Off kilter.

I've had some truly insane people lately. I worked a lot of overtime this week, which gave me ample opportunity to talk to some real charmers. I'm going to try to write them up eventually, but my mind is basically trying to power itself off constantly. My grandmother was diagnosed with a stage four malignant tumor - we had no idea she even had a tumor at all, neither did she. I haven't lost anyone close to me except my grandfather twenty years ago, and the prospect of it has knocked the wind out of me. It's also triggered a stress-fest about a number of other things, I think because it's easier to worry about money or whatever than it is to worry about death.

Anyway, I again might be kind of quiet while I process this. Or I might suddenly feel like writing and end up with an entry every day for the next month. Who knows!

It's not necessarily easier to worry about stuff like money than death, it's just something you feel like you have more control over. I have never lost someone I was close to.
I do offer the advice of making sure your family enjoys every moment you can with your grandmother. The happier someone can be in the face of such odds the better chance they have to last longer.
