Multiple Deaths in a very short time

by Aimee Laufhutte
(Jacksonville, FL)

My boyfriend of 3 years father past away suddenly. He went into the hospital for a puncture wound to his hand, and a week and a half later his organs started shutting down. IN the last couple of days he was alive he was on 100% oxygen, and his wife decided it was time to take him off the machines. I had no time to deal with what had happened. There was no time to say goodbye or really understand what had happened. About a 2 weeks after that my best friend for years mother who had been fighting colon and lung cancer stage 4, and a brain tumor past away. I jumped on a plane and was there every step of the way. This was very hard I feel like I lost a father figure and a mother figure in a months time. I never realized how hard this would be on me. I have not been the same, I am sad all the time, I cant focus. I just started therapy to really address the way I am feeling and work through it. I cant even explain what I am feeling because I dont know. I was looking up grief, and I came upon this site. I have read some of the stories and now I know that what I am going through is normal, and I am not alone with this.
