    has begun.

    I lost my father two months ago.  It wasn't supposed to be this way.  Tomorrow will be my first Father's Day with me unable to show how much I appreciate him.  Its still hard to process that he's never coming back.  

    I find myself obsessing over every little symptom thinking it could be the only hint I'm going to get that something is terribly wrong.  Every headache or sore throat.  He didn't get much warning at all before the diagnosis - stage 4 kidney cancer.  I have panic attacks.  I'm becoming withdrawn from things that used to bring me happiness.  I'm trying medication and grief counseling but it seems that I'm not nearly done hurting yet.  Every time i tell my story it gets a little better, but only a little.  I just want to feel like my old self again.  

    Somehow, your story gives me hope things will eventually get better.  Thank you for sharing.
