Ask John & Russell

With multiple deaths in a short period of time...just as we start being able to keep our head above the emotional waterline, another wave comes and pushes us under. (Published 8-2-11)

Q:

Nancy from CA writes: I lost both my parents this past year a couple of months apart. My mom's death was somewhat expected, but not my dad's. I feel a tremendous loss and pain. I keep capturing all the sad moments of this past year. I feel as though I"m experiencing post traumatic stress syndrome. Do you have any suggestions? I have both of them on my mind constantly. Please help!!!
