2010 was a year of death and mourning. 2011 was a year of stress.
And now, the defining factor for 2012 so far is that my uncle was fired from his job (He's a former drug addict that went missing and was presumed dead, so this is very worrying). The same day I learn this news, I also learn that my grandmother has leukemia. While it is responding very well to low doses of medication, the doctor said that one crisis event could set that off and that if higher doses of medication don't work, she'll only have maybe 2-3 weeks left to live.
Another bad thing being that I don't think I can handle being with my needy boyfriend for too much longer. I don't see the relationship lasting too much longer and we're on a break right now.
This is going on 3 years of bad things happening. It's getting very tiresome.
Don't listen to the doctors. They start talking time limits then tell them to shut up. They like to play God and are often very bad at it. My grandpa was supposed to die as this 7 or 8 times in 20 years. my other grandfather (lukemia) was supposed to die several times too and he lived 13 years with it. They don't know everything and they are just making predictions. Nothing more. So keep your chin up and put on the best face you can for her. It's hard I know. 2 grandmothers of cirosis of the liver and two grandfathers on lukemia and the other bone marrow cancer.
With the boyfriend, if he isn't worthy, dump him. Don't stay in a stressful relationship when you have bigger and better things to deal with. A smothering man is a man who is a bit to emotional in my opinion. That could lead to rage, jealousy and more. Good luck and I Hope things get better.
