    What Do You Say?

    What can you say to someone who's lost a loved one or relative? Anything I might say sounds lame and pointless. But you can't just pretend nothing's happened.

    Oil and Water

    I don't deal well with the deaths of the people around me. At all. For some reason I have trouble processing the fact that someone is gone...and then I'm terrified of who's going to be next.  Ironically, I'm not as afraid of myself dying as I am of my siblings or my mother...
