    We have been recommending blogs as the place to go, as they don't take up space in the actual thread and can be utilized more freely away from possibly spoiling things for people.

    Sounds like you two know what you're going to do this weekend (I admit I also forgot that the awards starts this Monday XD). Let me say this before the awards season begins then: May the best writers win :)

    Guys... I... I don't know how much writing I'll be doing for awhile.. I just... I just found out that my grandma is about to pass away. She had cancer, and chemotherapy killed it, but it came back (as I feared it would. I seem to have the ability to predict the future sometimes... I hoped I'd be wrong for once this time...) and the chemo is no longer working.

    I was really close to her. I admired her, she was like a heroine to me. I thought she was strong and would live to be 90... She is strong, but not strong enough, I guess...

    I've never had to go through this before. I've never lost a loved one before. I knew it would happen eventually, but I didn't want the first person to go to be THAT close to me... I need help... I'm going to visit my dad or something after the holidays, maybe.

    I'm going to be crying for awhile... ;_;

    I'm sorry to hear that, Kelleo. My grandmother died when I was 9, so I know what you're going through.

    Wow, that really sucks. You didn't get half as much time with your grandma as I got with mine... I have at least twenty years of memories with mine...

    And that reminds me, my poor little cousin is only six, she got only a few years with my grandma herself... I hope she's going to be okay.

    That sucks, Kelleo; my own grandma is currently very sick, and she can barely walk or talk, her hearing is very minimum and she sometimes doesn't recognise us. I'm sorry for what you're going through. If you need anything, we're always here to support you.

    I'm really sorry to hear that, Kelleo. I've lost three of my four grandparents, but I barely knew them when they died. I can't imagine what you're going through. Spend time with your family and share happy memories, that always helps.

    Death is rough, as it's the one thing you can't just tough out.

    I'm sorry to hear you're going though a rough time, Kelleo. I'm not sure whether this is going to help, but I'm gonna say it anyway, just in case. Give yourself space to be upset. When my uncle finally died - after rather a long bout of bowel cancer - my mum was trying to be everything for everybody. When my uncle was in the hospital, going though treatment, when he died, during the funeral ... never gave herself time to be upset or to grieve. In the long run I think it was harder for her that way.

    And the grief will pass, leaving the happy memories behind

    I'm sorry to hear that, Kelleo. I've never experienced a death of someone close to me, either. My grandpa suffers from Parkinson though and he can hardly walk and sometimes he talks non-sense.

    As LT said our prayers and thoughts were with you :3 stay strong

    Oh, thank you.

    But...she's gone now. Already. She passed an hour ago. And my mom didn't even get a chance to see her! Why?! ;_;
