When it rains, it pours. [View all]

My grandpa refused any further treatments, meds or anything other than food since seeing grandma in a vision a couple of weeks ago.
He's ready to join her.
I just hope I can get to see him once more.

Now my dad is in the hospital because his chemo didn't work for his leukemia. His spleen is the size of a football.

I am the one that everyone in the family looks too for emotional support now, why, I don't know.

I just want to go hide and have a good cry right now.

But, gotta be strong.

This is one of those rare times I wish I HAD a shoulder to cry on.

Just needed to get that out.

I don't have anyone I can talk to in person about such things.

I think I'm gonna get drunk tonight and just let it out.

*edit*

Yes, this IS in fact, a shameless attempt to get sympathy, but I don't care, I could sure use some right now.
