Anger and Sadness

Anger at the farce that was called a Parish Council Meeting, at my so called friend who is a Parish Councillor being congratulated on her attempts at mediation between the 2 parties and steaming anger at the fact she so graciously thanked everyone!
But they have not won yet, round 2 is about to begin!

Sadness at the sudden death of my Aunty, who had cared for many people , she was a nurse, been a good friend to many more. She was married to my mother's brother, an alcoholic, she stuck by him through thick and thin until his death in 2004. She had just recently sold her house and found a lovely flat and was beginning life afresh. She was also my mothers twin they shared the exact same birthday and birth year mum had known her since they where 14!
Mum is feeling very vunerable at the moment.

I had planned to contact the specialist again re: 'the pain' which is slowly creeping back, but I may have to put it off as I will have a funeral to attend next week.

What a mixture of emotions you must be going through at the moment. Your Aunty sounds like she was a special lady who deserved to have some enjoyment in her new lease of life...so sad that it ws cut short. Thinking of you and your family...especially your Mum and sending a {{HUG}}

My condolences to you, Libby, on the loss of your aunt. It's particularly poignant that she was felled just as she had a chance to live her life on her own terms.

I hope your anger has abated a bit.

My heart goes out to you, with all these trials/burdens.

But please, don't put off finding out about your own health. How will you do anything, for anyone, if you do not regain your health? -sigh-

Oh dear, what a lot of mixed emotions for you to deal with at the moment. I'm sorry to hear about your auntie, she sounds like such a nice person. It must be very hard on your Mum!

Libby: As Mari-Nanci has already said, make sure your health is being looked after. You have enough to deal with without putting your own health in danger.
So sorry to hear of your Aunty's passing, just when she was starting a new life for herself. Your Mum will need a lot of emotional support at next week's funeral.
All of us out here in blogdom will be sending you positive vibes.

So sorry to hear your news Libby. I am sending you hugs. What a shame your aunty passed away when things were looking sorted. Do look after yourself as you will need the strength over the next few days.

Hugs from us all.

Your sadness at losing your Aunty has touched all of us - and there are a lot of us sending you best wishes and you are in our thoughts which I hope helps at this sad time.

I can imagine what a terrible shock it was for all your family and your mother being her 'twin' will naturally feel very vulnerable as you said - but she has a wonderful family around her with you all - and I know that she will take comfort in that.

Please do not let your 'pain' get too bad before you see your consultant - you may need more medication to kick it into touch.
