    I can't believe that it's been less than 3 months and my father has already found a new wife. I'm still in mourning and I really don't know what to do

    My loss count since 2007? 12. Four friends and acquaintances (2 of them suicides), all four grandparents, an aunt, my childhood dog, and two cousins. I (along with the rest of my family) am a wee bit exhausted.
