Q. WHO'D LIKE TO JOIN TEAM ORACLE?
When I answer questions of a personal nature, Coldplay.com readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following heart-breaking question, in NO MORE than 200 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before Thursday 28th July.

I have suffered so much heartache in such little time and am really struggling to find any good of anything right now.
Last august my mother died it was a shock even though we knew she was ill. I was slowly coming to terms with her loss, but still not healed, we was very close and she was my best friend as well as my mother.
On my birthday, myself and my brother were going out, but on that morning my brother phoned me complaining of chest pain and arm pain and one hour later he suffered a massive heart attack and died. He was only 38 and we were also very close. I always spoke with him about losing our mum and he always knew what to say to ease my pain.
I just don't know what to do anymore. I feel like everybody I love is being taken away from me. I have lost interest in everything and I feel like I will never get over these massive losses. I miss them so much my life will never be the same without them. I try to remember all the good times, but then am consumed by hurt and anger that there will be no more memories of them. I just don't know what to do. Diane.


Look forward to seeing your replies.
