Too much to bear
by Kathie Grace
I'm 58 yrs old, My father who I wasn't really close to died at 69 from aorta. Six weeks later my 46 year old sister died from blood disease thrombocytopenia. Three years later my oldest brother 46 found dead in abandoned building by drug overdose. Nine days later 23 year old daughter left house, on veterans day never came home, murder by serial killer Joseph Metheny in Baltimore Md. One and a half year later husband died second day into trial with heart. Four years later lost youngest brother 47 to cirrhosis of the liver. Two years later lost mom at 78 yrs of age. One year later to the day mom died lost stepfather. I cope pretty well most of time. I'm bipolar and I work and have strong faith, but it's the holidays and having very rough time right now. Someone told me that my family wouldn't want me to be grieving right now, nor my family that is still alive, which consists of 3 other children, grand children and great grand children. That advice didn't seem to help much.
