I won't mention any names etc etc, but this just begs to be analyzed.
And we know I rarely do this in this particular sub forum , but I wondered if this seemed odd to just me.
Someone posted a thread, with all kinds of childhood photos, of their kid, now an adult, saying this child of theirs, had less than a year to live.
They did it about.... Three weeks ago.
It got much attention , and even I posted.
In the last few days, the child took a turn for the worse, and as it was occuring, and I assume a hospice type situation, this parent kept posting on this thread.
When the child died, they posted, "my child just died".
Now, I get some of us get attached to our forum pals. I adore many of you here, but if my kid was dying, and just died, I don't think I would be in any frame of mine to give minute to minute updates, on my favorite forum .
After the fact, yes, but as it was occuring.... That just seems loopy to me.
I was at my mom's bedside when she died. I came home and cried for hours and my friends came over.
I wasn't posting on line. I did eventually update my online pals, but not the moment it occurred.
I kind of think it's a bull**** munchausens kind of deal.
I've seen it on livejournal with faked deaths and all of it.
There's even a Iive journal, fake live journal deaths, where they debunk them.
So, just a show of hands. If one of your kids was dying of a long drawn out suffering kind of death, would you post and post, and then post here, the moment they died...
I mean,maybe I'm just cynical, but I don't even do this when one of my cats dies.
I'm too busy holding them and mourning.
