    So my grandma who raised me died about a week

    ago, and I'm not really upset, I never was really. I guess I kinda saw it coming or something. Anyway it's not hitting me as hard as it is the rest of the family. I'm 16 but right now I feel like I'm kinda everybody's rock.

    My husbands father passed away this morning.

    He seems to be doing alright and I will get him through it along with the kids. However it brings back a lot about myself losing my adoptive father. Which I will not talk to them about at this moment in time. Instead I will just write it out which is usually what works best...

    We haven't spoke for 5 years due to a family disagreement... I'm so gutted and love her so much. What can I do? Been funeral and spoke to dad, but feel so patronising .... Dad all alone and not answering phone 😭😭😭

    I'm so sad. All the time.

    It's been 10 weeks. Soon enough there will be more time that she's been gone than she was here. I miss her so much. I put a picture of her in my locket. When I think of her I just squeeze it in my hand. So far it's the only thing that has made me feel better. I wish I could...
