Sorry to read you are feeling so bad. I lost both my parents within 18 months and it is tough and I was not even that close to them, but it was a loss of two constants in my life.

I worried this morning a little when I read about the possible strikes, I am not travelling until September but I thought about it dragging on and impacting our holiday.

What I decided to do was apply something that I learnt in the work context and that is to only spend my mental energy on things that I can change. So I stopped worrying about there being a strike because I can't change that, but I did think a little bit about what I would do if there is one, and I realised that one way or the other, I will be able to get myself to Orlando. You will too and you will have a well deserved holiday.

You have had a simply appalling time so you are allowed to vent as much as you like. Will give you odds on the holiday will be fabulous, you deserve some good luck, enjoy it when it comes. If you like a drink get yourself a huge margarita when you get there.

You are exactly right about not being able to change things, really trying to get into that mindset, thank you so much.

Of course there are worse off than you and others going through an equally bad time. It doesnt make it any easier does it? I was talking to a colleague about that very thing yesterday. Its natural and human to feel the way you do right now, youve had a horrible time. Allow yourself a little self pity, youve earned it! I lost my parents three months apart. It was 10 years ago but I still feel an emptiness in my life. Fingers crossed you get the holiday you so deserve.

Sending you a hug, sounds like you need it. Hope your holiday goes well - you deserve it. Hope your year gets better.
I will be glad when this year is over. Last year was bad, but this year is worst.
