Is it the house?

junemnNovember 5, 2005

Ever since my grandson took his life in our house it just seems like things are going wrong. We had a problem with the water, our car is acting funny and now our dog is sick. This is an old house that has seen a lot and it just feels like it's tired. We fix everything that happens to it but some how it doesn't have the same feeling. I suppose it sounds a little strange, I know it's just a house but somehow it feels like the old knotted tree outside my window. Can't figure out what's wrong with the dog either, he has a vet appointment Monday.

I'm sorry you are having problems. I think that after we experience such a tremendous loss, minor things that happen in our lives sometimes seem magnified because we are already in a weakened emotional state. Realistically though, most things truly are not worth worrying about when we look at the big picture....when we compare them to what we have already gone through. I do know what you are talking about though. At times when I succumb to being bothered by the "minor" things, I remind myself of how much worse things could be and it always makes feel better.
I would guess that if these things would have gone on before your grandson left, they would have rolled off your back.
Take care and I hope that you will feel better soon. I hope your dog is okay.

You are so right Lu. These things are just everyday things and no big deal. Any other time we wouldn't even think about them. I always tell my kids not to sweat the small stuff, I guess I should take my own advice. The dog has Lyme Disease but has medication for it and will be just fine. Thanks for setting me on track.
