I would like to speak with people that have made similar choices with similar situation and those who have had positive results.
I fully support people for the choices they make for themselves and I am looking for people who would be happy to share their experiences and in turn I can share my experiences and outcome.

The roller coaster of emotions you are going through right now is natural. Please know that you are never a burden to your family or friends. In a time like this people want to share your pain and help in whatever way possible.
I went through the death of my dad when I was young and was so caught up in my own grief that I forgot how my mum was feeling. She was putting on a brave face because of the children but was aching inside.
Spend as much time as you can with your dad and keep telling him you love him with lots of hugs and kisses. He needs your support now.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
