I'm in graduate school persuing a career to help others one day. I enjoy riding horses playing the piano, writing poetry, and cooking.
About my Loss:
I am currently in the state of loss. My mother is dying of pancreatic cancer. I could get the phone call any day. It's so difficult. I feel a pain in my heart I haven't felt before. I get anxiety and depression. I'm lucky to eat on a day to day basis. I feel emotionally fatigued. Things are so surreal it's strange talking about it. I'm helping to plan the funeral and write the obituary which is difficult. Things blur and I don't know. I just someone to talk with someone to help me understand this process and to reassure me that I'm not going crazy.
