I'm glad you asked this. I have to say something I feel is very important, and something I know, all too well. Life is going to throw us hardships, some of us will experience more than others. And some experiences will be absolutely devasting and life altering. As you know, from the different subjects I write about, I have endured my brothers suicide, followed exactly one year, to the day, my fathers death. I was his primary care provider. I was the only sibling with no children, therefore I gladly stepped up and would have done it anyway. Dad was my best friend and it is the one action in my life I am most proud of. My marriage crumbled, as often does during hardships, such as suicide. I sold my home and moved home to take care of Dad and now take care of Mom. I am not explaining this for sympathy. I don't require that nor do I want it. I am explaining it because, what got us through, all of us, and still does, to this day, is humor. If we, as a family, continued to look miserable, we would have all crumbled. Of course it was and is a long road, irrepariably changed by these circumstances. After the initial stages of grief, we made it, and still do, a point of laughing as often as possible. That is one thing I feel very strongly about, obviously by the length of this answer.
