My cousin may have dementia

I have a cousin who is 81 y.o. living in Europe and I used to call her periodically or exchange pleasantries via email. I was about to visit her and her son in April but the COVID hit and ruined my travel plans. The last time I had a normal conversation with her was July 17. Today I called her and she hung up first. I called her back and she mumbled some unpleasantries then ...

Why don't I feel all that sad?

Hello all, not too long ago someone I knew (I suppose you could call them a family friend) passed away due to old age. I'm not certain how close you can say the two of us were, but my family knew hers and she knew me ever since I was a baby. In some ways she was like a third grandmother to me, I guess. In some ways, perhaps, she was even more of a ...

When someone dies should I just lie to their friend/family?

So basically I couldn't care less about human life but sometimes people I know post on Facebook that someone they know died. Recently my friend said a good friend of hers died of cancer. Should I just lie to her and say my condolences or I'm sorry for your loss? I am one of those misenthrope though unfortunately I can't avoid human society. So yea... I couldn't care less if people died but I still ...

When does the hurting stop?

I was lying in bed just now when an image popped into my head.
The face of a gentle giant, framed by a mane of golden hair.
Suddenly, my body started shaking, and I cried like I haven’t done in ages.
It was G.
G. was my best friend when I was in my 20’s and early 30’s.
We both had similar childhoods, and bonded the moment we met. After a long and difficult battle ...

Visiting Graves...relations.

I was going to entitle this as "visiting my dead relatives" but I thought twice. Trying to be respectful and all that.

Brother died a year ago aged 50. He probably lived 150 years worth into those 50 though. Didn't go to his funeral and only got news of his death via sms whilst I was in work.

He's got a plot close to my stepdad, gran and grandad and my favourite aunt.

I don't ...

My 21 year old son just took his own life two weeks ago, and I found him. I feel like I’ve been shattered into a million pieces and have so much guilt. And what if’s. And I’m mad at the mental health care system for failing him and his dad for being abusive. Anyone else experience loss of a child or loved one to suicide? I feel like I’ll never survive this.

Unresolved feelings & my sisters death

My sister died of cancer last year.
Prior to her death she & I had not talked for 2 yrs. I tried to talk to her but she was very stubborn about it, she even wrote me a letter saying she felt better without me in her life.
This fight was horrific for me because I had always been there for her when she had problems, I listened to her, I supported her, I was ...

My dad passed away

At the end of 2017 my dad was diagnosed with quite advanced bowel cancer and his prognosis wasn't great.
A week or two ago my dad got really ill with an infection but the doctors struggled to find the cause and control it. He deteriorated really quickly on Wednesday and we lost him.

We're all shocked and devastated. I'm struggling to get my head around it all. I just didn't expect it to happen so ...
