One of my close friends, is having a week that would bury most people. I can't take away her pain. I just listen, support her, do anything she asks, and try and distract her. This is real life, and it will kick your ass...
  1. She is in the middle of a divorce from a 24 year marriage, and found out her soon-to-be ex husband has started a relationship with his yoga instructor. All before the ink has dried on the divorce papers.
  2. Her children attended a birthday party, where the host parent was neglectful, and had unsecured firearms in the house. A child, picked up a gun and pointed it another child. DCF, is now involved, as they should be.
  3. Her daughter was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Side effects are horrible, including premature death.
  4. Final judgement on the end of her marriage of 24 years.
  5. Life can be brutal. Enjoy the small wonderful things in your day-to-day existence. I hope no one else has a week this rough.
