Comforting people is one the hardest things to do..

Before I get on a more serious note, I wanted to share night. I got home from work to find my electric massager on the front porch. So exciting! It works great even though I electrocuted the hell out of myself the first time since I didn't read the instructions! I then had a 2 hour skate practice that went okay. I felt strong and my wheels were gripping pretty good the first hour of practice, but by the second hour my legs were starting to feel like jello and I was losing grip. I think my body was still recovering from the 1 hour outdoor skate I did by myself the day before. All in all I had a decent practice though.
I had my boyfriend's step brother with me and had to drop him off after practice. Well needless to say it had been raining earlier and the driveway was muddy. I got stuck! It was already 11:30pm and it was the last thing I needed. I didn't get home till midnight and then I didn't get in bed till 1am. 6:30am came quick this morning!
Now on a more serious note. My boyfriend's grandma is dying and is said to pass away any second. My boyfriend has a lot of siblings and has always taken on the role of the "strong one". He'll mention something about his grandma here and there and I just never know what to say. It is so hard to comfort people when it comes to death. Death in general is a really depressing subject matter to me. One of my best friends in college passed away at a party. Me and my other best friend left the party because we were angry that my other friend has been popping pills again. Later that night he passed away. Ever since then the subject of "death" is something hard for me to talk about. My boyfriend didn't get home from the hospital till 1am and didn't get out of bed till late this morning. It's so hard to say anything.
