    fuck me running

    My little cousin died in a car crash last August...........August 30th, to be precise. I got the call at an ungodly time August 31st. He was 28.

    I love my aunt so much, so dearly - every post on FB is just heartbreaking, though. I don't know wtf to say to her. I don't know how to help, how to be, what to be. I want to fly down and spend time with her, but I just envision an uncomfortable silence.

    fucking busting my cold dead heart apart :sad:

    WTF do you do? Or is there even anything you can do?

    Tell her just what you said. That you love her dearly, you are not sure what to say to her and that you'd like to help her in some way.

    I regretted this thread the moment I hit "post".

    *sigh*

    I actually considered changing the title and erasing it all - but y'all can fuck y'all's selves.

    It's eating me up inside. Makes me "feel" and shit. I hate "feeling".

    This. Let her know and acknowledge her loss. There is nothing that will help her of take the hurt away.
