17 and my parents died

Im 17 years old and one morning I woke up to a pounding on my door. It was the police and he said that neither of my parents showed up for work today. I was quite confused but thought maybe they couldnt get the cars up the driveway because it had recently snowed a lot. The officer tells me to go look around the house and see if theyre still here. I look everywhere and then I go to look in the garage. The first thing I see is my dad dead with a bullet hole in his head. I ran back inside and screamed. It didnt seem real whatsoever. I try calling and texting my mom but theres no answer. Im so distraught that i dont know what to do with myself. Later on at the police station, I find out that my mom was found dead too. It was a murder-suicide. This whole incident was completely and utterly unexpected. Everything seemed fine the night before.

If anyone has been through something similar can you please tell me how they got through it and what they did to live their lives normally. This is just way too much for anyone to every have to go through, let alone a 17 year old kid.

Please help!

Re: 17 and my parents died

wow that must be hard. i see you wrote this a yr ago. I hope things are better now. My only advise is done tell people. I never tell about my paretns. They died of a heart attack and car wreck and people get weird and noisey the minute they find out. I hate that. it embarrasses m the reaction people have. they are always shocked and dont understand. i have lived my whole life without mom and dad. mine died when i was 9 & 10 and im ok. its what i make of it. i dont use it as an excuse to be weak in life. i use it as an excuse to be strong.

Re: 17 and my parents died

I am so sorry. The police should have looked themselves and not had you looked and never heard of that. Odd. There are grief couselors out there. Talk to one please. I know people do it to end 'thier' hurt and don't think about the ones left behind. I hope you believe in God or a higher power because you have some strength in you to even come here to seek out help. Surround yourself with good friends.
