Anyone else have no parents?  Mine both passed away.  How do you deal?  I am always so depressed.

(((hugs)))

I often feel parentless because my mom isn't really a part of my life, lives several states away and maybe calls 2 -3 times a year. I lost my dad, fil and mil 14 yrs ago.

It's hard sometimes, I wish my kids had grandparents and I miss having family. It's just dh, me & the kids. I'd be totally lost without them.

It helps somewhat to just focus on the kids and the here and now, although somedays that's hard.

I lost my father on March 9,1977, and my mother on January 8, 2012, then my husband on September 15, 2012. I take it one day at a time, I also have a 14, (he'll be 15 tomorrow, May, 2) year old son, that gives me a reason to keep going. All my other family passed away a long time ago. I do have my 2 sister-in-laws, and a grown step daughter, but they live 40 miles away, so i don't see them often, we talk on the phone regularly, so I have that much. When I go to the cemetary, then that's when I'm visiting all my family. I believe that they would all want me to keep goingm keep living, and we will all be together someday. (I mean no offense, if you are not a believer in Heaven.)

Always depressed? DId you just recently lose your parents?

I just never let myself get and stay down. I typically let myself have a day - one day to remember and mope. Then kick myself out of it.

I do not have parents. I mean, my bios are still living, but they were never actual parents to me. I was, and still am, the parent in my relationship with my mother, and my father only had an interest in me when I was the age he likes to prey on, and was too worried about being thrown away to say anything about what he was having me do.

No :( I'm sorry.. My dad passed when I was 16 though, but I still have my mom.

 I know it's hard.  I have adoptive parents that live 8 hours away but we're not really close and I see them maybe 2-3 times a year, if that.  My bio mom lives several states away and I've only seen her in person a handful of times.  I thought I found my bio Dad, but paternity test was negative so who knows where my bio dad actually is.  Also, a few years ago my dh and I moved out of state away from all family and friends, and then divorced.  So... my 2 kids and I are very much alone here and sometimes it's really hard.  Lonely.  I just have to get over the thought that we're going to have a big happy family with big family get togethers and stuff.  That's what I'd like.  Just keep focused on all the good and positive..

 Yes, I lost my mom in 2009 and my dad in 2011.
