Today I received some sad news regarding a member of my family. It is their story to tell, not mine, so I will say no more other than the sorrow I feel for my family member.
I also received the news that my dear beloved Granddad can no longer live independently and will soon be moving to a ‘Home’ I again feel sadness over this.
It comes on the day I discovered that the last book he translated is in the Library where I work, which filled me with pride.
Today’s news mark more bad fortune to fall on that side of my family. I find it hard to accept the audacity that bad fortune has to hurt my friends and family.
Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold.
I decided today that I would use my last remaining hours of annual leave to go to the Doctor and speak about my anxiety. I only feel that today has been a sign that I have made the right decision.
