  • Gosh Tammy, I cam here thinking of posting because I had a rough week, but mine was nothing compared to yours, your story put mine into perspective.
    I feel for you, having all this weight piled on your shoulders right now. I hope that your son and daughter are doing better, and that your dad is able to enjoy doing what he loves, with the people that he loves, for the time that he has left, and is spared from suffering.

    Just remember to take deep breaths, and save a few minutes each day just for you. And if you need someone to listen, we are here for you.

  • Words cannot express how bad I feel for you right now. To loose people close to you is a very hard thing to endure when you are well. When you are in pain it just makes it harder to endure. I lost my cocker spaniel last year, and like your dog, he was my shadow. I cried and missed him like crazy. I just last month adopted a 2 year old female cocker from a gal who had to give her up. Being in pain, I didnt want a pup. She is a delight and makes me laugh daily. She is not "Buddy" But she has sure filled a hole in my heart. He was there for me too. And now Bella is. So maybe that is something that will help you to deal with things.
    As far as your father, it is a tough thing. I hope that you have the strength to deal with it. I know how it feels when things just keep happening. One right after the other. You just feel like God is handing you too much. But I do believe that he wont give us more than we can endure, and it makes us stronger and more caring people. It is just so hard to deal with it at the time.
    Please dont EVER feel alone. There are alot of nights that I am on here, off and on. And also alot during the day. I will always be here for you to PM me. I have needed that person before, and I want to be there if the load becomes to much to bear! Keep the faith, because it will help you through it. ANd share your troubles with your husband or someone that can be there to hold you when you cry. It helps. Hope this helps, and PM me any time. Love, Robin
