We gots sad newz

We let Meowmy tawk:


One of my good friends and co-workers has identical twin sons, Joe and Jim. They're 20 years old. Jim died this weekend.
He had Chron's disease. He got sick yesterday, vomited, and asphyixiated on his own vomit.

Sonya, his mom and my friend, is beside herself.

It is especially hard for me because I taught both boys and because my identical twin died in 1990.

This is a hard day for us all.

I just found out about it when I got to school this morning.

He choked on his own vomit and blood.

I have called his twin brother to talk. Since I am an identical twin and went through my twin's death, I thought I might be able to help Joe.

Our meowy sad, so we gotta go cumfurrt her.

Thank you all!

Sonya is terribly upset. She says she does not want to go on living.
Her marriage, which was shaky, is ending.
She is virtually alone. We (her friends) try to tell her that coming back to school will be the best thing for her, but she refuses.

So very sad. My thoughts are with you and with her.

Glad you're looking after Meowmy, kits -- she needs you more than ever right now.

Condolences on the loss of Jim. My Mom was an identical twin, and when she died in 2002 it was very hard on us all, but especially her twin sister. Aunt Bethany said my Mom had done everything first, from being born, to going to college to having kids. And now she got to be the first to go to heaven.

Continue to be there for Sonya, but if she continues to be devastated, she may need professional help. Perhaps a doctor or minister could talk to her. As a psychiatric nurse, I understand that sometimes depression can be overwhelming, and may even lead to suicidal thoughts. Don't be afraid to talk to her about it.

I suppose it would be hard to "judge" if her sadness is too much for such a situation. I know if I lost a child I would have great difficulty going on without them. But if you can just continue to be there for her...a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen...maybe you will be able to intervene if necessary.

Condolences on the loss of your twin, too. I know too well how very close twins are, and how hard it must be to lose your sister too soon.
