Just wondering because I posted about how rough the week before father's day was going to be for me and no one responded. I was just looking for some sympathy from anyone who understood. Sorry for asking, I just don't feel welcome.

I'm sure you didn't do anything "wrong"...it has just been really hard for many people missing their significant male role-models. (I have had a couple stepdads...my father passed away in 1995.)

Please don't take few responses personally. I'm sure someone meant to respond and it just got lost in the shuffle.

After the fact, I hope your Father's Day wasn't as tough as you thought it might be.

Keep your chin up, sweetie! Dad's always watch!!!
Hugs from Houston!

I agree with the above post. If you think about it, this board is really slow because most people don't lose their parents on a daily basis. Most people come and post once or twice and don't return. I am trying to stick around, but I've been really busy the past couple weeks between my dad passing, family being in and out of town, funeral, ashes, work, etc.
You are more than welcome here! Trust me. Just stay patient and wait a few days for a response. I sometimes forget to check this forum, sorry.
More hugs for you! (((HUGS)))

I'm sorry that you had a rough week and that no one was here for you. I agree with the other girls...I posted here frequently after my Dad passed away in February, but most days I'd rather not be reminded of it so I don't come here. Since DH and I are now both without our Dads, we just kind of ignored the holiday all together...easier that way.

I hope you are doing okay, and please don't think you did something wrong.

I'm sorry for saying anything. I just feel so alone a lot of the time. Please don't think I'm a drama queen. I am not. Grief is just such a weird thing.

Don't be sorry hun. Feel free to PM me anytime you want to talk too. Grief is different for everyone, and I can understand why you felt the way you did at first. This board is just slower to get responses from, that's all.
