    I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights.  more...

    I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill.  more...

    I have been staying with my dad because my mom doesn't want me around when she is sick, which is all the time. My dad works at night so I spend a lot of time alone since I'm not with my mom. I'm afraid she is going to die and I'll blame myself for not being there more. more...

Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him!

It's 11 months now that my dad passed away! It sometimes feels longer, then other days it could feel like last week! I have flash backs in my head of my dad and sometimes it is the flash backs I want to see!!! but I try have the happy memories! Something I wish I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him! But I suppose that won't happen! I just wish that all them times he asked me to do something I do it! and when he was ill I spend more time with him, that's the times I regret! But he will understand that hopefully!

The things that are important to me now are my family and best friends!! They are the ones that make me happy when I am sad, and when I am down they are the ones that let me cry on there shoulder. It hurts and at first I thought it was only me hurting, like every1 does, we all hurt in different ways, some worse than others, but I know I am not the only person hurting out there! and I know that I am not alone in the world. I would wish one thing for my dad to come back but I can't do that, he is in a better place now looking over and protecting me. And I have to live life without him
