Last week was "interesting".
I found out (from deviantART via another friend of hers who found out from a mutual friend of theirs on Facebook, which is how I'd suspected for a long time I would find something like this out) that an online friend that I have been talking to almost daily for the last couple of decades had died apparently on Christmas Eve. We had been chatting the week or so before, and she had told me at some point not long before then that she suspected she was cancer-riddled and that her organs were starting to fail and she probably didn't have long left (she suspected cancer quite a while before then but was so terrified of hospitals she chose to just die from it rather than seek treatment, and the myriad of health issues she'd had throughout her entire life probably played a part in that decision too). I don't know what the actual cause of death was.
That took some processing.
