And then one day

And then one day you realize how much the people around you need you. They're also suffering in their own ways. These feelings of no one needing us, and not wanting us have kept us blind for too long. My brother was diagnosed with Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) 2 days ago. When we heard the news I just froze. I couldnt react. It didn't feel real. But what I remember most is the way he looked at me. He looked at me as if to say "help me im scared ". I cannot get that look out of my head. I realized my family needs me. My children which I already knew.. My mom and brother need me to be strong for them. I haven't figured it all out yet, but Somehow, some way im going to put my Superwoman cape back on and help fight another battle. Its not about me anymore... I can do this

Hi EveryDay.

You're right: suffering is universal. I'm glad you see that. When putting on your cape please remember that Superwoman needs her Fortress of Solitude also :)

Thanks Ronbo. I will always try to remember that. Hope you have a wonderful day

That's awful, you will be going through a lot for some time, I know you will have the strength because you are a lovely caring person.

If you need to escape you can come onto here and let off some steam.
