1. Introduction

This is another one of those topics not planned, and not looking for. When doing research for something else we saw this term, it stood out to us as we could relate to it and so we wanted to find out more.

The term we saw was:

“Distorted Grief may give you feelings of guilt and anger”

My sister and I can most definitely relate to this. The nature of the circumstances in which our Dad passed away makes us feel guilty up until this very day. We know and are aware it was not our fault as we are not medical professionals, we are two daughters who wanted only the best for our Dad. Even though we thought he was in the best place to receive the best care, we cannot help but feel guilty about the way things turned out. Guilt and great sadness as well as anger.

We do not feel things needed to turn out the way that they did. Sadly, nothing can be done about that, more than anything we wish our Dad was still here with us, but as we know that cannot happen, we are doing our very best to get our Dad the justice he rightly deserves for everything that he endured in his seven-month battle in the hospital. This journey of trying to seek justice has been a long and hard one. We hope that somehow we manage to succeed and that our efforts will not end up being in vain.

We are approaching the sixth year in which our Dad sadly passed away. We still havent been heard with regards to our complaint. But when speaking to people about things, if anything to do with injustice comes up, it reignites our fight and determination to not give up.

Our journey is one of learning and discovery and sharing as we go along. We faced so many unknowns along the way. Being able to share new things we find out was one of the main reasons we started this blog. Creating a platform that can be accessed by those who might need it.
