I have now had an icd for 8 mo.
Does anyone have anything to help me with living with this?
Hey Rog, call me, I found some stuff of the diagnosis you gave me the other day and the info I found. You may have seen it already, but I just wanted to pass it on if you didn't.

Do you ever feel like you are the odd man out? Lately it seems I find myself being the only one in my crowd who isn’t boo-hoo’n or putting someone down to the core. Especially the ones who are down on their luck, or have made a bad choice and nw re in a tough spot from that and need some help and support.

I guess the reason it bothers me so, is that I remember when I made some stupid choices in my life and if it would not been for a few around me that took me under their wing, I’m not certain where I’d be now.

A couple days ago, I met my daughter-in-law in town, I pulled a bag from my back seat and showed her excitedly, the baby outfits I just bought for her soon to be grandson. As soon as she saw it, she threw up her hands, walked towards her car in a huff and said,

“I don’t want anything to do with it or that ‘bitch’!”(her daughter, my grand daughter) I began to feel the tears when she said that. I spoke up and said,

“I am so glad, when I was only fifteen, my family didn’t do that to me”!

She then turned and asked,“Just what do you mean by ‘that’ statement?, what did I do to ‘her’?”

I said,“turn your back on her”.

Oh dear, you would have thought I had pulled a loaded gun on her. She ran to the car and got in and shut the door. My son came over upset at what I said and began defending her. It turned into a ridiculous emotional mess. We parted and later he called me on the phone to try to ‘explain’ why I was so wrong at my answer to her. I guess because she gave her chances early on in her pregnancy, and the girl is not listening, that it isn’t her turning her back, it is the daughter turning her back. I guess because she is going to go and live with her grandma a while to get into a peaceful environment to prepare for this baby to come.

I am not overly emotional as a rule. I do not call anyone foul or slanderous names and I feel as an adult, we have to use some restraint in how we speak to others and how we respect others. Unless we are without blame in wrong doing or making wrong choices in our lives, we have no right kicking the other guy or gal in this case while they are down.

This girl is eighteen years old from a broken home. A mother who lives on a roller coaster of emotion and is addicted to prescription drugs for her depression. Is paranoid to show affection toward her children or anyone else. And we wonder why this child has gone out and received the affections of others and became pregnant out of marriage? The father is only a kid himself who is messed up as bad. So yes, she needs someone, to be there even if she falls. That is how I feel and it is an extremely emotional subject to me.

Why is it I am the odd one who feels we should treat others equal to what we want to be treated? I don’t understand it. Right now, I have her father on my side of this battle, but it is so painful to see this anger and even hate come out of people for the wrong doings in thier lives when they, themselves are messed up!

It is so easy to point a finger and not realize we have four pointed right back at ourselves. I wish people would get it, we are on this earth to do good and live according to the golden rule.‘Do unto to those that you would have done unto you’.

No one loves their family more than I do. I love them to a fault, I give to a fault and I concern myself to a fault. That's me and always has been. Maybe it stresses me because like most parents, you want to believe that you instilled some of what you believe strongly in, into your children. Then when it seems they turn thier backs on your teaching, we or I should say I, ask 'where did I go wrong'? They are grown now, will I have made a difference in these lives I gave all I had for when I raised them? It is a question I have to deal with.

Roberta Lamb hates Hillary Clinton for covering up and condoning her husband as a sexual predator, and for threatening the victims!

Thing is, Roberta Lamb is no different than Hillary Clinton!
