Lost Nearly Everything
I am 36, and a month ago, my father passed away on March 15 in his apartment. A week prior to his passing I promised him I would make his favorite corned beef and cabbage dinner. That was the last time I saw him and I at least got to say I loved him. 4 Days later on March 19 my Grandfather passed away. His unfortunate passing was expected, but my Grandfather was a proud Marine, and a huge father figure toward me especially since my parents were divorced. A week later the family dog passed away, and now our family cat is going. My girlfriend broke up with me a few days ago and my rent was raised to a much larger amount than expected :) The staggering amount of loss has prevented me from really focusing on any one thing. I just find it very crazy that so much has been lost in as little as 3 months into the new year. I know I will get through it, and I know there are other people less fortunate, but man!
