    As for the weather, we've had a pretty cool summer. It's supposed to get to be 90 this weekend though.
    Mariner, you and I are having pretty much the same weather even though I am in Oregon...I was in Seattle earlier this summer when it did get to 90 - I thought it was great! But I was spending most of my days in air conditioned rooms...

    Yeah, I was in Sunriver last week. It was mid-80s to low-90s all week. The lows were in the low 50s or high 40s. Other than that week when it was 90 earlier this summer, this is the coldest summer I remember in a long time.

    norealityhere, what a scary diagnosis. I hope everything goes perfectly with your 2 surgeries.

    Summer here in Pittsburgh has been abnormally hot, too. We've had more days over 90 degrees than I ever remember having.

    It's been wonderful -- cooler than usual -- in SoCal, too! I know that the Santa Anas are just around the corner, but I'm enjoying this while it lasts.

    I'm scheduled to go ahead with the first surgery the end of the month. The second surgery - other eye - 3 weeks later.
    I'm praying that all goes well.
    My prayers, positive thoughts and vibes are with you!

I'm tired of "you'll get through this". One of the reasons I haven't made an effort to see anyone to talk to anyone on the phone. I know people care and that's why they say those things, but quite honestly, I have heard them so much that they have lost all meaning and now make me just cringe.

    I really dislike that when people tell me that also. I have just been diagnosed with male midlife depression and have been prescribed a med to produce serotonen in my brain. Looking back in hindsight I now see it has been coming for about 2 years or so. Just got to the point on Monday when I woke up and said I can't go to work, I don't want to deal with anything, forget it.

    Fortunately for me my associate Bob at work when I went in Tuesday has been through this and is still on meds once in a while and told me in no uncertain terms to call my doctor, which is where I went yesterday.

    If anyone even thinks of telling me to "tough it out" or "snap out of it" or "think positive" I swear they will get their faces ripped off verbally.

    norealityhere, I will keep you in my thoughts. It is good that you got two opinions and hopefully after the first surgery you will know that it is not risky and will help you. Keep in touch so we know how it goes.

    Glad to hear that you have your own human "spirit guide" to help you along. So many people don't. You are blessed. You need to pick yourself out a song that helps you when you're bummed. Something personal, just for you.

    yes, everybody needs a song and my favorite one right now is, I'll Pray for You, by Jaron and The Long Road to Love. It is great country song and it makes me grin everytime I hear it. just1paul and mrd give it a listen it will fit your moods to a T.
