Hi Regina - your post has been read and noted.<quoted text>
Please, Nasl, I've had enough. In fact, way more than my share.
I could have given you advice about how to care for your wife because I was the sole caregiver for my bed-ridden father for over two years before he died. He had had two major strokes and God knows how many TIAs. They affected his legs, he could no longer walk; also his bowels, his bladder, his arm and hands. In the middle of it all, I broke my ankle and was dealing with other health issues. Then he contracted MRSA in the hospital or rehab. It was a nightmare. He suffered a great deal. But I figured you knew what to do. She's your wife, after all. No one knows better than you how to love her. If you don't, no one can tell you how.
There are several people on this forum who suffer in silence, Nasl. They might mention it once or twice, but that's it. They don't make a fuss about it. We pray for them as well, we just don't say much, if anything, about it. I do care or else I would have said nothing. I was very sad to hear about her and still am. I also feel for you as you must be devastated. Nevertheless, if it makes you feel better to belittle and ridicule me, there's nothing I can do about that. And, yes, of course I knew you would read my post. It is a forum after all. Maybe you would like it better if I gushed all over you and made myself look good in the eyes of....men??
We all have difficulties in life. If one continues to dwell int he difficulties, one will continue to have difficulties.
I've chosen to move past the difficulties that encroach my life, including and not limited to - dealing with them directly.
You take to prayer, I take to action.
FYI - my wife is not bed-ridden, and a very willing participant in continuing with her life - all the while knowing I am with her every step of the way.
You sound like you took that path too, when you care for your family member - which is Self.
Twisting YOUR actions into some god-given talent received through a holy divine entity is bullshite and you know it, but just can't come to terms to admit it.
Like I said before - your well wishes were appreciated, but that is all you are going to get from me, because in truth, you hav no clue on why you are "sad for her", except only to give yourself a ruse - and to appease others on this forum that "you care".
If you care enough - how 'bout send my wife prayers directly. Unlike Star who sends them to the spirit world, thinking that her special request will get to her - during some point in her life or after she dies.
Really? Is this the best you got - Feel for an anonymous poster on an anonymous forum, when you haven't any contact with the person at all.
You are a classic gullible Catholic. Never researching, but always giving the lip service to those who YOU think are having unfortunate times.
BTW - all of your statements are related to Self.
Learn it, live it, love it.
