*kicks universe*

I am so sick of lousy scary things happening to people I care about. Khover getting fired, my dad being diagnosed with diverticulitis, and now some news from a friend that is just horrible on top of what has been a lousy fifteen months without the recent news. I can't help anyone, can't do anything, can't even suffer for them.

*kicks universe again*

Edited to respond to Sherri's comment:

I hope I didn't come off as thinking this was about me, because it's not. In fact, I'd rather this was happening to me as opposed to the people it IS happening to. I know that I have wonderful, loving friends, and my thanks go out to all of you for all the support over the miles and the years. Sherri, thank you for the practical suggestion about how I can help at least one friend.

And the universe continues to be shitty--another forum friend just found out her husband has a tumor in his lung, and a former co-worker was finally diagnosed with MS after two years of doctors' visits, tests and whatnot. Oddly enough, the latter is actually semi-good news, because the penultimate diagnosis was Parkinson's, which is harder to deal with at 46 than MS. I need to pack up all of my "first year with MS" books and things and take them to her when I take the pups in for their 12,000 mile tuneup in two weeks.

It helps to take refuge in the practical things.

Everybody gets to carry their own burdens. Keep in mind all the people who love you feel the same whenever you hit a bump or have a rough time. Yet we all keep going.

*HUGS* Jammies.

I know what you mean. With the exception of my latest e-book coming out (and that was a mixed blessing) and JammiesFest this year has pretty much sucked for me as well.

So sorry it's been sucky. Truly. Sorry. Furry hugs.

Sherri, read the edited version--I did not mean this to be about me. Thank you for caring about my bumps!

Rob, congrats on the e-book, and JammiesFest wouldn't be the same without you. *smooch*

Becs, you've had some sucky stuff yourself this year. Thank you for extending your caring, and hugs right back atcha.
