A week ago yesterday, I lost my grandfather. He was an amazing person, he was my best friend. I’ve been his caregiver since the beginning of October when he was diagnosed with prostate and bone cancer.
Since my Poppy passed, I have been nothing but an emotional wreck. It all just happened soo fast. I’m really just lost for words to be honest, I don’t think it’s really quite hit me yet. It seems like he’s just out playing golf or poker with his buddies. I mean, if I’m like this now, how am I going to be come the holidays? They’re right around the corner.
I need to know how I can cope with all of this; I cant’ stand the pain.
