I have to say that this is one board I have dread joining but knew it would happen.
I lost my dad to stage IV Mestatic Lung Cancer which had spread to the spine and bone by the time everything was done. He died on April 30th. He was just 61 (62 in June). He was very healthy leading up to the dx, non smoker, non drinker, very active, etc.
I have a lot of anger-I'm in therapy and have support from family and friends. As much as I dont want to be a part of this board, I'm oddly glad there is a place I can come.
I am so so sorry for your loss Parents are so hard to lose, I've lost both. People grieve differently and process things differently, there is no set time to heal.
From experience, the first three months are so tough, then the milestones start coming at you that first year. Each year gets a bit easier-eventually you can think about them sometimes and not cry instantly.
This board is slow, but we are here for each other. Most people will tell you to forgive, forget and move on-usually on their time frame. This board isn't like that. We will miss your parents with you and tell you that what you're feeling is normal, long after the "acceptable" time frame that friends and family have for us.
((hugs)) and love to you
