I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
After the second fever, she went deaf and wouldn’t talk for years and when she did start talking, no one understood her. Doris Jean’s parents were frightened with the news of Doris Jean being deaf.

Camus says, “She asked me if I loved her. I said that sort of question had no meaning” (44). First Meursault barely blinks when his mom dies and now he won’t say I love you to his girlfriend. This also demonstrates the extent of the hopefulness of Marie versus the hopelessness of Meursault. Whereas even after this Marie continues to try to make her and Meursault work, Meursault is shown to be lost, cold, and angry.
This has affected her actions and way of living her life and even pursuing teenage dreams. Since Susie didn 't arrive for dinner Abigail still kept her hope up that nothing unusual had happened and that her daughter was in safe hands. Successively she started becoming worried and made phone calls to neighbors …”as my mother made phone calls..” (p 55) which shows us that she is upset. The hope of Susie one day arriving back home started fading away as the days went past and additional evidence came through the police indicating Susie being dead. Going through these tough times Abigail couldn’t show affection to anyone as she had done earlier and therefore the relationship between her spouse, Jack, weakened up.
Following the first instance, I was only out of my home for a week. The other one required a short stint as a foster child and a longer placement in a group home. Even though my mother’s previous employment entailed being responsible for the safety of abused children, she neglected to protect me. Countless professionals told her that my refusing to return to that environment was the healthiest response to the abuse, she continued to rely on the advice of a psychologist that I never met. One of the few skills my mother acknowledges my expertise and proficiency in is my ability to act.

Although I should have recognised, that I hadn’t the right to; who I am, after all; merely a woman, a wife, a nobody, an inferior creature who is not supposed to pronounce that she doesn’t like a thing. I was crying, because I had wanted to hold a little, modest party for my daughter for years. It hurt me that
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
.When I gazed into the eyes of my grandmother and my hero, I had no idea that those familiar brown eyes no longer knew who I was. I knew she was stumbling in life and that for the first time in over 10 years, she was separated from my grandfather and placed into an assisted living community.
