    Oh no. This is awful. I'm very sorry for your loss, which is also our loss. It's like losing a member of your family because you start to know the person from what they write about.
    I'm very saddened by this news. As @sober4lifesaid, another sweet & sensitive person is now gone because of what this world does to "good people."
    Thanks for letting us know.

    Thank you. Wow. What a beautiful post.
    I live for those little lights...yes, cats and my daughter, plus my collection of books (I'm on a first name basis with the staff at Half Price Books 🙂 ). Walking in the snow is also a treat for me...though I haven't had much time to do it recently.
    I really appreciate this message, WOTL. Thank you again.

    That's fascinating. And quite familiar. I never could put it into words quite like that. I tend to keep things as static as possible to avoid "popping the bubble" myself. I get it.

    Money--or more accurately, the lack of it, is by far the largest source of anxiety for me. I imagine that holds true for any of us who aren't "independently wealthy."
    I'd say reconnecting with your family is definitely worth a shot. I've kinda sorta done that myself. Fortunately, they are a forgiving lot.

    She was such a sweet person.  She was one of the good ones and the world destroyed her.  The whole situation makes me so angry I want to smash this computer into a million pieces!

    hello Skye, I'm glad to see you post here but terribly sorry for the circumstance. It seems as though your friend, Nyla, was going through a lot of turmoil and experiencing some trauma in her relationships across the board...it must have been quite a shock to discover that she was gone...i have experienced this type of loss myself, and please try to remember that her choice in no way was any fault of yours....that guilt will try to creep into the grieving process.
    not knowing how to feel is quite acceptable, let yourself be open to all the feelings that follow such a loss and I'd like to encourage you to continue visiting us here at DF and sharing your thoughts, feelings and experiences...reach out when you need to...someone is always listening here...I wish you peace and understanding.

    So, um, hello. My name is Skye. I was a close friend of Nyla's long ago and she entrusted me with a lot of passwords.
    Nyla, or PraiseBrownies as you knew her is no longer with us. 
    She told me within a note that she had been tired of being constantly abused by that stupid ex fiance of hers and her parents and tired of being bullied by her peers who blamed her for the abuse.
    Forgive me for my formality, to be truthful I don't know how to feel. I lost touch with her a year or two ago and now I'm suddenly attending her funeral (not literally right now). 
    I'll answer any questions you may have.

    And you know what an encouragement that has been for me too, right?
    I guess I'm at 689 days. I had to find a website that would calculate that number for me I was too lazy to count in my head.
    That's roughly 16,000,000 seconds. 🙂

    I've adopted that same philosophy. The universe has made it clear since Ike was president that it is malevolent towards me.
    Evil does seem to have a firm grip on this world. I'm barely hanging on.

    I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It always does and always will.
    I woke up this morning and thought very seriously about just staying in bed. But the pile of work I've got at the office has become absurdly huge and I'm overwhelmed.

    JD4010 got a reaction from BeyondWeary in Job-related depression.   
    I'm in a similar position. I absolutely DREAD going to work. I've been at this place for 31 years, the last 10 of which have been in a managerial role that has become progressively more stressful and difficult. Even my "off" hours are spent ruminating on the immense pile of work that faces me.
    Like you, I'm sticking it out for the health benefits (that have been eroding over time). I am dependent on some meds that I would have to ditch if I "retired". My adult daughter is on my plan until November of this year too.
    There are many days where I feel like setting myself afloat on an iceberg and drifting out to sea.
