How do i move on?


I posted about my dads death about a month ago. CS i cant seem to move on or let go. It was 40 days yesterday that he died and my heart aches everyday.

I dont know how to move forward, how to let him go. I cry everyday...some days until i throw up.....I have lost faith in my religion, God, and i feel like a hollow vessel moving thru life.

How long does this grieving process take? I keep thinking about how the doctors screwed up and it angers me to no end. I want those doctors to experience the pain they caused me and my family. My father would have been so angry at how vindictive i feel but i cant help it.

I dont want to feel this way. I want to smile when i think if him, not be reduced to a sobbing wreck everytime......Any wonderful words of wisdom?? Please none of that...'It happened for a reason crap'

Sandy, grief is hard work and long work. Inevitably. But DO see a counsellor to make this frieg work more productive and to work through your understandably bitter feelings towards those who did not treat him properly --- such bitterness is of no benefit to you or him.
