    Last week my 3 year old cousin got bacterial meningitus and died within 5 days and her birthday was 2 weeks away. Now today i learn my grandfather who's over 80 years old has multiple cancers. Hes been given his last rights 3 or 4 times before in his life and it seems when he gets it this time itll be the last. Life just seems to want me to suffer.

    It's especially sad when a child dies, older people have lived a life, so it's understandable, even though it's still sad.
    But it's always so sad for all who are left behind.
    You will all meet up one day, i believe.
    All the best to you

    I wanna thank you guys that replied before i talk about my new issue.

    Now for the new shitty news my sister in laws father well now his liver is failing. I also got to talk to my dad whos visiting my grandparents on his side a few states over he said my grandfather has prostate cancer that spread to the bone. The doctors cant do anything about the cancer in the bones but they can atleast make him comfortable and treat the prostate cancer as best they can to extend his life a little bit how much a little bit is idk but atleast my aunts and uncles can maybe get there to say goodbye.
    hoping this is the last thing i need to add to this thread

    Aww, I'm sorry to hear about that....*sigh* that must be difficult for you....but at least take comfort in the fact that your grandfather won't have to suffer anymore, and soon he will be at peace. I guess that's how I try to look at these things. Here if you wanna talk :arms:

    Hi, I'm Nicolas and i' m worried about my grand father, in fact, is in a retirement home and every time i go to see him he don't do nothing, is social live is not really ecxiting and he is becoming angry! I've heard about Play Therapy but do you have any forum that talk about this and do you know if it could be good for him to participate to one these therapy?
    I've heard about this website :
    What do you think of this!

    Hi everyone I just wanted to get back to this thread now since Im less depressed now and wanted to say that my grandfather will be getting his military honors monday. He was in the army for 20 years and was in 2 wars nobody can seem to agree on how many purple hearts 2 or 3 and multiple high up medals. I havent heard much about my sister in laws father besides hes doing better and i think hes out of the hospital now and in another facility. Thanks to everyone who posted here!
