It’s been a long rough week

January 19th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Family Life

It’s been a long rough week.

It’s only Thursday but I’ve woken up every day this week thinking, “is it Saturday yet?”

Two teenagers have committed sucide recently.  One was 14 and the other was 16.  I only have tenuous connections to them if you could even call it a connection at all, I didn’t personally know either child, but it’s hitting me hard.

They were babies.  Children.   I can’t imagine the grief their parents must feel.

I’ve not been running, so I don’t have that as a stress relieving outlet.

I am starving and I am craving junk food.  Cupcakes from Pinkitzel.  Chicken Nachos from LaLuna.  Comfort food.

It needs to be the weekend soon.

    Oh that’s awful! :( *hugs to you* I hope you find something comforting soon.

    That is horrible. (And I couldn’t agree more with your comfort food choices.)

    That’s terrible, I’m sorry, you’re right they are babies. I have two teens and I’m now reading every where that I should be talking to them about whether they’ve ever thought about killing themselves. I haven’t done that yet – I guess I need too. Is it bad that I REALLY don’t want to? Can’t we just talk about sex or something? Sigh.

    This was horrible. One of them was in my oldest boychilds class. Haunting, sickening and wrong. One of the hardest things I have ever gone through as a parent. blah.
