    The death of a loved one. At some point I woke up saying to myself that I had to leave it all in the past.

    The most difficult thing in my life is education, especially exams. I need to study pure maths, science and language. At the outset, I have to study. From such an early age, there are so many things to learn about. To overcome that stress of studying, it takes a lot of effort.

    I'm amazed by some of the heartfelt answers here. I don't think there's much I can add - the death of loved ones has hit me hard, at times, but one thing that I felt was just as affecting (if not moreso) was a long period of isolation when my job required constant travel. Feeling very alone and cut-off from everyone I knew for long periods of time was quite hard to deal with, at the time.

    Everybody here touched my heart. Loss of a dear one is something I have experienced as well, and only time can heal that wound. This is a very poignant question. I really wouldn't know what to pick, as there are lots of incredibly difficult things I had to deal with in my life, and they weren't all related to health issues. I will stick with health issues, because it's easier. I had several major surgeries that saved my life. That was rough. I can't remember how many times I ended up in the hospital with pneumonias and other serious illnesses. I also had Rubella during the first trimester of my pregnancy. Not knowing (it was  1971), whether I was going to give birth to a healthy child was agonizing for me, because the doctor said we were looking at a 50-50 chance, and this was my first child. Thankfully, she was born healthy, but I would have loved her just the same if it had been the other way.

    The most difficult thing that I had to deal with is watching my daughter die at the age of 29 of complications from the Aids virus and to know that the nurse and social workers at the hospital trying to convince me to pull the plug.  My religion says thou shall not kill.  Holding the key to life and death in my hands was something I refuse to do.  I wish everyday that my beautiful daughter was here with me.  When my granddaughters come to visit, that is when I get to share my love for my daughter through them.

    My personal experience with a friend who out of the sudden decided to terminate our relationship without any reasons. We were completely cut off without any contact thereafter.

    I had thought it over a thousand times but still cannot find my answer to it.

    Divorce and death are among the hard things I have had to endure. Lack of knowledge, maturity, and support rendered me unable to handle them well. I listed both because I am not sure which one was the most difficult.

    I suffered a pretty complicated case of appendicitis while I was by myself away from family and close friends. I was bedridden for 2 straight months and was instructed to visit the clinic everyday to have my wound washed out. Towards the last few weeks when I had regained a lot of my strength and agility, I was taught by the nurses how to tend to my own wound care. It was still a painful/uncomfortable experience, but I believe the whole ordeal just gave me new-found appreciation of family, friends and good health!

    What profits a man if he gains the whole world but losses his own soul. All things that is opposite to Love always hurt us in part or in whole. Greed, envy, etc. are all part of us but we all need to shift our thinking before it can engulf us. Once I always consider love to be very girly, a very stupid word in the dictionary.

    When you fall in love everything will be clear to you. Sometimes you need to get hurt to fall in love. You will learn to value people around you.

    I lost my big brother last year. We were very close and I had to make the decision, alone, to take him off life support. I miss him terribly. I know he is still with me but I miss hearing him say, "hey, beautiful" and I miss his hugs. I miss my children having him to turn to because he was an awesome uncle.  I know it will get better and he wants me to be happy and move on. But right now it is still hard.
