We are sorry to hear about the recent loss of your dad and all that he
went through during the final weeks of his life.
It’s not unusual to experience a sense of relief when a loved one dies
and witnessing your dad experience all that he did with his illness and for such a long time, must have been
especially distressing for you to watch.
Whilst we are not medically trained here on the Support Line, it can be
common for our bodies to produce physical symptoms as we react to our feelings.
We have some information on our website about the physical symptoms of grief
you may experience and how to cope with these symptoms here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/coping-grief-teenager/physical-symptoms-grief
If your symptoms persist or you are concerned about anything at all, we
would suggest that you have a follow up conversation with your GP about this.
Whilst it can be comforting to reach out to others that are going
through a similar experience to yourself, we have information on our website
that you may already be aware of about getting support which you may find
helpful. You can take a look at this here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/bereavement-or-grief-counselling
We hope this information will be of use to you. If you ever need
a listening ear or would like to talk about things in more detail please call
our Freephone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web
