There is no timeframe for anger Tom. Please don’t beat yourself up about it.

Tom

I totally understand your feelings after loosing your Mom and Dad.

Honestly..............I don't know what to say, I'm at a loss for words, just stay away from Drug's and Alcohol,  try to keep your chin up and hope things change because  " A man needs to know his limitations " 

Talk to others that are in the same boat and maybe that might help.

It sucks when you want to vent or bounce ideas off of them, that's what helps you keep your sanity, you realize there gone, you can't hear there opinions, wisdom, laugh or see there smile's and joy in there eye's.

Lost My sister in 1997  due to smoking that led to cancer

Lost my dad in 2000 due to two hart attacks and old age 90

Lost my mom in 2001 do to complications from diabetes

That's it I don't have any cousins, aunts, uncles nobody, I have my oldest daughter 32, she lives 550 miles away and see her once a month, my other daughter is 28 and thinks of herself and her family and I understand that then there is my son 16 , he's to young to understand what has happened.  He is the one I always think that I have let down.

My best friend had a stroke Christmas eve, he has a big family and always tells me I'm so lucky that I don't have any family ?????  

To be honest I would love to have family but that's not possible, I have one out of three kids that understands and that's keep me sane but for how long ??????????????????????????????

Tom.....I hope things get better for you, message me if you ever want to chat, I found that talking helps even if it's for a short period, that's better than nothing.   :wink:

Hey Ed

 

I try to focus on what is happening now, rather than what will or might happen in the future.  I'm not that good at it, mind you, but I have realized that it's really easy to imagine a bleak future and forgot that things are OK now.  That has been part of my social problem over the past year or two.  I have been making a concerted effort to focus on the moment (how good things are right now, not how bad things might be in 10 minutes).

 

People are bad at that; we've evolved to anticipate bad things and figure out how to deal with them, which is not always good.

Yes that's is true but I like to be prepared for all kinds of situations, sometimes I wish the stroke would have taken my memory but it took my stamina and balance instead :grrrrr: either way I'm  :@#*%:

On a lighter note did you look up Glenn Hughes yes, when we were talking that's what pops in my mind

  :bye:

I have a note to look him up, have not had a chance yet.  Life gets hectic, and my stamina is pretty low.

Wow, Ed. That's sad.

I felt out of me and my two brothers I was the ideal candidate for This.

One brother is single.  The other has two kids 1500km from him and they live over east.

I'm here with Wayne,  my kids and parents.  Plus some amazing friends. 

I truly feel blessed with my support team.
