    I want to thank everyone for thoughts and prayers and hugs. It has really helped me a lot. I also want to thank a few for really allowing me to vent. I consider that my counselling primal-howl venting.

    That's what is so nice about FORT. Everyone is so caring and thoughtful and supportive.
    And also available for venting!

    Hang in there Famita.

    And thanks to all who expressed sympathy about my dad's eldery friend that lost his wife. I just feel so sorry for him and thank you for allowing me to post about that. With my parents gone and no one else I know knows them, it was nice to be able to say something here.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I'm trying very hard to keep my spirits up and not let my pain get the best of me, so I'm logged on to say thank you to each and every one of you who offered me comfort here and in pm's. I went to my last PT yesterday and will see my spine surgeon on Monday to discuss cervical epidurals (had them many times before and damn, they hurt ) and trigger point injections. I'm also going to ask him about fibromyalgia, and whether my hardware could be the cause of some of my pain. Anyway, thank you all from the bottom of my little heart - your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated.

    Now, on to more important things. Owlie and Famita, I want you to know that I add my condolences to those above me and I'm so very sorry for your losses. You are tackling some very difficult challenges right now and I pray you'll get the comfort and strength you need for as long as you need it. Please feel free to come in here seeking solace as often as you need.

    MRD, I just saw your post and understand how sometimes you just need to speak of an old family friend's sorrow.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Well as most of you know mr buglover and I went to the neighbor's house for wine last night. I had a really good time, I did get a little tipsy and conversed alot. I thought everything went good until we got home and mr buglover told me I was way too loud. I just burst out crying because I tend to be very hard on myself when it comes to keeping my mouth shut around people I don't know. I was very upset because I knew I was on my best behaviour and he didn't see it. I didn't use any cuss words at all and I have quite the potty mouth in the privacy of my own home. I didn't talk about politics or religion which are no-no's with people you don't know. I didn't think I got loud as the man I was talking to was loud as well. We weren't yelling, we were just excited about what we were talking about. Mr buglover felt I was trying to over power and be like Natalie on BB which is sooooo not what I was doing. I waited my turn to speak and answered questions that were posed to me. It wasn't like I stuck my opinion in all the conversations but he felt I was out of line speaking so much. I don't know how to communicate to him how hurt I was by his comment and it's frustrating me to say the least.

    Ok, I've vented...lol

    Buglover,
    It sounds as if you had a good time. I would focus on that.
    I know that sometimes our spouses comments seem to hurt worse than anyone else's.
    I'm sorry he "stole your joy" from your outing.

    I tend to be loud, especially when I am drinking a bit. But then, I've noticed so do a LOT of people.
    From what it sounds like, you were being fun and like the other people you were talking with.

    And don't be so hard on yourself. I'm sure it was fine. You "played by the rules": no politics, religion or interrupting.

    You have a good time, don't let anyone spoil that for you.

    Lol at National Guard! Mr buglover went to the casino today so I guess when he gets back we will converse about this. I'm still feeling hurt by his comment and I know I have to try to put aside my feelings and hear him out.......even though I really don't want to... heehee
