Dennis I'm so very sorry for your loss and the pain you're going through. I wish words were enough to make the pain go away. It can be very devastating to lose a pet. Especially your Bubba! He was your buddy!
I'm glad that you had him in your life and I'm glad that of all the places he could've ended up in this world he ended up in your home. You are such a good and kind man Dennis. Everyone that has had the opportunity to know you has been blessed.
I want you to know that you are loved and cared for too! I'm sorry again friend (((HUGS)))View Thread
I seem to recall you giving an analogy a long time ago about marriage being a two way street, but your words were more like 'two lanes of a highway' with further information. Was this you? Do you remember? I would love if you could let me know how it went. It's been on my mind and I believe would be good words for a dear friend of mine. Thank you!View Thread
Umm...it was something about marriage is like a two lane highway and sometimes there's construction or roadblocks in one lane...
I just remember it made a lot of sense. It was a looong time ago! Lol, probably a couple years ago! I've thought about it at different times, but never remembered it completely. I was pretty sure it was you that wrote it.View Thread
Hi anon, I just wanted to say I'm so sorry that you have to suffer like you do. I can't even imagine having to live with pain like that. Not at all..
I want to offer another point of view about suicide though. Once a person commits suicide they create a legacy in their family. Once one person does it it opens the door to others to do it. It becomes more acceptable as a way to deal with things.
The father of my friend's children is suicidal due to psychiatric reasons and he's had other family members who have committed suicide. It's now a part of their family legacy. It's now an option to those children. And it will be for their children.
Your life does have value to your loved ones. I'm sure they appreciate that you are still here for them.
Have you looked into a holistic doctor for treatment? Some people like to exhaust all options before they try holistic. Maybe you're there. It's not really as crazy as it sounds. A holistic 'doctor' is a medically trained doctor just like the doctor you see now they just have a different approach to finding the solutions. A whole body approach. I'm just trying to offer another solution to your pain.
I pray you're able to find new solutions and live a life without the pain. I know that may sound ridiculous with the amount of pain you live with but I pray it all the same. Take careView Thread
Hi Dennis! Happy Thanksgiving!
I was thinking of you today and hoping you were in good spirits:)
I've had a very nice day. I have the feast here at my house so I've been quite busy! It was a good day. Things quieted done sooner than I would've liked, but I think it's good cuz my body's ready to give up lol!
Maybe you gave them an opening, but so what, that could be said about any post here. When people post here they make themselves vulnerable and there are people who choose to take advantage of that.
There's nothing wrong with coming here and venting. Most of us have done that. It's good to get that initial weight off ourselves. It helps us to handle our situations in a more productive manner when it's time.
Unfortunately, sometimes we need to harden to people in this world. Especially on the internet where people get especially cruel behind the safety of their keyboards.
I don't think you should let this person or any other 'hater' take away from your experience here. If you ignore instead of engage them they will go away. I know that's easier said than done since they can really shoot low. Also I know you all are very close and treat each other as family and are very open. Don't let someone take that away from you!
I was very hesitant about it also. We watched it probably a year after it came out. It is a good movie. I wasn't sold on the acting in it. It's worth watching, but that doesn't mean everyone has the strength or devotion that it takes both people in that position to put in the energy to save a marriage.
It is something that would be nice to know about BEFORE a marriage is hanging by a thread. Check it out.View Thread
