My 87 yo Dad died suddenly last July. Its been a very tough time since, and I miss him everyday though I'm mostly on an emotional even keel day to day now. The tears tend to come at night after DH has gone to bed.
Last night I had a dream about Dad. I saw him in a crowd with his partner (who is still alive). I pushed through the crowd and managed to catch up with him. He turned to look at me but said he had to keep moving and that he couldnt stop and talk. He then carried on moving away and I was shouting and shouting for him until I became hoarse.
Today I havent been able to get this image out of my mind, and I've been in pain and in tears for much of the day.
I know I'll probably settle emotionally by tomorrow, but its been a heck of a day. DH isnt aware. While he is lovely, he's not comfortable at all with displays of emotion.
Sorry for being on a bit of a downer, it just feels better letting off a bit of steam. Thank you for listening.
