I feel hammy posting here. I'm not explicitly seeking attention, I have enough of that in real life. But I'm trying to source coping strategies for death.
I'm 27, and my 57 year-old healthy father died of a heart attack two weeks ago. My life feels shattered, and I don't feel like I have anyone to turn to. Everyone tells me to be thankful that he went quickly and didn't suffer. I don't have the heart to tell the people that knew him that even if he went quickly, he suffered. I drove him to the hospital. I saw his pain. I pulled him out of the car at the hospital and saw the moment he died. It's eating me up inside.
I have yet to schedule grief counseling, but I think this will be important.
I'm surrounded by supportive people who say the right tings, and people who say all the wrong things.
I wonder how you pick up the pieces and go on with life without things seeming... futile. How you live day to day without a smell, a scene, a sound triggering you and bringing you to your knees in emotional pain.
Anyone with clarity and objectivity, thank you in advance.
