I went back and read your post and I too am sorry for your troubles.
Like another poster said, you are lucky your family seems to be close but, tough anyway.
MissKitty.....It's good you and everyone here posts and vents....I'm sorry too for your pain.
Gutter, I hope you are hanging tough there.
There are a lot of sad stories here. I suppose we all have them. I know I vented here once or twice and got amazing support when I really needed it.
So, with the bad -there is good right?
I decided not to vent in this thread but, read it and forget my troubles.
I know things could be worse and I thank god for my friends and family.
This thread reminds me we all have ONE day. That's it. No promises for tomorrow. Tell the people you love that you love them.
It took a few tragedies over the past year and a half of my life to TRY to appreciate my family and my friends....before then - I was in another place where I just didn't fully appreciate LIFE.
I just past 40 -another birthday- I was cruising through this life. I didn't even know it. Any pains were self-inflicted.
So, Gabriel mentioned it back there too, we all have today and that is it.
Does everyone have to have bad things happen to feel so intensely? Maybe i was missing something. Maybe I grew up.
Anyway, I think it's great when people can post here about their pains/troubles
It's not always easy to open up but, it's so good for the soul.
