Grief and Anger

July has been a rather rough month so far. I lost my mother on the 2. Although expected, it still hurts. And there is a bit of guilt because it is also relief. I know my mother is no longer in pain and the quality of life she had the last few months wasn't good. By turns I am sad, numb, angry and relieved.
Then this morning my little inner voice said, "Call and check your bank balance." I did. To my shock I was vastly overdrawn. I immediately went on line to determine where I had goofed. I hadn't. Some a-hole in another state had hacked my checking account. Needless to say the bank is on it. I filed a police report that may or may not get results. My inner redneck wants a piece of whom ever did it. I think staked naked over an anthill for a few hours might make restitution. After all, it took me nearly all morning talking to the bank, the police, and my credit card holders. Not to mention the headache I got in the process and the fact that I can't access my own meager money for 5-10 days at least. Why do people have to do this? What is wrong with making an honest living?
