Default Is this happening to anyone else?

or is it just the way life is going these days in northern joisy?

there have been 6 deaths among family and friends over the past two weeks. two were sudden and very sad, and happened way too soon [both were in their early 40s], another one was a young man in his mid-30s after a long bout with cancer, and the others were among older, sick folks.

it's just been so sad. it HAS to get better....

at least i'm not eating my way through this, but .....

Oldly enough I do know of one other woman who has been through a similar situation where she has had brain tumours hit I believe 4 people, herself included all within the past couple of months. She questioning all sorts of things about life very deeply at the moment.

Glad to hear you're still centered in it all somehow.

I'm so sorry these things are all happening at once. No, I'm haven't had any recent deaths in my family/friends, but it does seem like often bad things happen in clusters.

It's probably not much comfort to you, but this too shall pass.

Again, I'm sorry for your losses.
