Can't Understand What's Happening
In November my partner's Mother died very suddenly from a stroke and then a heart attack. It absolutely tore our world apart. I was 100% supportive of my partner whilst he was going through this terrible ordeal until early January when my Mother got taken into hospital with severe back pain, this was then diagnosed as a very rare aggressive type of kidney cancer which had spread all over her body. She died 5 weeks later. My Mum was the type of person to never get ill so this was an incredible shock to all of us!
My partner rings me up on Saturday (exactly 6 weeks after my Mother's death) and tearfully told me his brother died suddenly. We honestly can not believe what is happening to us and most of all we definitely don't understand what's happening or why the universe/God is testing us. We've only been together for 9 months and already we've had to deal with three major deaths in the space of 4 months- something that most couples deal with after being together for years. I feel our 'Honeymoon period' has been snatched from us. Everyday we wish none of this ever happened and that it was all back to normal.
