You really are not having a good time of things at the moment Cyrilla are you?
Especially as you are already going to a funeral today. Year 10, that's 14/15. Death is always sad when it is somebody you know. (My paternal grandmother died a few weeks ago) and in somebody so young when you would like to think they had the rest of their life to lead it is very tragic.
As far as friends having cancer, it isn't always terminal anymore and I have been inspired and amazed by the courage of the friends and relatives I have known who have suffered including those who have died. It still does not make it pleasant, but I'm trying to look at things in a more positive light.
My whinge: I have the most appalling completely intractable back-pain. It affected my sleep and is nagging all the time. I'm doing my best to just keep plodding on, but it is extremely difficult to try to keep a smile on my face or my concentration levels up.
However compared with some of the rest of you...
