BTW my car got totaled and my back is fucked and I'm out of work until I get a new car (still waiting on all my insurance $$$ tho). It is depressing being woken up by pain at 4 AM every day on top of already being depressed @_@

Without getting into the minutiae of what’s been ruining my life lately, I’ve been listening to Crash Man several times a day for weeks and it’s actually some of the cheeriest minutes of every day

So for about three years now I've been teaching group music classes for kids (little kids - babies through 5yo. - "mommy and me" style). I just heard that a 2yo boy from one of my classes is on life support and not likely to recover. He apparently had a seizure (the afternoon after my last class with him, no less) and then his organs began shutting down. His family has been with me for awhile and I'm having a hard time processing this. It feels like there's something I should be able to do, but I don't know what. I suppose the reality is there's nothing I actually can do. And the class he's in is such a friendly, loving group - I don't know how I'm supposed to handle this for them, as well.

I hope this doesn’t sound cheesy, but you all have this shared connection with music... maybe that can be your way to share/celebrate/inspire. For what it’s worth (and this is immediate, unthought through reaction), reading your post made me think of “Here Comes the Sun.”

None of this is really a definitive solution, just grasping at straws to find comfort for something where there’s no comfort to be had.

Sorry for double post... tell his family what their relationship has meant to you. I’ve had a lot of conversations with people and families about loss, and just letting them know that this means something to you will bring something positive to them.

I suppose I should update. He passed away sometime on Saturday. We don't have further details right now, but there's still a lot to process. His seizure was the afternoon after our last class, which means that was one of his last experiences. And of course class still goes on this week. My boss and I emailed the other families to let them know ahead of time. We'll both be there for support as needed, but for the sake of the other kids class itself has to be as "normal" as possible. Most of them are too young to really process this sort of thing, at least in a large group setting. It's all so devastating.

oh my god, I'm so sorry to hear that. that is so heart breaking. I agree that letting the family know what their relationship has meant to you is a good idea. My Dad lived a life of thinking everyone in the world outside of our family hated him. his funeral was packed and ran all night. we had so many people who we hadn't even met from his days as a postman who came up to us to tell us how much he meant to them and how great of a person he was. that gave us a lot of comfort and I think letting people know how their life has been influenced by someone else, even after their gone, can do a lot of good and bring some much needed positivity in the darkest times imaginable.

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I wish there was something I could do or say beyond that, but there are no words for this sort of thing.

Been a couple of months now since I finished school and moved to a state in a different region of the country. Still haven't found work or made many local connections, and my social anxiety is ramping up the longer I stay cooped up at home. I reckon that's not an uncommon problem for folks of a nerdier persuasion, so does anyone here have any pointers for getting over it enough to return phone calls and talk to strangers like a normal human being?

My advice would be "don't be afraid of fucking things up". You need to fail in order to learn and improve.

I mean thanks, but the defining quality of irrational anxiety is that you can't rationalize it away
