I lost my uncle to cancer about 1 1/2 years ago or so (I think..It's been so hectic since..)
and we found out maybe 3 weeks ago that my great aunt has cancer..in three places. Bone, Breast, And Liver...
She's going to fight it as much as she can, but she doesn't want to prolong it..
After my uncle passed away, My depression took a bad turn.. I was 16, almost 17 (18 now) and was suddenly clinging to my mom like a 5 year old, following her everywhere..
I hate this..my great aunt and I have been somewhat close, off and on, since I was little..
Not only that, but I guess this could be considered a 'loss' of sorts..
My grandparents are getting a divorce. They've been together since before I was born (my mom considers my grandfather to be her father)
.......as you can tell, he isn't my blood grandfather..
We don't know if he'll ever see us again..
He's the guy who took me on motorcycle rides and to the beach as a little kid.. He was my dad figure for years.. My bio dad didn't want much to do with me and was in and out of jail. He saw his granddaughter for the first time at FOUR MONTHS OLD!
But back to my grandfather..
We've been sooo close over the years.. Even when my grandparents moved to FL 6 or so years ago, every time I visited (2x a year) we'd do something..go somewhere..
I'm so torn right now..i'm losing my great aunt to something I hate so much..and losing my grandfather to something I hate just as much..ugh..I wish I could just make it all stop.
I don't know what i'll do when the divorce is final and my great aunt loses her fight..
