    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...
