restingpieces Posted May 3, 2010 Share Posted May 3, 2010 In just one day, my grandfather was diagnosed with throat cancer and then my dad was admitted to the hospital after some chest pain - only for us to discover he needed a bypass! The surgery was problematic but he did make it out alive. He's not all that well... Then, days later, my little brother attempted suicide. Family has slowly started to trickle back to their respective locations around the country as things are seemingly settling down and dad is out of the hospital. But I'm here, helping mom and dad - feeling overwhelmed with all of these emotions of what's going on in my home. I was doing remarkably well in healing leading up to all of this misfortune... now, I just need some sort of comfort. I don't intend to reach out to my ex - what would I get? "That sucks, I'm sorry." But the urge is there and that has me down. I feel like in just feeling it I'm taking steps backward... just a fleeting moment of weakness, right? Link to comment
