I'm probably a jerk
« on: October 12, 2010, 02:00:37 AM »
I am so furtunate to have a brother whom I love.  He came and picked me up and insisted that I go out with him for  a whie.  He MADE me drink a couple of drinks and it led to a great converation.  I feel like I'm finally starting to return to a sense of normalcy.  It's amazing how an epitheny occurs.  I assumed he wanted to talk about me, but he wanted adivce on his own marriage.  I don't much about female relations, but I really think I made impact.  He decided to go home and stop being a jerk. 

If nothing else, I appreciate most of you.  He took me to a place that doesn't serve white Zin, so I had to drinki beer......Now I probably need help tomorrow

I agree ,not with you being a jerk , but the joy off having a brother, and for me also a brother in law that you love.

Thank you.  I'm finally coming out of my depressive shell.  I am so glad I found this forum.  For 20 years, I never needed to reach out because I had the greatest support at home.  Loosing Bill was the greatest tragedy I endured through this whole illness.  He was negative and I always assumed he'd be there with me until my end and to suddenly loose him just about destroyed me.  Well, actually it did for quite a while. 

I'm now putting it in perspective.  I had so many friends who didn't even live long enough to enjoy 15 years with the love of their lives.  Things will be different, but they can be good again. 

Thanks again and have a great day!

That is the key, right there. I remember when Wes died, I thought I would never be happy again.

I was wrong, of course. But you are right, things are now different for me, but they are good.
