She is still really struggling after many years.

I've always loved the song "Unwell" but it now has more meaning. I can't listen to this song now without tears.


"Im not crazy, I'm just a little unwell...I know right now you can't tell...but stay awhile and maybe then you'll see a different side of me. I'm not crazy - I'm just a little impaired, i know right now you don't care...but soon enough you're gonna think of me and how I used to be.......and I've been talking in my sleep...and pretty soon they'll come to get me...they'll be taking me away....."

I love that you're a rocker Girl!

Yes, what a heartbreaking story. And too-familiar. A tough read.

A friend tagged me on FB regarding this just this morning.

Sad that I understand exactly what she is feeling. But dang if she doesn't have just a handsome support hubby that can sing my thoughts away.

Girlie, I got too old to enjoy concerts. I never thought this would happen. I was going to concerts at the Filmore in very early 70's.

Now, I can't handle all the people, the possible germs and I get extremely over stimulated. Like a child, I can't sleep afterwards for many hours. Plus concerts are never in the daytime. They are always at night and run way pass my bedtime. LOL!

Things for you youngins to look forward to.

So my alternative - I get the videos. Less than the cost of a nosebleed seat and it is like being in the front row!!!

Really, PeteZa?

I doubt if I'll ever get to the point of not liking concerts...I hope not...
It's one of my favorite 'things' to do.

Nosebleed seats - nope...don't do those. Only once - when I let someone else purchase the tickets...haha.

I will be in crowded stadiums for several more years...hubby with hockey, me with concerts.

Nothing like a live performance... smile
