Have "lost" my father although he is very much alive, to an obscure cult/religion I simply do not understand 2 years ago. He denounced myself and all family members as meaningless to him and although he is happy for us to visit him, has actually stated he now feels so little for us that even our death or illness would not have any bearing on him. 2 years on, I still feel as hurt and angry as the day he said it. I have spent most of the day crying or trying to distract myself. He will only discuss it if I am prepared to accept that we do not have a father daughter relationship, which I can't. Up until 2 years ago he was always my best friend and now I feel so lost without him. The counsellor I saw could only come up with a time will heal line and yet it is still so painful on a day like today. My mother and brother grew apart from him years prior to all this and therefore have moved on. Anyone else seen a family member come out the other end. I live in desperate hope for my dad to come back!
