We, as a family, have had nine deaths to contend with over a 14 month period. Our house has burst at the seems to include six adults and two dogs. Our finances have been stretched accordingly.
Family have died, close friends have died, work friends have died, neighbours have died and friends of our children have died.
Our children have been in car accidents, their partners have had problems and my bank account was hacked.
If our life was a soap opera you would not believed the plots that we have been through.
All of this plays its toll on your ability to deal with life in everyday situations. Enter stage centre irrational people and my daily toil started to flake at the edges.
