Death of Dad and Cousin


In the past 8 weeks I've endured the loss of my job followed by the death of my father and a cousin. My Dad was 74 and even though it was not totally unexpected it was a very difficult time. While visiting my mother two weeks after the funeral we received word that my cousin's (who I'm very close to) 31 year old son died suddenly from an allergic reaction. Barely 2 weeks had passed and my mother, sister, and I were then in the role of comforting the very people who had traveled so far to comfort us when my Dad died. Although I've made a few contacts and interviewed twice for a new job, my heart just isn't in and we are close to running out of funds. I don't know how to work through this and find my way.
