I know this may sound silly but it's been 6 mos since my dad has passed away and lately at random times I think of him and actually have to remind myself he's not here. I don't know why this just started happening. I'll be driving and he'll pop into my mind and I have to remind myself that all that happened and he's gone. Or I'll wake up from a dream of him and think it was real or that he is here. So weird! Has this happened to anyone? And how long after your loss has this happened? I will have to actually stop, think, and say in my head I'm never going to talk/see him again and I don't know where he is right now.
