    My best friend was shot and killed by her ex back in 1990. She was only 34 and my 16 year old daughter was spending the night with her daughter when the event took place. Kids were in danger, but thank God they were not hurt badly other than my daughter suffered a terrific black eye when she caught glass and BB's from him shooting through the door with a shotgun.  It was a shocker I never quite got over. I knew her ex and his family as long as I did her and her family since grade school. The community was stunned with disbelief. Things just don't happen like that in small towns is truly a myth.

    There have been some rough times but probably the worst is experiencing a brief episode of "surgical awareness" during a C-section.  The pain was horrendous and I was paralyzed from anesthesia so couldn't tell them I was feeling the surgery.

    It only lasted seconds but left a mark. I am petrified of having surgery now.

    To say this happened directly to me would be selfish, but it was the worst thing to impact me. My mother was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in June of last year. She has never smoked and showed no symptoms. When it was found, the damage was beyond repair. It had moved from one lung to another and three more tumors in her spine- one pinching her spinal chord. To avoid the potential of paralysis, she was immediately treated with very heavy doses of radiation. Then chemo. It was a grueling first 3 months. While I will never be able to fathom the thoughts she deals with everyday (yes she is still fighting) being the daughter of a cancer patient is the most mentally excruciating experience I have ever encountered. Aside from the obvious trauma of seeing my mother deteriorate in front of me, I was ostracized by my friends. As I think any breathing human being would endure a slew of emotions, I was extremely angry in the beginning. Then I was sad. But rather than having my friends to support me, they told me my uncontrollable public display of emotions was embarrassing and intolerable. They cut me off. I spent the better half of six months during her treatment alone, with my 4 year old nephew (who was adopted by my parents from my brother and now unable to be cared for by them) watching my mother slip further and further away from me. Of all my friends, she was the best. So when I would complain to her about my friends being crappy, I couldn't do that anymore but I couldn't turn to my friends either. In the months, I have learned how to cope, however, the worst is yet to come. As if this hasn't been miserable enough... I sit here waiting for worse... and then I think about her thinking... which is the worst. Cancer is not selective or merciful. It makes a victim of everyone involved. No human soul should ever feel this agony day in and day out.

    Dear brittvan
    In 1962, I lost my father.This is the worst thing happen to me.Because on that days, we-- four- my elder brother, elder sister,myself and my young sister are small children. The very unexpected death of my father put my mother in great trouble. Being a house wife who have very limited contact with out side world, does not know what to do and do not know how to look after the children. No one to help.
    My brother, left his school studies and decided to join in a wood company, to help mother. His wages only the income sources of our home. With the help of local co-operative Bank, we bought two cows and managed to improve our financial position.
    The insecurity, insult from others are too un-bearable to us. Even the close relatives tried to cheat us and tried to make the land and house belong to us to their possession .
    Anyhow, we managed all this.
    But that dark days are  the worst days in our life.
