Life can be screwed up sometimes

My cleaning partner T found out today that she can't come back to work. Her pancreatitis is chronic, there will be no more remissions, and she's not allowed to do physical labour. Which is sad for me, since we worked so well together, but really sad for her. She's a single mom who had to leave home when she was 14 because her mother was a single mom as well as an alcoholic, and couldn't afford to keep her and her sister. Another of her sisters died of leukemia when she was 11-ish. Her niece has leukemia right now and isn't doing very well. T had her gall bladder removed a few years ago, which caused the pancreatitis. She was already not making enough money to live here in Lloyd due to the amazingly high cost of living, so I'm sure being on medical leave will only make that worse. Oh, and her ex-husband is a weird stalker. I feel really bad for her. My life is looking pretty cushy right now.
