BEIJING (AP) — Images of bodies and wreckage floating in Indonesian waters gave relatives of those lost aboard AirAsia Flight 8501 anguish and grief, but they also provided the answers that other families have sought in vain for nearly 10 months. Families of those on the AirAsia flight "are luckier than us, because they know what happened soon afterward," said Song Chunjie, whose sister was on the plane on her way back from a photography holiday. Since Flight 370 disappeared, relatives of the missing have helped each other bear the turmoil of not knowing. Li said that when he went to Tiananmen Square with two other relatives, they were held at a security check for 40 minutes after security officers found a T-shirt with the phrase "Pray for MH370" in his bag. Relatives of victims continue to meet each other in social settings, or in part of a sports center that has been set up to enable them to send questions to Malaysia Airlines and the Chinese and Malaysian governments. Dr. George Hu, a clinical psychologist at Beijing United Family Hospital and Clinics, said the relatives of the MH370 passengers are experiencing a psychological phenomenon that parents of children who are kidnapped also go through. Associated Press researcher Yu Bing and news assistant Zhao Liang in Beijing, and writer Eileen Ng in Surabaya, Indonesia, contributed to this report.

The bottom — and there’s always a bottom — for Becky Irvine was in an Amarillo motel room in 2003. She checked in alone, naturally, with no intention of leaving.
It was about four years into her battle with depression. It began with the divorce and escalated quickly. She lost her job as a registered nurse, lost her three children and lost her will to live.
Irvine was living what seemed to be a normal life until around age 35. Then came the divorce, and in her words, “I just fell apart.”
