I have a friend who is going through what is called a rough patch. Karma smackdown number one, after serious financial setbacks she and her family are losing their family home of multiple generations. They did everything humanly possible to save it, but the juggernaut of "the bank" would not be deterred. A week before they were expected to pack their duds and decamp...her father died. Her mother passed previously. Understandably this dear lady is reeling. I have heard that more than one or two "life events" in a year should cause one to pay attention to one's mental and emotional equilibrium. She's doing her best to stay positive, but it's one of those challenging times that come to most of us in some form in a lifetime, that just have to be endured.
