My brother and sisters and I lost our father, rather unexpectedly (heart attack) on March 3, 2005 and I, for one, am having a tough time trying to cope with the loss. I still feel like I can pick up the phone at any time and call him. There are days when I don't even feel like getting out of the bed much less taking care of our children (my DH and I have 3) but there are also days when I'm ready for anything that comes down the pike.
I live, approx, 3.5 hrs away from my siblings and they're trying to handle the loss as well so it's hard for me to talk to them. My DH lost his father when he was just a boy so he has a hard time helping me deal with these feelings.
Up until several yrs ago I wasn't all that close with my sibs (halves actually - my dad didn't have a good track record when it came to marriages) and although I could spend hours talking to father on the phone I have a hard time trying to connect with my sibs and like I said they're having to deal with their loss, too. So what do I do?
