    That’s a lot to deal with. Please take some moments for yourself as you’re able.

    I'm so sorry, NL.

    Just a single part of that would be stressful on its own - all together it looks terrible. Please take care of yourself.

    Oxygen mask, NL. You can’t help anyone now or in the future if you don’t protect yourself.

    NL, that must be so overwhelming. I am so sorry that certain family members are only adding to the stress and grief you're feeling. Hugs to you. <3<3<3<3<3

    Hugs and love @NerdLady . I want to remind you that you are a good person no matter what the monsters inside and outside of your head are saying. If you want to help your grandmother, that's fine, but it is also very okay to say no. You need to take care of yourself first and foremost. Maybe you can help later when you're more up to it. Or not. It doesn't matter the decision. YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL, LOVING, SWEET, GOOD PERSON.

    My mom called me tonight, and I had to break some terrible news to her based on what she told me. Her best friend from college has terminal cancer. Apparently, she decided to stop dialysis recently, but my mom was hoping that if she continued that bff would be able to go travel to the Philippines and die surrounded by family (has lived in LA for many years). Mom added some other info, and I had to break it to her that bff was not going to be able to travel at all and may not even go back to her house before the end. :sad:

    We just found out that some friends of D’s just lost their baby. She was due in January, so definitely over 22 weeks. Just so very shitty all around.

  21. My principal's wife is now on comfort care. I think its finally hitting him that this is the end and I wish I could do something more to help. His kids are understandably not handling it well. Cancer sucks.

    I still get phantom kicks sometimes and it’s really freaky.

    My mom's best friend hung on much longer than I expected. She just passed. My mom was the last person she talked to before she slipped into sleep then went. My mom has been calling me all day just out of a loss of what to do with herself.

    I’m sorry. Such a rough time for your mom, but at least she was able to have a little more time with her friend. Though it’s never enough time.
