    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...

    I'm Not Able

    It seems to me, that having gone through the loss of loved ones many times since I was 8 would  have given me some kind of insight.  Knowing what people need from us in their own time of loss.  But it did not give me any insight.  Nothing ever made me feel any...

    What Do You Say?
