Today my cousin and my aunt were shot and killed by my cousin's ex husband.
I'm so upset over this. I can't stop crying and I feel anxious. I can't get still or focus on anything.
I think I would be handling it a lot better if they were out together and just got killed in a car wreck or something but I can't accept why someone would shoot them on purpose.
Have any of you experienced something like this before?
Oh honey, I'm so, so sorry. That's such a terrible thing to happen and SO senseless. x x
Please take good care of yourself at this time. It's totally understandable that you won't be able to focus on anything else for a time. Just concentrate on gettng through the next few days minute by minute. Are there people around you that will look after you through the worst of the shock? x
I am so sorry that such an awful thing has happened to your family, sweetheart. I really hope that you get some answers as to how and why this happened soon, although I know they won't take away the pain.
hello welcome. let me start b saying how sorry i am to hear of your tragic loss.i have not personally experienced this so i cant provide u with answers but my thoughts and prayers are with u, here if u need to chat
Thank you ladies. The police dept has now told us exactly what happened. It's horrible They had already been shot and injured and were trying to get away from him when he shot them in the head. I'm so horrified by this. My friends here where we live at saw it on the news but no names were released. Now that they know it was my family member's I've had a lot of people step in to help me out around the house and with the kids.
I just don't know what to do with myself I try to keep myself busy so I don't think too much about it but it's hard.
I'm so sorry sweetheart x x That's just so awful I'm glad that there are people around to help you out x
Please don't be too hard on yourself if you find you can't keep your mind off it. It's natural that it will be on your mind at the moment. You're doing the right thing by keeping busy but do try to rest as much as possible too x x
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers x x
