I am glad your asthma is improving, albeit slowly. I’m sure being off the prednisone will take away that ‘climbing the walls’ feeling. I hope the improvements will continue for you.
I understand why it is a lonely time for you, Aurora. Even though I don’t have children of my own, I can imagine that you must miss your sons when they are not around. I hope we can all support you and help you through the coming weeks, especially while your son is on holidays. I am just starting to catch up after being away for a couple of days due to work, etc., but I know Karen was arranging a chat for tomorrow, so maybe that will become a regular thing again.
That must be so hard to think of your other son’s ex-fiancé, and I know you hurt for her because you are a caring person. I hope this won’t sound too harsh to you, but I think with all the problems she’s had, and the possibility that she may have some mental or emotional difficulties, it might be best for her to try to deal with this, and maybe seek some professional help instead of continuing to lean on your son. I think your son may be right that she needs to deal with the decisions she has made, and perhaps she needs to learn more about
herself and why she makes the choices that she does. I really don’t mean to sound heartless about
this at all……I guess what I’m saying is that sometimes we can’t save people from themselves, and they have to go through certain things in order to grow and find their own happiness. I really do hope that things will get better for her soon.
I’m so sorry about
the loneliness, Aurora. I live alone by choice, but I still have certain parts of my life that I wish I could share with someone…..when I see a beautiful sunset, or when I discover something really nice when I am out walking in the woods, or when I watch a funny movie at home and want to share a laugh. It can be hard at times, but I hope you will find some comfort here from those who care about
you. If I can get home in time tomorrow, I will try to get to chat. In the meantime, you will be in my thoughts and prayers as always. (((hugs)))
