I am sorry to read about the death of your Dad. You described feeling like you are in a black hole; this feeling of emptiness and being lost are natural emotions which may be experienced. It is important to realize that grief is not something which can be fast tracked and there is no right or wrong time in which the process starts or finishes. It is a very individual process and no two people will experience it in the same way.
Sometimes sharing how you feel can help. Our information about getting support to do this may help - https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/bereavement-or-grief-counselling
