    I don't particular care much for Jonathan due to how he treated me when my own grandfather died. He is the person that said to me last spring how maybe my supervisor should find someone who doesn't have aspergers to replace me. I have every right to work where I want to work! So even though Jonathan is a truly ignorant person, still his dad is dying of the same illness my grandfather had. No matter how nice I can be to someone who is mean to me, they never appreciate my kindness. I'm not a Federal Government employee like Jonathan is, but I'm a contractor.

    You care about your co-worker because you are a kind person. Most of us do care about others and feel sympathy for them when they go through bad times --- it's part of being a caring person.

    Sending gentle hugs your way,
    Donna

    I know I probably shouldn't feel sad or be in tears over someone else's parent who is really sick, but this is different. One of my co workers (He is an actual Dept of Justice employee) well his dad is 90 and is in the hospital. He had to drive 4 hours to Roanoke Virginia. His dad's condition isn't good. His dad has pneumonia and heart issues. Exactly what my grandpa had. I don't know if his dad is responsive or has tubes everywhere. Jonathan is my co worker. His dad has same name as him. His dad is exactly one year older than grandpa. Jonathan left to go to Roanoke Fri night.

    Mom dad, Timmy (our West Highland Terrier) and I are coming up to see my 91 year old grandma this weekend. She has lived alone since my grandpa's death almost 3 years ago. My other grandma died nearly 2 years ago at the age of 94. We are leaving here Sat morning and coming back home Mon morning, so I'm taking Mon off. I sent my leave request to Jonathan and got his out of office reply. I thought at first it was strange since Jonathan was on a cruise from Feb 4-14. I thought maybe this is the Fed Gov saying to take Leave without pay for their employees. No Fed Govt employee has to do that for now, but they may have to do it in the future. Then Jonathan left me a message saying about his dad's health. Is it normal to feel sadness over someone else's sick and elderly loved one?

    From what I also understand about aspergers people is that they don't feel anything. Often at funerals aspergers people don't show any tears or sadness. To me seeing someone in a casket no matter how old they are is so sad. When I saw my grandpa in the casket I was bawling like a baby. WHY is it so hard for people with aspergers to be sad? It's simple really, right? Dead loved one in casket, it's sad! They aren't around to hug you or kiss you or talk to you.
