Mom texted me with the news while I was at work. Of course, my phone was off, so I didn't get the message. I did, however, get a call from her with the news before I could even check my messages. To be honest, I couldn't help but laugh. Does this make me inhuman? I don't really like how I've been reacting since my aunt and cousin were diagnosed, but to be honest, isn't it just second nature now? It's sad to think that way, since this is one of the worst things to consider an everyday occurrence. At the rate this is going, though, it almost looks like it.
Let's put it in timeline perspective:
Me: June 2006 (outlier)
Mom: December 2009
Janina: January 2010
Aunt Rea: February 2010
Melissa: February 2010
Aunt Gracie: November 2010
This is absurd. Do you not agree? I hate feeling like this is just going to keep happening, but I can't help it. How else am I supposed to think otherwise?
I'm always the optimist in any situation that occurs. I do my best to think about the positives of each situation. The only one I can think of in this one is: No one is dying or is going to die.
Please tell me I'm not abnormal in my thinking.
Many blessings of love, happiness, and -- most importantly -- good health.
