I've never dealt with death well and the thought of it alone makes me want to break down and yet my grandfather died yesterday and even though he's been sick for a while, I'm honestly not all that upset. If anything, I feel worse for his wife but I haven't even felt a tear. I've never been extremely close with him but have lived near him and seen him on holidays and a few other occassions for the past 13 years. Now I've just recieved news that my great-great aunt who lives 3,000 miles away who I've only seen a handful of times in the past 13 years has a good chance of leaving us today and I'm on the verge of a breakdown. How can I accept the death I'm seeing first hand so easily and yet another that I don't have a part of breaks my heart so terribly? Is this a strage grieving process or is something mentally wrong with me?
