Re: New Lady But not so New

Dear MissZee, I'm not too sure I'm someone your interested in getting to know but I would like to get to know you. I understand the childhood abuse problems.  While you got into the self abuse my self destruction was totally different.  I pushed myself to succeed and to be everybody's caregiver unti...

Re: Let's Be Friendly!

Worthywoman,
Come into the chat room and introduce yourself.  No need for a shield, just realize that while we are a tight knit group we do welcome others.  Sometimes we do get a bit protective of each other.

Re: Looking for friends

Louie, It has nothing to do with my driving.  I believe it is more his fear of losing me.  As long as he can keep me safely in our home he thinks he can keep me safe.  He spent three days hearing the doctors saying that I might not make it out of the trauma room.  My son days that the two weeks whil...

Re: Looking for friends

I'm in an isolation bubble because I got an infection.  I rarely go anywhere because if I get a bacterial infection it could kill me. Since I live in a fairly isolated area in the mountains there is little risk of catching something from other people and we do keep the house fairly sanitized.  Today...

Re: Looking for friends

My husband is my primary caregiver.  He went from not knowing how to make a sandwich to having to do most the cooking.  He has adapted fairly well.  He has been apologetic about how much work he expected of me before I got ill. At the moment though I'm in isolation with a nurse full time.  The nurse...

Re: I wonder

The thing about your riddle that I find interesting is the that you put God into physical concepts so that you are then able to deny that God can exist.

Re: Looking for friends

I think that for me it doesn't matter the age or gender as much as the real understanding of what it is like living with limited mobility and independence. Five years ago I went from a fairly active retired person enjoying teaching first graders and substituting once in a while at the uni, to 8 mont...

Re: Saying hello

I'm a grandmother that lost her leg a few years back.  I was doing well with my prosthesis until other problems came along.  Now I spend most my time either in my wheelchair or in a recliner. I keep working on my walking so I don't completely lose it but I'll admit there are a lot of times I get dis...

Re: New Friends

Ali, I am female with below the knee amputation. You didn't say what type of amputation you had.  Most of my problems stem more from other problems relating to the cause of my amputation than the loss of limb.  I had adjusted to the prosthesis fairly well until my other problems started surfacing. I...

Re: Think of Others Too

I doubt that the persons that have complained to you would go to someone else for the very reasons they gave you.
Some people I've noticed only want people who agree with them allowed to state their opinions.

Re: Think of Others Too

Having a go between would be just another level of moderator. I've seen times where what one person says to another could be considered not kind, but part the reason it wasn't "kind" was the person's in ability to empathise in that situation.  Would it then be fair to criticise because of a mental "...

Thank you for letting us know that it is because your doing so much better that you won't be around as much.  That brings joy to my heart.
