Ok, listen up because this is kind of important. My grandmother is currently in the hospital because she suffered a heart attack.
She is being treated and won't be back until Monday (unless there's some change in her current state).
This is already bad enough because she's roomed with five more elderly folk who've been abandoned there which is not only downright cruel but extremely depressing for everyone there, staff and my gran alike.
Now, this is leaving my family and I in a terrible state. My mom is overworked and suffering due to not having her mom comfortably at home like usual; my older sister (whom like I, was raised by my grandma) is a nervous wreck; my younger siblings are acting up and making things worse and I'm trying my best to stay on solid ground even though everything feels like tar at the moment.
What I want you all to understand is that I am not in any state to bare with things that may end up overwhelming me.
I have at least two multi-chapter fics to finish for two people I quite admire and having people stressing to me their undying need for continuations or fics based on art pieces is only making me more and more depressed.
I miss my grandmother and I am terrified and shaky.
I am trying to be strong but it's proving to be very difficult because everyone is breaking apart and hurt.
All I ask is some patience; some peace and some quiet. Because if I am not allowed these to cope...Then I can guarantee you all that I won't be so nice when I reply to anything that may make me snap into fury.
