Hello All,

Boy, did I let the cat out of the bag or what??

Yes, GG, I'm around for a bit. What's on your mind?

LL~ I LOVE the idea of each of us wrting something for Mich and GG to take with them. That way they know we won't ever forget them while they aren't here with us.

GG~ What's the approximate date you'll be back from your surgery? I know you'll be in about five days.

Mich, are you still here?

Mich are you here? I have been off in la'la on Lolli's thread. Someday we all will get to the bottom of the mess/hurt/pain in our lives. One day at a time.

Say I just picked up a book called *The Road less traveled*....have you read that one? Looks real good...

Oh, and Mich, about the friend of mine...just have to share this...she never got help, no help whatsoever. And there is alot more to the story then even I could tell in a paragraph....

but basically what it all boiled down to in the end was that her new husband wasn't so sure about spending the money on her to get treatment (they didnt have insurance). The days leading up to her death there were apparently discussions (heard from her sister) about spending money on that, or kid ya not, their upcoming 4th of July party. And the sad thing, money wasn't even a issue for them.

The SOB said after he found her at 2am that he had planned on bringing her in that morning... I know that she would still be here today had she gotten help...

Hi Mich,

I had some time and wanted to say hello and that I love you. Any word from Jim or your h?

GG~ They may let you bring the laptop, but since you are going alone, I don't recommend taking it. I wouldn't want anyone to steal it while you're in surgery.

I will put those dates in my calendar.

LL~ I just lost my temper with someone who was whining for more attention on another post. Will you hide me when Ma Strong & Mama Cinnamon come looking for me? I don't particularly feel up to a tongue lashing today.

Love,
Cyn

LL~ There's a post where some twentysomething whined about not getting enough support. Now she thinks it's okay that she did it, got the attention she wanted, and wants us all to move on like it never happened.

Her reasoning? She was PMSing and the breakup is stressing her out so she vented here and doesn't owe anyone an apology. She wrote it happened four days ago, let's move on.

Revelation's comments got me to thinking about what she had written on her own post and the snide comment she made there when she lashed out. I know this site isn't for everyone, but since we are ALL dealing with shit, I don't think her comments were fair or founded. I am pissed!!!

Here we are all just trying to help each other with their recovery and she is whining like we OWE her something. I'm pissed!!!

Okay, I feel a little better. I'm sorry to have burdened you, but when I think of all the wonderful support EVERYONE has given me I can't understand her attitude.

Cyndra- you can come out now from under the afghan!! And Ma Strong & MamaC are beautiful/sensible people and to be honest, it would be interesting to hear what either one of them would also have to say about the topic.

As far as I can tell you didn't do anything wrong... I think the posting touched a nerve with a few others as well...there is something posted around here by the Site Coordinater on what to if you get upset when reading another's post...Hey, I'm going to go and find it as I want that one in my file of favorites too!! And Cyndra- I've "exploded" before on a thread or two and trust me what you said is nothing. If I wasn't so embarrassed about it today, I would lead you to where you could read it.

Also I think that between Lolli, Rev, and you, it pretty much summed up what AAC is truly about.

Hi Smartone,

How are you? Thanks for dropping in.

LL~ I just felt a little silly after I posted. I remember what it like to have everything wreak havoc with your emotions.

Thanks for saying what you did. You did make me feel better.

How's your day going? Haven't heard from the twins lately. I'm about to go home for the day. I'll check in when I get there.

Love,
Cyndra

I love you all...

SISTERS A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced
tea and visiting with her Mother. As they talked about life, about
marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of
adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully
and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter. "Don't forget your
Sisters," she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her
glass. "They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much
you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you
may have, you are still going to need Sisters. Remember to go places
with them now and then; do things with them. "Remember that 'Sisters'
means ALL the women... your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your
other women relatives too. "You'll need other women. Women always do."
'What a funny piece of advice!' the young woman thought. 'Haven't I just
gotten married? Haven't I just joined the couple-world? I'm now a
married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup! Surely my husband and the
family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!'
But she listened to her Mother. She kept contact with her Sisters and
made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after
another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what
she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their
mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life. After
more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned:
THIS SAYS IT ALL: Time passes. Life happens. Distance separates.
Children grow up. Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes. Hearts
break. Parents die. Colleagues forget favors. Careers end.
BUT..... Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many
miles are between you. A girl friend is never farther away than
needing her can reach. When you have to walk that lonesome valley
and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will
be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for
you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the
valley's end. Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk
beside you. Or come in and carry you out. Girlfriends, daughters,
granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers,
Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless
our life! The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither
w o uld I. When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no
idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we
know how much we would need each other. Every day, we need each other
still. Pass this on to all the women who help make your life
meaningful. I just did.

(((Mich))) that was wonderful..thank you for sharing. ya know what the strangest thing for me in all of this... I really do feel a bond to you all as if you really, really are my sisters. AND that I really, really, really finally am a big sister!! And I am enjoying for some sick reason picking on the younger sis's : )

I love you Mich so much...I just came across something talking about love...I'll have to find it because it reminded me of what has transpired in here between us all.

I started to write something to you...wish that I could express myself in the beautiful way you and GG can in poetry. But right now my goal is to learn to cut down my posts!!

Thank you for sharing that!!! It does describe us here doesn't it? Remember it when you go. Print it and take it with you. May you drag it out every day and read it so much that when you come home it's been taped together.

I love you and am NEVER farther than your needing me.

oh, and mich,,,you have my days out, Nov. 10-11, and Nov.29th-Dec.3-4th... I know you don't know any time frames yet, but I would especially like something from you to print and carry with me to the hospital on the 29th...the nights will be very hard...my parents do NOT know that I am going to be alone at night and I am petrified that they will find out...I know what that means....

cyn, my husband will be there for the surgery, just has to leave afterward...just thinking I want the laptop...scared of not connecting here, but don't know what condition i will be in either...when I go for preop Friday, I will find out if I can have one and if there is some kind of lock storage in the room...

I really know nothing other than I am EXHAUSTED....I talked to my friend Jody today. My best friend around here...she is a youth pastors wife...She has also been in a psych hospital...I am really confused now though as to what to do. I guess I just want to talk to Jim. H never even brought it up today. A littel disappointed in that, but ,maybe he was waiting for me to do that. I was also hoping to hear from Jim which I never did. I just wanted him to call here. H stayed home this afternoon as I was a wreck. He came home at noon and was very sweet. I talked to Jody for 2 hours on the phone and just cried. I told her the truth about the baby and everything else...h stayed away from me, and took care of the kids so I could talk to her. He knows that he can't help me. I just know that I am scared...and I feel helpless. I told Jody that I was losing what little bit of hope that I had. I felt like Jim was my hope that I was holding onto. Just please keep holding girls. I know you haven't let me go cause I can feel it...It is just a very tough time for me. Though i am sorry that you guys have had to deal with this, I am very thankful that I have had you to go through this WITH me. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Mandy
