Life’s a Bitch

Eight years ago, almost to the day, my brother woke up, stumbled into my mom’s room and peed in her closet while emphatically requesting that someone remove the socks he wasn’t wearing. That day marked the first of an eight year battle; yesterday that battle ended.

I am so sorry to read this. You're in my prayers and thoughts.

Your blog helped me through a hard time I went through recently, and I wish somehow I could help you.

Leila,

You have my heartfelt condolences on your loss. You have helped me so much in the nearly two years I've read your blog, especially during the spiraling hypochondria I've endured since my dad's death this spring. Life is never the same, but God is in control of everything. I'm still praying for you.
God Bless

It's all in my head.... hopefully. said...

My heart goes out to you and your family. Such a terrible thing. Poor guy :(

Hi Leila,

I just stopped in this evening to see if you might be back, and saw this post about your brother. I am so sorry. It is so hard to understand when someone dies young, or in their prime. I have alot of trouble with it. It makes no sense at all. I won't offer any answers only my thoughts and prayers for him and for you. T.

I don't know what to say to explain how sorry I am. This is an incredible loss that is explanation-less. I only hope you will get peace from this someday.
