Just so tired of never ending battles.
Oh, Marcus. If I had all of that on my plate I do not think I would even be able to write it down.
I will suggest that you handle the billing problem via certified mail. That worked for me.
Re Christmas? Get that ticket to Fl or the nearest hotel with massages
When all else fails tell "the everlasting" (nickname my grandfather had for his children) sick with a bad contagious cold. You can get one now and then relaspe.
Yeah, this sounds crappy. And the Holidays doesn't make this better....but I agree with Judith. Make it a you and wife day.
I'm guessing you prefer to be with your whole family, but it does feel nice to stay away sometimes. If they were supportive, then this would be different.
Marcus, I wish there were something I could say that would be helpful but I will not be a Pollyanna. You feel too bad for that.
There is no way to complete this journey without being drastically changed. You will not be the same person. Your life is not what you expected or looked forward to. That is the truth however that does not mean that you will have lost yourself. You might not recognize yourself but it will be you and you might be comfortable with yourself.
You are in a rough spot for sure ...it is a spot!
You are a remarkable and very caring man, Markus. Keep
caring. About your wife. About yourself. About life. Other care-givers have
gone through what you are going through. And they’ve come out of it. As better
human beings. I briefly thought I’d become a recluse. But turns out, I learned
to care more than ever. Learned to truly savor life. Doing what dear Jeanne
would have wanted me to do. Live to the fullest. In doing so, I am honoring
Jeanne. I took good care of her. And now she’s taking good care of me. From her
perch in the spiritual world. She’s happy. I’m happy. Go for it, Markus. Care.
Care. Care. Exude good vibes. For your wife’s sake. For your sake. Don’t be a pessimist. Be an optimist. Believe
that your Cleveland Indians will go all the way next season. --Jim
Did anyone see that post from the moderator asking us if we wanted to share our perspective about how this platform helped us form friendships???
I have formed some valuable and deep friendships with posters here and will participate in the questions.
"We usually get what we look for / You get out of something to the degree you put in"...my father
Underdog, I encourage you to start something amusing, interesting, humorous however if you look up the definition of musing you will find words like meditate, brood, comtemplate. Give us a list of
Enablers? I am certain you have me as one of the three. I guess if sticking up for someone here when I think they have been correct then please keep me as one of the enablers.
Now point of fact I have posted about a lot of subjects on musings and will do so again today. I have also frequently tried to divert a thread that I though was going south. Maybe the topic will be acceptable both as muse and at least slightly entertaining.
I hope you will read and give us your ideas.
We can make this forum what ever we wish so lets go for it.
