Post subject:  Lost my Dad to suicide

What happened to my other post? I guess it didn't actually post.

Well I will just retype what I wrote. My name is Anna and I am 23 years old. I lost my Dad to suicide about 3 months ago, in January 2011. Life has not and will never be the same.

I lost him almost a year after graduating college. A time where I needed him. I loved him, but we had a very strained relationship. When he took his life, he also took my hopes and dreams of us mending our relationship and becoming close again. He killed an important dream I had.

I feel infuriated. Like an injustice was done to our whole family. I miss him terribly and alternate between wanting to forget him and desperately wanting to see him again. I have intrusive thoughts about his dead face, even though I never saw his dead body.

I function just enough to hold down my job. It's the only thing that gives any kind of structure and social interaction to my life right now.

If anyone can identify with anything I've said....please share. I am desperate to reach out to people who actually know how I'm feeling. I feel very alone despite having friends who care about me.
