I am new to this group - I was on-line searching for some answers on how to deal with my dad (80). My mom passed away just before Thanksgiving 2007 and he is having a really difficult time. I understand this, but it almost appears that he doesn't WANT to move on. I fully expect him to have some bad days and to think of her all the time, but I call him nearly every day (I'm 3 hours away) and everyday he seems to get more and more angry and hateful and every time we hang up he is sobbing when he says goodbye. I'm trying to deal with my own grief and still be there for him, but it's at a point where I can hardly stand to call him because it upsets me so much. He's always been a very pessimistic person, and I'm afraid that this is what I'm going to have to deal with forever. Am I expecting too much too soon?
