I just read an online news article about a Son who saved his fathers life. But this was the third time he did this. First it was pulling him out of a pool because he was drowning, second bringing him to the ER because of too many medications and just recently pulling him out of a burning home.
This time the son himself is in serious condition... All because of the stunts his father pulled. There probably is not much greater sacrifices that we can make except for our spouses and children. But this person did it for some sort of joy, he was not concerned about how his son or others would handle everything.
I think I've begun to aquire knowledge on how to help with our physical problems,, I doubt if I will ever achieve the same when it comes to individual and personal situations. I can try and will.... Who knows if I can reach onlhy a handfuls better than I did the day before

  • How old is the son? I have to wonder if the father is suicidal or just playing games for the attention. Isn't it awful the trauma some parents cause their children? There have been times in my life where I have to stop and say wait a minute, I'm the parent here, and force myself to stop letting my children take care of me. There is a fine line there. It sounds like that man needs to be on medication or in a mental institution--3 times, wow! The son needs to distance himself from the father.

    I often will put aside my own difficulties to help someone else. When I get down and low I know that serving others helps me forget about my own issues. Although when I get really really down there is no way I have the strength to pull myself up to help someone else. Your last paragraph where you talk about understanding the personal issues is very thought provoking. Yes, we can all try, and I will too. However, when a person plays the kind of games that father is playing, my opinion is that it will take a professional mental health specialist.

    Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
  • Is to so hard for us to forget the fact that sometimes people just have bad luck? The Overdose, well that is probably the fathers fault. The other two could be real accidents.

    You sure can't blame the son for saving dad!

    How about the person who missed the flight out of brazil only to die in a car accident!!! Now that is some bad ju-ju...
