Bad year Mon, 08/6/12 1:20 PM (permalink)
Again, I have lost someone not supposed to die. First my friend Michelle due to domestic violence, and now to my cousin because he drank( I myself am a recovering alcoholic) Matt fell down his stairs Friday, wasnt found til last night. Prayers for his immediate family-we were close-I am just tired of crying day in and day out..just asking for lots of prayers as we heal.

    My prayers are with you and the family.

    I lost a good friend to alcoholism last year a few days before she was to learn she was going to be a Grandmother. Now we have little Isabella (who is a joy) and I will always do my best to let her know that her Grandma is always with her....and don't call me Grandma. Bad girl is fine by me.

        Aw..Ann.....it is always a shock to have someone go quickly long before their time!  I hope you have someone other than the folks on here to work through the grief you must be feeling

                      Ann,
                      Very sorry to hear about your loss.  I think you need to spend a little time in the comfort of friends.

                          I had a bad year too.  While Michael and I were driving to Arizona I got a phone call..........my mother was cooking and set the kitchen on fire.  Mom and Dad both had bad burns and were in the ER.  Dad died on July 25.  Mom is now in a nursing home.  The house I was born and raised in is now for sale.  Not fun.

                            Ann,
                             
                            I feel for what you are going through.
                             
                            I just returned from a funeral on Long Island for a friend who also suffered through spousal abuse. They recently divorced but he ended his life over the weekend, he was only 44 years old and left a three year old little girl.

                              I know I am not alone in tragedies, and embrace all who have gone thru theirs. We need each other's comfort, and appreciate my roadfood friends that offer it. You have mine, as well.

                                It is difficult to go through times like these I know.  But, that's what we do, and reach out to others who may be hurting.  I wish you well, Ann, and thanks for sharing.

                                  Ann I agree, not the best of years. Hang in there, we'll pull thru.

                                    Unfortunately, I have great empathy for you.
                                     
                                    All I can say is,  be as strong as you can be, and as weak as you need to be.
