Some Painful Days....
Thursday, July 25, 2013
I have not been on in a while, because of some personal issues. First, and easier to deal with was my daughter's oral surgery. She had adult teeth impacted in her palate and they needed to be removed. The surgery was yesterday and I was so worried for her, but she pulled through like a champ and is more upset with the inconvenience of it, rather than the pain! Next step, she must get braces and prepare for eventual removal of the stubborn baby teeth and replacement of those with implants. She's got a long road ahead and it is hard for me to see.
Next, and not so easy to deal with: Our dearest family friend recently had a very public nervous breakdown via Facebook. He has been suffering with severe depression for years, but it finally go to be too much for him. In his delusional state he did and said very unsavory things and I spent many hours crying with his wife and our mutual friends. He is currently being treated, but I have no idea what his final diagnosis will end up being. He feels shame, but we, his friends, realize that it was his disease talking and we have told his wife to pass on the knowledge that there is nothing to forgive and we love him. Time heals all, I know, but this is a tough one to wait through. I am grateful for the anonymity of SP, because my heart is hurting and I need to share my pain with others who do not personally know me.
Thank you for the opportunity to vent. Love you all.
