Welcome back home!!! You were missed sorely here on the forum but that trip to see your daughter and grandbaby was top priority. I am so glad that you made the trip to see them. I know it did you a world of good. Isn't it amazing how those little ones can make us forget if we feel bad, there is some kind of energy that is exchanged and its incredible. Your little one is at the toddler stage and they are just so darn cute and funny. They really can be our best medicine I am convinced. I know how my little guy makes me feel and there is nothing like it.
So glad to hear your dr changed up how to take your medication. You know you are so lucky to have a dr that actually listens to you. I have one of the same and I tell her every time I see her how thankful I am that she is my dr. She keeps reminding me the pain will increase as time goes by and I become tolerant to the setting of my pump and she knows my activity level has made an incredible jump which will increase the pain. But, she looks at me and grins and says "I can take care of that". Its great comfort is all I can say.
I am very sorry to hear how things went with your daughter and s-i-l, but for some reason I am not really surprised either. I only say this because of her past behavior since you and your wife split up. I remember her thinking she was entitled to information about the split that was really none of her business. I know that was definetly additional stress that you did not need, but please, please try not to let this get to you. I know its extremely hard because she is your daughter. All I will say is she needs to act like an adult about this divorce and get over it. No, she is not a kid any longer, she is an adult and needs to handle herself that way. Hopefully time will take care of this, but unless she has a major attitude adjustment, you may be in for the long haul. Regardless, I know you are very hurt and you have a right to feel this way. Once things settle down and the air clears, it may be time to sit down and write your daughter a letter.
Anyway, welcome back home!!!!
Welcome HOME!! We missed you.....I'm so sorry for all you went through, but now you can begin to relax, you are alone in your home, your meds are adjusted and you had a wonderful visit with your youngest and her family! It can only get better for you!
WhiteBeard, I have not taken the time to say it is great to have you back with us. I know how the family things go when there is a divorce or a death. My father was married 4 times and my mother twice. All my natural siblings have been married and divorced at least several times. When my parents died, I had the role as the executor of their wills. That was difficult as their spouses resented the fact that I was the executor and it was messy with many hard feelings. What I can say is that the old saying that time heals all wounds might be true but the scars remain. I wish you inner healing as I know the whole issue is not over.
I agree with the sediments of others here, while you were out dealing with personal issues, you were missed.
