Life Is Precious

Life is so precious and ever so fragile. We don’t often think about that until something happens to someone we love.
My sister-in-law passed  away Sunday night. She had a couple over for dinner that night and seemed fine. However,  after they left she started to have difficulty breathing. Her husband called for an ambulance and she was rushed to the hospital where she coded and they tried to bring her back but it was too late.
We are very close as a family on my side and my husbands as well. She was not just my sister-in-law. She was also my close friend. I will miss her very much. The memorial talk is this afternoon.
Its been a lot to handle for me these past few weeks. Therapy has been very intense. As embarrassing as it is to admit  to this, I often dissociate  to escape feeling difficult emotions and memories. I did this when I was younger too. I am convinced that there will come a time when the trauma of the past will be  behind me and I wont need to think about it or distress over it anymore. I am almost there. But that wont stop me from helping others to find their voice. Everyone needs validation and there are many people out there that carry tremendous pain inside because they don’t have an outlet to receive
validation for the horrors they went through. That is so unfair and very sad. If my blog helps others to find their courage and speak out then this will make me very happy that all my efforts actually benefit these people.
