I am an only daughter of a single dad. We fled from Russia when times were very tough and my mother had made a conscious decision to abandon me when I
was just an infant. Apparently she fell in love with another man in the military and wanted to have his children. After many many years, my resentment
for her is diminishing but any kind of healing take time. Sometimes a lot of time.
You are not alone.
My dad is the most important person in my world. I would do anything for him even though he is in his own way, damaged from his life pains and
tribulations. I can't say that I know what it is to have someone that close pass away, but I can say that i've had a mother who carried me inside of
her for 9 months and in her arms for a year decide we weren't enough. It used to be that the Moms were the single parents but more and more I see
fathers stepping up and doing what they can for their children. You need to realize that there are so many people out there who genuinely want to help
you and care, and others who genuinely don't. Find something that will help you, like a support group (most are free and can be found with an online
search) or friends, online friends with helpful advice, but most importantly your dad.
He probably needs support just as much as you do.
You can send me a private message anytime hun, I'm usually around.
