My day has just hit rock bottom. :(

Well. Just spoke to my mom and heard some sad news. A man I knew all my life passed away this week. he was my dads best friend, and his wife and mom were, and still are, best friends and I went to school with their daughters. He was an amazing man, kind and generous, and he volunteer hhis time in retirement to go into inner cities and start up sporting programs for kids, voluntarily. (Neighborhoods we all would be scared of going in to, trust me). It's left me with a heavy heart, because I know what they are all feeling like tonight. :cry::(

My mate at work's father in-law has just been diagnosed with terminal inoperable lung cancer and been given weeks and she and her hubby are destroyed. :(

You have heard about my other friend whose husband woke up totally blind a few weeks ago....that is a sad story unfolding as the weeks go on, and seeing her coping takes it out of me. It is a very difficult up hill road for her at the moment. :(

One of my best friends has been struggling with skin cancer, which was misdiagnosed years ago and she has been told it is much worse then they thought and mom told me she has been very ill the past two or three weeks. :(

My brothers girlfriend has been sick for the last month. She suffers from dizzy episodes, and in trying to adjust her medication she got much worse and they have not figured out why - its more then the medicine.:(

I got an email this morning from my ex-partner (the one I wrote about in my thread - at least I think I did...?) Well, his mom Bette died 2 weeks ago. :(

Crap. How much already!!!???

I just feel like crying. :cry:I was already down when I realised we are broke (and that is always a fear of mine about this diet's costs ..... always terrified I will come to a point where we can't afford it)...Don't get me wrong - I know my money probs are NOTHING compared to all the above - hbut it is a worry, and its just a really heavy night. :(

I think I am going to go put on some sad music and have a cry. :cry: Or play my guitar and make my own sad music. But don't worry - It is remarkably noticeable, I do not feel the slightest need to eat anything - which I find terribly significant. I just feel very sad, and I suppose that is what I am supposed to feel....sad, not stuffed.:(

So so sorry this is such a downer. It's times like these, when being so far from friends and family that I feel so very alone....and it doesn't help that hubby is on nights tonight. I just needed someone to "talk" to.

Oh honey, what an awful day and a really sad and awful time for you - hope you had a good cry and let some of that anger, frustration and hurt out. I can fully understand you wanting to be close to your family - I'm sure they're missing you as you're missing them.

I know we're not quite the same but we are all here for you and sending you the biggest (((hugs)))

Sending hugs and love.

BL - how awful for have to deal with and be so far way - senfing my thoughts to you
Thanks again everyone. I feel a bit better after a good sleep.....just a bit numb from hearing so much about so many in such a short time.

Makes you really appreciate what you have. Even the extra pounds. At least I can do something about them.

Don't know that I will be about much today - but just wanted to say thank you. Again.
Hi Honey, glad to hear you're feeling a bit better this morning - you've got a hell of a lot on you mind, lot of hurt and emotions there and nobody expects you to struggle on silently through all of this. You've got your hubby, family, friends, colleagues and us to talk to so please do so - don't bottle things up xx
Hi Corey - thanks a lot. Feel a bit better this morning - had a good sleep, and its a new day. Just feel a little in shock still, that so many people in my life are suffering. Its frustrating as there is nothing I can do about it, and I know that, but that annoys me and just leaves me feeling a little blue.

I am at work now, and it is days like this where I find it really difficult to have patience with customers who have a right go at us because they don't have their TV replaced in a flash second....drives home the importance of priorities - and most people's, including mine at times, are skewed.

Thanks for asking. :)
