  •  I'm sorry about everything (none)
    but you have to realize that even if you weren't doing this, chances were not so good that your marriage would have survived.  some say that as many as 75% of bereaved parents divorce.

    I have a friend whose daughter drowned.  I know each case of a parent losing a child is different, but hear me out.  Her husband immediately went to work doing a lot of landscaping around the house, even neglecting his job, and other responsibilities.  He hurt his back, but he kept doing it.  My friend complained to me and to other people about this, and we all told her the same thing:  that it was his way of feeling like he could control something, and he had to work it out this way.

    I believe you are doing the same thing.  You are trying to make Casey's death mean something, and in the process you woke up a country.

    Don't let people tell you what you should and shouldn't do.  You know for yourself what can help  to "fix" you.
