Don't think you give yourself near enough credit. You are a phenomenal dad, the love and pride you have in your family is evident iin your posts. Don't know too many dads who enjoy the mosh pits, just because their son is there, singing! In my business have seen all types of dads through the years, believe me, the ones like you are few and far between. My own hubby is a great guy, but was a stay-at-home-dad when it came to band performances, baseball games and the such. That was my department. On one hand I understood, he works contruction and days are long and hot here in Florida, once he gets home, he's exhausted, but on the other, he missed out on so much with his boys, and he realizes it now that they are older. Ours are all out of the house, except the youngest. At 22, he's barely ever here, between work and girlfriend, somedays only know he's been here cuz there is dirty laundry present and food missing. You must have had a great father, you learned well., and your son is lucky to have you. You deserve the kudos.
Yally, hope you got some rest and are feeling better today!! Hate to hear that so many are hurting, I ache right with you.
Mom, how the doc visit go?
Hope you are doing better, too, Boo...just wish we could all make it better somehow.
Been wondering, there's been a lot of postings about
how depression goes along with this ****we deal with every day, do you think our spouses, or "others" get depressed as well? I just wonder if maybe that's why they don't know how to deal sometimes. Got me to thinking about
this cuz, as been said before, our youngest was diagnosed with diabetes at age 2. Rough times, and his care was pretty much up to me for the most part, until he was a late teenager. I got really down sometimes, the stress of it all could get a bit much. I was healthy, working full time, but it still all got to me, too. Even though our spouses aren't caring for us in the same way, life has changed for them as well.
Oh well, just some rambling thoughts......
have a nice night all,
