Not really. Life throws some blows at us to the point where it will knock us down. And the thing is we have got to learn how to get up and walk. It's almost like a baby trying to walk. Every time the baby gets up he or she will fall back down until the legs are strong enough and one day that one step turns into 20 and then we take off running. That's how losing a love one make us feel. A death knocks us to the ground. We get back up start walking in sanity again and then we fall back down from another death, we get back up and start walking and then another storm comes...it's like that until death calls us. Take care and hope to have you as a friend.
I just want to say, ...that there are so many sections to this site,..the loss of a child, sibling, parent,suicides, infants, sudden accidents and prolonged passings. My mother just passed from cancer, and quite honestly,....it doesn't matter how old she was. I've been reading other posts,...mom at 92,...dad at 65,....child at 2 weeks,....I could post something at all these places,...the point is,....all of us have lost something irreplacable,...and the age, or circumstances don't make any difference,...we are all trying to find a way to cope. I have lost so many people for so many reasons, and I feel strange that because it is my mother this time, I am putting this out here for total strangers to read. I am fortunate to have a fantastic net of friends and family,.....but I am writing here now in order to spare them a bit,...is that weird?
