feel numb right now

It takes time and it will get better over time, but do not rush your grieving. Everyone does in their way. Just take it one day at a time and keep the memories you have of your father, expecially the very good ones going everyday. He is with you all the time. It has been some time since I lost my father and our situation was different but I did what to be done to get passed the pain of losing him anyway. Just take it one step at a time and you will do fine. Ignor comments and do what you feel is best for you at this time. You will be fine. Take care.

I believe you about the length of time, I feel like I am crazy when I just lose it and cry at any random time. I'm mad, sad frustrated and just feel like there is always a lump in my throat. Thanks for your replies, they help.
