Re: I miss my Dad!
I lost my dad 3 1/2 years ago in a plane crash. I was 35. My younger sister had just turned 28 a couple of months before. She had also just gotten married for the first time 3 weeks before the accident. (We lost our dad, our older sister, our brother-in-law, our 14 year old niece, and our 3 year old nephew) Needless to say, her marriage didn't last. I think she was married for about 2 years - but it definitely wasn't a marriage that had a fair start. Anyway, now she has met a wonderful man. She gave herself time after the divorce and didn't rush into a new relationship right away. They are engaged and extremely happy. Yes, she still misses our family that we lost tremendously. But she also has found a great happiness that a few years ago she thought was impossible for her to find in this lifetime. So... don't give up hope. I personally know how you feel about counseling - that's why I'm on this message board also - I'm not getting what I need from counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, life coaches, etc., etc. I keep feeling a need to be understood. And honestly, as crazy as it sounds, I think I'm hoping to connect with somebody who has lost more than one person at one time. Unfortunately, I know they are out there...
God Bless You,
