death of a parent
An_198065 posted:
I lost my beloved father in 2004 and it is now almost 7 years. The loss is still so painful. Sometimes I see an old man on the street who resembles him and I say to myself "I wish that was him. I just want to hug him again one more time". After the fantasy passes- the reality sets in.
Does this show that I have still not fully accepted my father's death and that I have not yet ended the grieving cycle- even after 7 years? Is that "normal"?
Caprice_WebMD_Staff responded:
I still sometimes react the same way when I spot someone who looks like my dearest lost one and it's been over five years now. I doubt I'll ever stop missing him. But I have moved forward in my life, have happiness, etc.

So perhaps look at that in your own life... does having these feelings get in the way of living your life fully, does it get in the way of taking care of yourself, are you stuck in it or does it feel like this only now and then? If you are feeling stuck, I encourage you to consider some therapy to help you sort all this out.

Perhaps others here will have some ideas for you.
