Passing away

My father recently passed away. We briefly left the room and he oassed away alone, i do not believe it was peaceful. I can not get the image out of my head and relive this almost every night. Should i talk to a professional or is this normal?

Re: Passing away

Hi Jess1,


 I am very sorry for your loss.   It’s not easy losing someone you love. 


I was at my mothers bedside when she died 9 years ago & I still see it all so vividly.   Time helps to ease things but I know that talking helps too. 

It can’t do any harm if you do see a consellor.   It might put your mind at rest. 


Wishing you all the best
