I lost my dad the day after my first wedding anniversary my husbands 40th birthday last year in July, I can’t believe it’s nearly been 12 months. I’m finding it harder and harder to look at the calendar every day, we were very close and I had him living with us for the last 7 weeks of his life which I will cherish forever. Roughly 4 weeks ago we learnt my father in law that I have a very close bond with who is my husbands step dad who he adores and classes him as his dad (we have no relationship with his biological dad), has found out he has bowel and brain cancer, they have stopped treatment, I feel I’m re-living last year all over again, it’s bringing my memories up so much and it’s taking a toll on me physically, I don’t know how to stay strong for my kids and my husband and my mother in law who I cherish as much as my mum.
Why is life so cruel, how do I protect my kids from such another big loss so close together, especially when we all still haven’t dealt with dad passing. All advice will be greatly appreciated.
