I am no posting anything beyond this,but i want to say i am sorry to everyone about my stupid comments. i guess it was because i was angry at under's ordeal, but thats no excuse. i truly believe all of you are great people and that is proven by the fact you live with such pain but still are concerned with the wellbeing of others.

stress is a huge motivating factor, and when coupled with pain......grrrrrrr grrrr grrrrrrr foot in mouth :x

Lately (not on this forum thankfully) ive been letting stress get the best of me due to my current situation, and ive been inclined to vocally tell others just exactly how I feel about certain things. !@#$%^&*() <----I would need far more symbols than these to cover up whats come out of my mouth lately when I'm out of ear shoot of the 3 kids I temporarily took custody of. They were literally dropped onto my doorstep courtesy of negligent family on my girlfriend's side and the from the lovely folks at child protective/social services who are ZERO help whatsoever. Well the father who recently came home from a deployment was sent a red cross message to come home and get custody of his children, but he doesn't care about his children so he sits in fort benning georgia. I just hope that when we meet face to face, I don't cause his jaw to be wired shut :x.....because those poor kids are so under developed and have severe behavioral issues, as the father decided to commit to a second deployment last year after just coming off of 1 because he didn't want to deal with the stress of taking care of the kids. The mother went insane and that is pretty much how they landed on my doorstep.

So yeah, I've had A LOT of stupid comments to say to people lately. I've put a lot of people in their place. Do I feel bad about it latter, yes. However my point is this spinal, when under a great deal of stress and pain, its human nature to lash out with comments from time to time. The hardest part is not letting the stress harden our heart permanently. You and I both realize our mistakes, and that right there is an important step :) If we talk with God, and admit our mistakes to each other, it keeps us human too. hehe

     It is easy, when looking from the outside in, to think you know what is going on in someone else's life. In all reality, you are only privy to one moment in time, with only one persons point of view. You don't know that persons full history. You don't know what they ate for breakfast or which shoe they put on first in the morning. You don't know the full medical history of the persons who's life you have decided to immerse yourself in. All you know are the small tid bits you have been told. Only the bits that stand out in that persons mind who is relaying events to you.
     The moment you begin act out in someone else's life as if it were your own... well, that is a very large indication that it is time to look inward. It is time to assess and heal the reasons why you have developed such strong emotions towards ANYONE that makes you lash out and verbally attack others, let alone someone within your Support Group / Family / Co Workers / Social Friends.
     When you think you must "Put someone in their place" ....in all reality the person you have unleashed your unwarranted anger on is someone who has far more impulse control and  doesn't feel the need to share deeply personal aspects of their life with you, from that point forth. You probably have just missed a tremendous opportunity to know someone very special.
    Golden Rule :
  1. One should treat others according to how one would like others to treat one's self
  2. Treat others as you would like to be treated
  3. One should not treat others in ways one would not like to be treated
  4. Do not treat others in ways you would not like to be treated 

     Healing Well Rule:

    4. No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-       members.   Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member.  Decisions about health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices.  "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.

                         Now, lets all get back to square one where we belong.

                                      Friendship, Knowledge, Support.

And sorry I could not travel both

I have been away for awhile (just not feeling up to sitting at the computer much) so I missed the drama. I am glad I did, but I hope that people don't quit posting because of it. Spinal Soldier, you have been a big support since you joined our family and you have given alot of good info. I hope you rethink your decision to not post anymore, I for one will miss you.

Can't we all just let it go and move on? Let's be one big happy (but in pain :() family. I love you all!
