My Heart Hurts

Ever read a post that makes you so sad that you can't even cry because it just brings up this great big shitpile of stuff that you don't even know how to deal with?

If not, and if you'd like to (which probably makes you a little bit of a freak) Ms. Lori's post of last night did that all for me.

I can't help. I'm a "fixer" and I can't help. Sometimes you just have to sit there and take it.

I'm gonna go cast something on for that chick. I can't help, but I can knit.

heartbreaking :(
You're such a kind soul, really. We are, none of us, ever actually ready to lose a parent, even if they are chronically ill, or in tremendous pain, or even just ready to pack it in. Our lives cannot be the same without them. My mother passed 5 years ago, and I still occasionally pick up the phone to call her, if something exciting happens with the girls.
I wanted to, but I couldn't comment. What's the protocol in a case like this? I have much in common with her, yet I don't think she needs to hear my story right now.
I can't even wrap my head around what she is going through, how do you comment to something like that. I immediately pictured my own mother and wonder what I'm going to do without her when she leaves us.

I still haven't stopped crying, I think I need to call my mom and tell her how much I love her.
It helps knowing others are thinking of you and yours. Eventually. Can't fix it, but it helps. Knit. ::hugs::

it's hard losing a parent. but at least she knows what's going on. we weren't given the option of knowledge, and my dad's death was a surprise.
