Thanks Ed . . . good thought.
FinalNirvana . . . I was once told a picture story about life. The story teller likened life to a trip through the grocery store. If I go into the grocery store and select bananas and pears (because that's what I like to eat) and another shopper comes by and selects apples and peaches . . . that's ok. But when the other person who likes apples and peaches starts condemning my bananas . . . well that is just THEIR opinion. It doesn't make bananas a bad choice.
That analagy has helped me ignore ignorant comments from ignorant people. I sometimes pretend that I have an 'emotional umbrella'. I take out the umbrella when I am trying to protect myself from insensitive or ignorant people. It works very well for me.
Sorry about the night-mares. That is disturbing. I have dealt with occassional boughts with bad dreams as well . . . I'm greatful for every good night's sleep that I have.
