My brother's death cirrhosis

My brother just died of cirrhosis of the liver he was only 49. My brother was smart and successful but he could not stop drinking. Both our parents were alcoholics our father died of cirrhosis at age 49 just like my brother. My mom stopped drinking at 49 when she was told she had cirrhosis and never took another drop of alcohol. She died at 76 her liver disease finally catching up with her. My brother was in and out of rehab and I tried everything to save him…. but I guess he didn’t want to be…See More

Totally tired of my life and lack of emotions.

My mother had a stroke in October of 2015. She changed over night due to the aphasia and brain damage. She was a new person, half of who she once was. I began grieving my mother in October. I turned of all emotion and detached myself during the caregiving. It was just way too hard for me to deal with her conditions and my father's emotions. My family are gifted with abilities, mine was empathy and third sight. Most may not believe in that stuff, but it is more than real to me due to years of…See More
