    From how the story sounds, you couldn't have done more. You did your best. You tried, and that is all that could be expected out of anyone. It is not your fault.

    I'm so sorry, dude. I can't imagine how you're feeling right now, it sounds like my worst nightmare. Don't feel bad about posting about it, you definitely need to talk to people right now.

    I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. I don't know you and you don't know me, but there are some great people on this forum, and I'm sure there are some great people in your life who wish the best for you and will be there to listen.

    As you're going through this, remember that there is no wrong way to grieve. Let yourself cry if you need to, and don't feel guilty if the tears don't come.

    You'll get through this. It's rough, and it won't be easy, but you will.

    I need to be strong for my mom. She's been breaking down and I've had to help take care of her. But I keep replaying every scene in my head and it's killing me.

    And thanks.

    I've spent the last few minutes trying to think of the right thing to say here, but I really don't know.

    That's just completely fucked, and I'm really sorry for what happened to your Dad.

    You guys are gonna be okay.

    It's not gonna feel okay, and probably won't for a long time, but that's just how it goes when this shit happens.

    And I know you feel you have to be strong now, but you're in pain too and it's good that you're talking to us about it.

    We'll be here for you as long as you need it.

    God damn Val. I am so sorry you had to go through that. I can only imagine what you're feeling.

    It sounds like you did all you could, though I understand if that's little consolation. Wish I could give you a hug.

    Val, bud, I can't even imagine....

    I'm sorry I can't be there in person. For all the times I would have loved to have met you, had a drink, played videogames, joked around, they all pale to the wish I have now to grab your hand and pull you into the biggest manhug and let you know that it's going to be alright. And I wouldn't let go until I felt you knew I mean it.

    But I can't be there; I'm here. We're all here. For whatever strength we can give you, whatever you need from us that we're able to give, we're all here. If you need to be strong for your family, we'll help as best we can. You do what you can to carry them, and we'll do what we can to carry you. Because that's what friends are for.

    It's not much, in a way, but at the same time, I hope it can be everything. Kia kaha, brother.

    I know this probably isn't the thread for it, so please, mods, move it to the appropriate place for me, but I can't think straight right now.

    I was gonna do stuff this weekend. And I've been lazy. Just hadn't felt like doing anything since I hurt my shoulder and my kids had to leave. And then tonight, my dad called me from the kitchen and before I couldn't get in there he had collapsed. I tried chest compressions and rescue breathing and I could get him breathing. By the time the ambulance finally got there after driving by the house 3 times, he hadn't been breathing for about 7 minutes. I've never worked so hard at something and failed so miserably.

    I've dealt with depression a lot. Last night I downloaded and played Depression Quest and I could see so much of it in me. And now this. I was already feeling down and unproductive because of my kids leaving to go back home, now I just want to...

    I just feel like I could have done more to help my dad, and not watched him die in my arms like that. Hell, putting it like that sounds so dramatic. At first it was like he was breathing, but he has sleep apnea, so I was trying to get him up so he could breathe better, and it was like he was snoring, but he was unresponsive, and then he stopped breathing altogether and cracked his ribs three times. I hea f

    ANd all I want to d is cry.,

    Hugs, pm me if you need someone to pm, I am literally in this current situation. I also kept meaning to ask if we could have a mental health thread as between some recent posts here and in feminism thread we could probably use one for a bit. ( Mental Health and Feminism I still say should be autorecyclers but that's a diff battle I don't feel like getting into)

    Things ar pretty bad here. My mom and I have tried to keep busy? We got about three hours of sleep last night. I have not PTO left for the year so all I get are three days funeral leave.we are waiting until my brother gets back from Afghanistan, so I will probably need to work for two days at my call center job. I'll find out about it tomorrow.

    I can't walk into my kitchen without seeing my dad there. But I'm going To have to take care of my mom now. And I don.'t feel up to that task

    Just do what you have to do when you feel up for it, and don't be afraid to feel the things you need to feel.

    And any time you need to vent or just know there is someone around to listen, that's what we are here for.

    Don't be afraid to seek a professional to help you work through your feelings. Losing anybody is hard, especially in the circumstances you have, and while the financial impact can seem daunting, there really is no substitute for professional guidance through a crisis like this.

    Good luck, man. I genuinely wish there was more I could do, but at least know that there are a large number of friends here to listen when the need arises, at whatever hour.

    Val, understand that you did everything you could for him. What you're feeling is very common for emergency response people in similar situations.

    The reality is you were there and you administered first aid within a reasonable time frame. There is literally nothing else you could have done. Now, I don't believe in afterlife, but I'm sure your old boy would be glad that he had you there, doing your damnedest. As much as it fucking sucks to have to admit it, there is often nothing we can do to help.

    Take comfort from the fact that if there was a chance he'd make it, you provided it.

    It's great that you're there to help your mum, but just realise that you're allowed to hurt too. She will understand this. On a related note, you are not alone in that you have us. There will always be someone around who will listen to you. I repeat, you are not alone. I will echo the advice already given that if you are struggling to cope (and ain't nobody on this earth who would blame you) go and talk to a professional if you can

    help a fellow forumer meet their mental health care needs because USA healthcare sucks!

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better

    I don't know how to phrase this.

    You did everything right. And in his final moments your dad saw that you love him. And he saw that you'll do right by your mother. And he saw that you're strong and that you'll be able to get through this.

    I hope you can find some small comfort in that. While I can't speak for anyone else, I do know that I hope whenever I go I know my loved ones will be ok. And you gave him that.

    Again, I am so sorry this happened. And it'll be dark for a while. And that's ok. No matter what it's ok to not know how to feel right now. Just remember that while you're there for your mom, she's also there for you through this. There's absolutely no shame in lifting eachother up instead of one trying to be strong for the other.

    If there's anything you need, just let us all know. Someone to talk to or anything else.

    No I don't.
