Two Years...Seems like an eternity ago


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Though I haven't posted in quite some time, I do read updates on many of the members here and just want to reiterate that this site was a Godsend to me while my dad was fighting his battle against lung cancer.

Tomorrow will mark the two year anniversary of his passing and it seems like he has been gone a lifetime. It still seems like a dream sometimes. The life I had before this nightmare is so far removed from the life I lead now. I don't like this new life but I have to manage. I still struggle with the reality of my loss and sometimes feel numb from it all. Will I cry tomorrow? I don't know. I don't think I have anything left really. I am amazed at how well my family and I have handled this tragedy though. You never know your personal strength until it is tested I guess.

To those of you who are just beginning this journey called grief, it does get better though. Believe it or not. Just take one day at a time.

There are so many of us here who understand. Sometimes it seems like a life time ago that I had Johnny with me then others it seems like yesterday. It does get better with time and work but we really are never the same. The tears still come after 6 and 1/2 years but most of the time they are the tears of happy memories and like the song says" I could have missed the pain but I would have had to mss the dance".

I hope you can start to find more of those happy memories and that those filled with pain will fade.
