Huge, Enormous Triggers?

JennyT

I called my parents for our usual Sunday night conference, and I found out that one of my uncles doused himself in gasoline and set himself on fire on Friday. He's alive but in ICU, and he's still fighting everyone every step of the way.

I just really have no idea what to do or say right now. I was already a bit on edge from the stress of this semester, but now I just have no words.

Oh Jenny, I'm not sure what to say either except that I am truly sorry for your uncle and how this is affecting you and your family. I'm sure this is stunning news and I can understand why you would be at a loss for words. It is hard to understand why someone would do something like that. I wish I had some words of wisdom for you, but you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about your uncle. True, there are no words. I have a friend in ICU and it really set off a deep Depression for me, so watch your moods and if you plunge, catch it fast. My thoughts are with you.

That must be a horrible feeling. I won't try to say that I understand how you feel, because without experiencing a situation it's impossible to understand. I do believe you have the potential of getting through and grow stronger from this experience. Just hold on tight and remember we are all here to support one another.
