I AM SOOOO SORRY!!!!!!!!!! But believe me I know the when do I get a break feeling. For me I just have to TRUST the LORD and lean on him HEAVILY!!! Life can really seem like it is burying you and it does sometimes. But just keep your head high and do the best you can. I am really truly sorry for all that you are going through. I will say a prayer. Prayers work:) Just seems like no light at the end of the tunnel I know, there is but it may be a VERY long tunnel it sounds like.

Thank you so much, everyone. It is really humbling to know that so many of you took the time to sympathize with an internet stranger when you’ve certainly got your own problems to worry about too (Country, I KNOW you’ve had rough times, it means so much to me to have your sympathy when I know that my problems are a pretty small hill of beans next to other people’s). I am starting to slowly realize that there’s never going to be a kindly TV announcer voice from out of the blue saying, “And now back to the December’s regularly scheduled life.” Maybe my Mother-In-Law is going to die “too soon”, but now because of my unplanned pregnancy, she’ll get to be a grandma before she goes. Maybe things will never really get better, but I’m starting to come to peace with the idea that nobody is guaranteed an easy life. I’ve been pretty immature for a long time with all of this, basically just throwing a low-level tantrum because didn’t I DESERVE to be happy? /sigh. Ah, growing up. It’s nice to know that I am not alone. Thank you all, so so much.

I just wanted to throw my two cents in too–hang in there. You are clearly an amazingly strong woman who has been hanging tough for a number of months. I am sorry you have had such a crappy year so far, but keep on keeping on–you sound totally together right now for all the stuff you’ve gone through and that’s amazing…seriously, I can’t say that enough. You are so strong! Remember that. I wish you continued strength, health, and love in the coming months!

Everyone has their struggles and they can all be devistating to us in different ways. I don’t believe anyone has the “easy” way in life for the most part, because they are struggleing in some way or another. Maybe you can’t see it from the outside, but they feel it on the inside. I do have a lot going against me but I have more going for me…>GOD and my fiance:) That makes everything OK:)
