How do I get it through to my dad, he needs to be healthy and make a change in his life?
Recently, my dad and I got in a car crash. We both had to go to the hospital. I was fine.. But my dad was hurting, so they did an x-ray of his right side. They didn't find any broken bones or fractures, but they found a lump or black spot on one of his lungs.
Me, knowing this wasn't much of a surprise because he has smoked cigerettes, for about 20 years, and has smoked marijuana sonce he was 13. He is 43 now..
Now I am not the type of person to show sympathy for others. I am not even the type to show feeling or my feelings to others in person at all...But my dad is pretty much everything to me, and if I lost him, I really don't know what id do with myself. Since I am not those type of people, every time my family discusses this issue of him possibly dying from it being lung cancer, I don't say anything. But when I do decide to speak, I always say "yeah, hes gonna die." But deep down I truly hope he doesn't...
My dad is just like me too. He doesnt show feeling, like I do.. I am the only one who can tell how he is feeling. And he always complains he wants to die..so he is fine with him dying. But I am not. How do I show him, I really do want him to live?
