    I can say that I am traumatized by the amount

    of losses I have suffered. The most recent: 2 days ago I found out that an ex boyfriend (who became a true friend even, if we lost touch) passed away 11years ago! As the years went by, I wondered about him. I hoped our paths would cross and we would continue to have fun...

    Would it be emotionally harmful to ask my dead

    ex's (who was also a good friend post break up) girlfriend how he died 11 years ago? I found out 2 days ago. We would lose touch in the past and find eachother again (as true, platonicfriends). I saw her info on social media. In poor taste? Offensive to her? I am just trying to...

    Both Material And Emotional

    Friends Come And Go..

    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.
