3 years ago today my dad died...

...and I'm still a wreck. My dad wasn't a great man, he wasn't a good father - he was an alcoholic and a drug addict.

Part of me is still stuck in the anger stage of grief. It still makes me so mad that he chose to live the life he did. He chose to ignore me, my husband and his only granddaughter but he buddy buddy with my younger sister and brother.

Everyone tells me not to think about it, but I can't get his house out of my head! He kept everyone out of his house and after he died wefound out why....he didn't have running water, the house was disgusting, porn plastered the walls-and not T&A porn but NASTY porn...I could go on and on but it only gets worse from there.

Everyone tells me he suffered from alcohol induced psychosis but I just don't know. Maybe I will never know.

Ba! Today sucks. Thanks for listening.

I'm sorry for your loss.  It's hard no matter what.  (My dad died when I was 24.)

I am really sorry for your loss.  Some people with alcohol addiction are not who they would be if they were sober.   I hope you find some peace.

I lost my dad 20 years age, and my mom last year. The pain will always be there, but it does get better.
