No problem Dr. Leslie, this is one of those awesome topics of yours!!! People need to be open and honest with each other, that's it!!! No beating around the bush! Straight forward, no bending words! (Bending/mincing)? I.D.K.? LOL!!!
Your mind amazes me, Dr. Leslie!!! Thank you!!!!!!!
It was on your site, Dr. Leslie, but it wasn't posted here? I honestly believe that topic is ripe for discussion? I may be wrong, but why not? If anyone here would like to read this topic first, click on that title at the top of this page? A most interesting read/topic!
In my many, many years of dating, and my marriage included, I suffered from the wrath of several steaming mad ladies because of this lack we men have?! We are not mind readers, and no, I do not know the body language, either, so no, I can't just "GET YOU" because I love you?!
Ladies, us men cannot read your mind, so no, we just cannot help out if we don't know what it is you want from us??? Please, PLEASE tell us what it is you want us to do? If I said something you didn't like in front of all your family, don't just glare at me, tell me!!! Be specific, also! I have had to pry answers from some ladies. No, don't think for one instant that I know what you want from body language?! Trust me, I can't read a body like a book, sorry!!! I know I should just "get you" because I love you, but I don't, sorry?!
Listen up, ladies, we lowly men are not Supermen!!! NO, we CAN'T read your mind!!! We cannot "read" your body language!!! And NO, we cannot "just get you" because we love you!!! We are the dumber of the sexes, at least that is what we are led to believe, right?! Maybe I was sick, and not in school when they taught these lessons? No matter now, if you want me to get you, then tell me what it is you want from me? Trust me, I will be glad to do it!!! I do love to please my ladies!!!
I have been honest in everything I have said here, please be honest, also, in your responses. Lets have a real, frank, honest discussion on this topic, please? Great! I started, who is up next?
You really have had a horrible life, haven't you? You poor dear!!! No one should ever have to go through life as you have?! No one should ever have that kind of control over another! Unless of course it means life or death? You are so right, this is a horrible way to live!
I hope you don't give up completely, not yet, anyway? We, your friends here, would like some time to at least try to help you? You have come so far from when we first met, I would hate to see you throw all of that away?! I know how hard you try! You have done so much to help yourself out! If someone makes you mad, please come right here so we can talk about it, okay?
I also know you really DO NEED this surgery! If there are any concerns you have, ask some questions? Maybe someone right here has had the same thing, and they could tell you everything to expect?! I myself, have been through several surgeries, and I am still here, luckily! I have let perfect strangers work on my neck, really close to points that could hurt me, or worse, you know? This last one, I really did NOT want to go through! But, I listened to my neck grinding bone on bone long enough, something had to give! My poor nerves are damaged enough, I couldn't pass this one up! Was I in pain? SURE WAS!!! Was I in agony? SURE WAS!!! Would I do it all again? SURE WOULD!!! I knew deep down that this was the only way I would ever get at least some relief?!! I finally did! I still have nerve damage, but at least my neck isn't grinding grinding grinding all day and night! What a relief!!!
I am hoping you can do the same as I did? You will have to place your trust in a stranger, can you do that? I want you to know we will be right behind you, no, right beside you! Every step of the way!!! You will never be alone!!! We may not be there in person, but we sure will be there in spirit!!! I will even send you all of my good vibes, I won't even keep one for myself the day you have surgery!!! Promise!!!
I hear you Debbie, you must have had some family? And by some I mean none?! You had no support system, then! You do now, US!!! Please allow us to be your family support system? Everyone here loves you, wants you, needs you too!!! We are a family of sorts, and that is what a family should do?! You also have our respect! Anyone that could live through the life you had, and still be here trying so hard, has my deepest respect!!!!! I can't speak for everyone, I realize, but you certainly do have my respect!!!
I know you need this operation, and I have to hope you let us help you through it?! I can speak for everyone when I say that, because we have all said it before?! Please, Deb, please let us help you through this, not just the operation, but in getting your life back, too?! I will be your family! I'm pretty sure the others will say that, also?!!!
You are still relatively young! You can get your life back on track, with a little help from your friends/family right here!!! The saying goes with friends, but we friends are family, too!!!! LOL!!! C-mon Deb, lets start your new life together? What do ya say??? I am pretty sure I heard a yes? Great, now lets get started with your new life!!!
We will help, I will help, every step of the way! And that is a promise you can take to the bank!!!
Thank you! Bubba was older than I ever thought he could get to? He made all these funny little noises at me one night before I went to bed? I turned back around and said "now you talk to me"? "Why couldn't you have done this all along"? Well, I got no more small squeaks and chirps? What I did get was even more special to me than anything I can think of? I reached in and rubbed my finger across his cheek, he grabbed my finger and held it to his cheek. Bubba had to of known he was about to go, so he hugged me in the only way he could! Two days later, I am kneeling on the floor stroking Bubba's head with the finger he hugged. He gave a lurch, gasping for breath that wouldn't come, he laid back down on the couch and looked at me. He knew I couldn't help him, he looked resigned to his fate? He tried again to breath, and again he failed. All the while I have been telling him it was okay, and that I would be okay without him, he started to open his mouth once more, but barely got it open before he was all gone? I was sure he was, but all I could do was keep stroking his little head and repeating the same thing over and over?! Finally I noticed his eyes were glazed over, and my knees hurt like he double L, so I said good bye Bubby. Wrapped him in his favorite t-shirt of mine, and placed him in a box, and walked over to the park where Bobo his brother was, and Priscilla Lilly was buried, dug out a nice big hole, placed the box in it, said good bye one more last time, and buried him. No, no grave markers! I wouldn't want some kids exhuming him, just for their morbid little minds?
Yes, I am sure no more rat pets! If I could get a pug, or some other small breed, something like a terrier, then fine, I would have a pet? Until then, no way! I am so sad each time they go, and I can't take that anymore!!!
I hope all is well with you, or as well as can be? How is school going? You are about two years into this, aren't you? That means when you are done you can go straight to work, right? Or, are they still going overseas so fast you can only hope some remain? I haven't heard, nor read anything of this for a long time now, so I have no Idea if they are or not? I do hope you get one, and one you love, too!!!
Busy, busy, busy, you sure are one busy bee, aren't you? LOL!!! As long as you are getting things done, you can see actual progress, right? I can't wait to see my name in lights!!! Wait, what??? Oh, thats right, I am not the author. Ahemmm, ahemmm, sorry bout that, Roh! I got caught up in all the commotion of being the author's brother! I can see it now... Dennis and Roh, best sellers take media by storm!!! In fact, I think I got a call from one of those movie studios? They want to make my book a wait, what? Ohhh, riiggghhhhhhtttttttttt, this is not my book, I keep forgetting that?! However, they said they wanted to do a movie from one of my books, oops, your books, that is?! Funny how I keep turning that around huh? Look, I only want 60% of everything, that's not too much to ask for, now is it? I mean, look, I am going to have my face plastered to every billboard across America touting your book, It isn't much to ask for, now is it?
I'm glad to hear the new meds are doing the trick, but? What is this about rough patches with the spouse??? Is it you backsliding, or is it the spouse's doing? I know how bad it can get with a nagging wife tugging at your shirttail? I didn't say that!!! Nope, you got the wrong man, officer! LOL!!! Not a laughing matter tho, is it? I know how hard you struggle with this! I can only hope you two are together long enough to get it all together, and end up happily married for the rest of your lives!!!
I know this for sure, anyone that can write such a wonderful, magical story, is someone to hold onto! One more thing I am sure of, you two will make it, I can feel it in here! What? Oh, sorry about that! I was pointing at my heart, well, the breastbone anyway? LOL!!!
All I can say is: YOU GO ROH!!!!!!!!!!! (I was going with you go girl, but that is not p.c., politically correct) So, YOU GO ROH fits better!!!
I keep getting pulled deeper and deeper into this story, I can't thank you enough for letting me read it!!!!!!
Hi there, sweetie! I come here every morning to see if anyone is in need of my expertise in all things earthly? I know everything! I am SUPERMAN! Wait, what??? Oh, I see now, You were just playing with those words? Please try to remember, some people are smart enough to put two and two together, and come up with who I am? I don't want anyone to know who I truly am, because I have retired broken, and battered, and left for dead last time anyone saw me. No one knows I still live but you.
Please try to keep this under your hat, okay? I swore you to secrecy, remember? Wait, what? Ohhh, never mind, it wasn't you after all? Ha, ha, he, he. Go on about your business now, consider yourself hypnotised!!! You will never tell a soul who I really am, okay? Whatttt??? Oh, ha, ha, I am not the real deal afterall? Awesome dude!!!
Oh well, I bet you thought you would be famous knowing where the Batman lives? What??? Oh, right, Superman, I meant Superman!!! Oh drat, I am not him, I am only me? Poor lil only me! LOL!!!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day at work? And enjoy your hometime even more?!!! You lil Devil you!!!
Hello, hello, is there anybody out there? If you receive this transmission, please reply post haste, as I am feeling like the only man on this planet? Did I say planet? I meant to say, on this board?! Where has everyone gone off to? Everytime I holler, all I get back are echos? I don't believe there is anybody around?
I feel so lonely here, with only an echo for company. And the worst part is, the echo never asks its own questions!!! It only answers me with that whiney tone, I am so sick of that whiney tone!!! Wait, what??? There are people here? Well then, where are they? I don't see anyone? What??? Oh, that's right, this is on screen not in person, my bad! LOL!!!
Okay then, where are you? I am here! Where is here? It is....here! I know that, but where is here? It is.... this does not compute, this does not compute, this does not compute............! Fine then, I will leave "HERE", and come back later, okay? That is fine, that does compute! Greeaaatttttt! Thank you ever so much!!!
Fhewwwww, I was kinda lost for a second there? I thought I was all alone on this planet, and then, I was all alone here, right here where here is! You know where it is, dontcha? Its right here!
I hope all is well with all? I guess I am? I hurt myself yesterday! I tried to carry waaayyyyy to many grocery bags up my stairs, and when I almost reached the top, one big bag of cereal tried to fall out of the bag, and I tried to catch it like some dummy, and now I hurt right between the shoulderblades, again?! This is a reminder of "I AM NOT HEALED TOTALLY, YET"!!!
Well, I will have to remember this agonizing pain, so there won't be another OUCH, in my future!!!!!!
I do hope everyone is fine, and at work like you are supposed to be? LOL!!!
Well, if no one saw your face, how would they know its you? By your ip address? Yep, what you did, is exactly what a billion other people did! At least you never let them see your face, that is a plus!!!
If you go there again, and that guy recognises you, tell him the pics are cut from the pages of a magazine? Ha ha, the joke is on them! You see?
