I feel like a needy fraud right now

I’ve just been notified that my father has died.


I’m estranged from my family, so I was contacted in a round about way. I was explaining the difficulties we are facing at the moment.

My wife is in remission from Breast cancer, my eldest daughter is being treated at GOSH for JAI and we’re facing eviction and homelessness.

I don’t wish to appear cold but his death is the least of my troubles. Yet I feel like a fraud for relating our pain to an estranged family member.

How fucked up am I
