Re: death of 16 year old cousin Tuesday morning
Hi Tracey -
thanks so much for the reply. My cousin's death adds to the list of complicated grief issues that I continue to struggle with. My best friend at age 28 died from breast cancer, my uncle died in 2009 from lung cancer, my maternal grandfather's 11 year death anniversary is 3/9, and I have lost many friends over the past 10 years to illness, car accidents, and one to suicide. Grief always seem to be difficult for me to deal with. I find myself in a caretaker role and then if the person does not survive I am consummed with guilt and often take it out on myself. The funeral for my cousin is tomorrow. I have to be honest, I am not looking forward to going. I know that sounds aweful, but I just don't feel like dealing with any more grief. My family is devastated and it is really going to be a difficult day. Anyway, thanks again for your knid words!
