What Got You Through Those Days?
This weeks comment diversion comes from sadness, Sara_Tonin00’s suggestion, and Six Feet Under.
Mswas: My father died suddenly a month before this series ended. The finale stayed in my queue for probably six months or so before I could bring myself to watch it. Instead, I found Mythbusters to be just about the only thing I could watch. Explosions make Mswas happy? Confirmed.
Drake: My last big personal trauma I binged on “Phineas and Ferb”.
hippyherb: When my mother died, I could only watch documentaries about the history of the U.K. Nice way to pass the initial stages of grief.
It’s not that I’ve never grieved, but I don’t have something that I watched to get me through a loss; however, while my father was dying, I watched the A&E Pride and Prejudice because it was his favourite book. During one of his lucid moments, I told him that I was watching it and hoped “those two crazy kids would work things out,” and he laughed. That laugh now makes me cry, like right now for example. [deep breath] We read it aloud to him in the hospital as well. My dad used to recommend Pride and Prejudice to his co-workers who needed to improve their writing.
What did you watch, read, or listen to during those days when you had to find a way to get through? Can you revisit those things or are they now too entangled with your loss?
