Bobbi Kristina’s situation is getting worse by the second19
When Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub this week, there was hope that she would make a full recovery. But the hope of a recovery is growing more and more bleak, according to ET Online.
Sources within the family are saying that doctors are telling Bobbi Kristina’s loved ones to prepare for the worst as she lies right now in a medically-induced coma. They claim that the longer that Bobbi is in a coma, the lower are the odds that she will be able to regain consciousness.
The family is asking for privacy right now as they deal with this difficult situation, but that is unlikely.
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby said in a statement.
Police searched the house for drugs after Bobbi’s body was found, but they reportedly found nothing. The incident occurs almost three years to the date when Bobbi’s mother Whitney accidentally drowned in a bathtub.
Due to Bobbi’s condition, the family has reportedly begun discussing funeral arrangements, which would be tragic due to the fact that Bobbi is only 21 years old.
Bobbi was openly grieving the loss of her mother, which is difficult for anyone at such an early age. Helpguide.org gives some tips on how to deal with grief in ways that are healthy and will allow you to get better, not worse, from your situation. They also discuss a few myths about grieving that might be important for the African American community.
MYTH: The pain will go away faster if you ignore it.
Fact: Trying to ignore your pain or keep it from surfacing will only make it worse in the long run. For real healing it is necessary to face your grief and actively deal with it.
MYTH: It’s important to be “be strong” in the face of loss.
Fact: Feeling sad, frightened, or lonely is a normal reaction to loss. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. You don’t need to “protect” your family or friends by putting on a brave front. Showing your true feelings can help them and you.
MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss.
Fact: Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one. Those who don’t cry may feel the pain just as deeply as others. They may simply have other ways of showing it.
MYTH: Grief should last about a year.
Fact: There is no right or wrong time frame for grieving. How long it takes can differ from person to person.
