41. Hugs to you and you sound normal, not losing your sanity
One of the hardest thing to do is have a parent die, have to deal with it. If there is a hospice or a group near you dealing with death and dying issues, talk with them as this is what they do.

Of course you are upset. Of course you cry. Of course you feel like you are going crazy. Things are out of your control and good grief losing a parent can be really really really hard.

My advice:
Make sure you take care of yourself. Eat, drink (low alcohol), sleep in amounts that will keep you healthy.

Benadryl is otc and is the part of "tylenol pm" that makes it "pm", but you can get it on its own. One won't knock you out, it is an antihistamine, but can help you go back to sleep when you finally fall asleep then wake with a start, thinking "omg, my dad".

Find hospice or a group as they can help.

Take care of yourself. If you get sick, it won't help anyone. Take care of yourself.
