How does your year 2021 rank compared to previous years so far?Watch
2020 was another awful year. My daughter was hospitalised with meningitis, and then... ya know... the whole Covid situation. Everything felt weird all year.
This year has been much better. Despite the ever present threat of Covid, things are much calmer in general. We've settled into a routine.
2012 was the best year though.
family deaths, lots of illness - even outside of covid
This is the first time in 10 years me and my husband have been cat-less. They were our lives and while we know one day we will be ready to adopt again, we need time to grieve first. I lost my stepdad suddenly in 2019 to a cardiac arrest as well, almost in similar circumstances to my cat tbh so it brought a lot back and then last month my dad broke his hip and suffered delrium bad in hospital due to his end stage renal failure, painkillers and injuries. That was a not a fun experience but thankfully, he has came around. I was also in a car crash 2 months ago. Thankfully we were all fine and the car was fixed but my god what a fright. Tbh, I count losing my stepdad in Dec 2019, 2020 and this year all as one year. Its just been a nightmare almost every day since he died and its been one thing after another.
My mental health even before losing my cats was absolute hell. Again, you may know my MH story from here but last year was the worst MH year of my life and just when I was starting to climb again, this year hit and dissociation, flashbacks and agoraphobia have been bad this year. The worst its ever been, even worse than 2020.
I sound so pessimistic but compared to others, my life and year has been better than most. Even on the worst days, I am still grateful for life. I just can't deny that the last year or so has knocked me for six in a million ways but again, each day has its blessings
2018 was bad as we lost a lot of family, 2020 we had holidays cancelled, and 2021 same again, but health issues in the family to add on.
2017 was a good year, promotion, new car, holiday
2014 I gave up smoking after years of the horrid habit since smoking from 16 years old, so that was a triumph year.
out of the worst years it would rank like this worst first:
Best years would rank best like this:
Still nothing on 2018-19 (which i consider my golden years so far)
