kim Posted January 3, 2005 Share Posted January 3, 2005 I don't know where to start! My Dad is really having a hard time right now without my Mom. She has been gone 2 months now, and Dad just seems to be going downhill. The weekends are the worst. He had a wreck on New Year's Day. He went around the bend and crossed the yellow line and hit someone. Everyone was okay, but he said he didn't even see them; he was thinking about Mom. I have him an appt. to see a new family doctor next week, and he now agrees he needs something for depression. I don't think he's thinking of taking his life, but I'm worried for him because he can't concentrate, and his mind always wonders to thoughts of Mom. He drives about an hour to work every day to Indy, and I'm worried about him being on the road. He goes to church and has friends there, but I don't know what more to do to help my father through this . If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate them. I'm the one out of 5 kids he depends on to hold us all together and I and my sister are the youngest!(go figure!) If anyone knows of a good, easy reading, book that might help, please let me know. I'm writing to you all because I feel that YOU are my hope and inspirations for getting through this. Love to all, and God Bless! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
