like mandyloo said, there is really no way to "cope." i lost my dad to pancreatic cancer earlier last year, and the best thing to do is just make sure you're not stuffing your feelings inside or else you could completely break down. you need to release them any way possible by journaling or talking to a therapist or parent or even writing music. whatever you chose, its just best to get rid of any negative emotions and focus on the positive things, like all the great times you had with your dad and being thankful that you got to spend the time with him that you did.
Theres no way to really "cope" with it thats wrong or right doll. Im sorry to hear about your father and i know what your going through. Mine has had cancer for 7 years and has lived in and out of hospitals and been given a death date many times before. There is no easy way to cope. Remember that you dont always have to be strong and feeling your emotions and letting them out is perfectly okay and can help.
All you can do is pray about it and spend time with your dad and let him know you love him very much and it will be ok. God doesn't place anything on you you can not handle..
my mum is struggling to cope all my family have pulled together, but i made a promise to my dad that i would be strong. i dont know how to release my frustration
Where is you mom? Any other relatives?
