    i am posting this because I need a little support to get me through the next few days.

    This year has been crazy.

    As most of you know and my grandmother passed away in April and you were all so nice to me and made me feel like i had somewhere to express myself. I end up being the rock a lot and because of that friends and famiy think i am strong shoulder to lean on .... But behind closed doors sometimes I feel like I need a shoulder also. You were all there for me during that time and I thank you....

    So just recently my aunt on the same side went in for a lung surgery and she was supposed to be home recouping in 4 days.... Well there were some complications and ended up in a coma and then passing away.

    My dad is a mess and i am in shock. The wake is tommorow and I have seen my cousins but am still in shock... This was not supposed to happen. She was onlyu 59 and I think that is part of my shock. I put myself into my cousins shoes and can't imagine loosing one of my parents at this stage in my life.... My heart goes out to her and the family..

    On the other hand, Aunt Fran was close to me and she was so sweet and loving to everyone all the time. She never spoke bad about anyone and loved you unconditionally. I just feel like we just went through all this and here we are again a few months later burying my aunt. What a mess.

    Thank you for letting me get this off my chest. I feel so sad and so stressed.

      Oh Kim, I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you. Hopefully we can be your shoulder to lean on since everyone else needs to lean on yours. I'm so sorry for your loss.

          wow that's got to be really hard to take, and so hard when people look to you to always be the strong one ... i'm so sorry! you definitely have the forum for support. hang in there!

          be proud that your wedding will offer your family a joyous occasion to get together for, and know that your dearly departed will be there in spirit.

            I am so sorry to hear that you and your family are going through this. It is never easy, and when you have to do it more than once in a short period of time, I think it is a bit harder.

            If you need to talk, I am here. Don't hesitate to lean on my shoulder if you need to! You can't always be there for everyone else and not have anyone for you to lean on.

                Kim, when a loved one passes it is never easy. It is ok if you are not the rock. Please know that I am so sorry for your loss and will help you any way that I can. Even if you just want to talk or vent.

                kim that is so horrible i am so sad for you right now.

                i am glad that you can find some comfort here, that you recognize its not just all about wedding planning, but a place to find friends and discuss everything in our lives.
