Oh man, my husband's gonna say "I told you so!"

snurched from bexxa:



You Are a Liberal for Life



You've got a bleeding heart - and you're proud of it.

For you, liberal means being compassionate, pro-government, and anti-business.

You believe in equality for every person, and you consider yourself universally empathetic.

Helping others is not just political for you ... it's very personal too.

Surgery was hurry up and wait and then intense. I'm feeling much better today and trying to get my life back on track but still painful with two drains.

My 14 year old daughter wanted nothing to do with any of this and simply ignored me. It hurt a lot. The 10 year old was solicitous and wanted to be with her father. I must admit feeling very sorry for myself and picking a huge fight with my husband last night--he has the worst time showing how he feels and yesterday as I was recovering he spent all his time with the girls and left me alone. I should feel grateful that he got them to their appointments and got their meals, etc. But I wanted attention without asking. I do that--I want the pampering without asking. He is very logical and says how can he know what I want without me asking. I find it really difficult to do this--so I get up and get myself meals, etc. Then get really pissed that I have to do this. I realized at 4 am that my stubbornness is idiotic.

L did come to me late yesterday afternoon and apologized for ignoring me and not wishing me good luck on the surgery. Teenagers are very difficult to figure out.

My mother-in-law called me yesterday afternoon to see if I had voted. Not to ask how I was doing, but she is obsessed with the current election. Not-withstanding the results of the quiz, I am very tired of this election and decided not to pull myself together yesterday and for the first time in my voting life, didn't vote. So, I guess whoever wins I shouldn't complain.

I am so very tired of this life.

You are very special and very loved. You make a beautiful mark on this planet with your sweet gentle spirit and loving ways. You are a rare person that spreads joy and happiness across places where your feet have never tread. You are someone that I am truly, deeply and incredibly honored to be able to call friend.

These times...they're speed bumps in the road of life. They make us realize, with each step, how fragile and important life is. They also bring priorities into crystal clear perspective. That doesn't make the bumps easy by any stretch. Some days they may be mountains. Or cliffs with no way of passage in sight. But the light is always there...shining from the other side. And once you get to the top, you get the privilege of looking back and seeing the gorgeous view.

I'm so sorry you're dealing with these things. If I could take them from you, I would. Unfortunately, I can't. They are your burdens to bear. But I can walk beside you, hold your hand, and maybe make the burden a bit easier. I hope I accomplish a little bit of that as I send you all of the love and encouragement that I can muster. Know that you and your entire family are in my prayers.

You get in touch with me *anytime* Ix...I'm here for you and I love you. *hugs*
(((you)))

It sucks, all of it.
I'm so sorry you have to go through all this crap. ((hugs)).

Remember, that men are mysterious creatures, no matter how long you've been married. And teenagers are so difficult to figure out at the best of times.

Sending some "get the better and quite feeling so sick" vibes.

Your courage and acceptance always amazes and humbles me. Your warmth and generosity too. I'm praying that the worst is over for you now, and you can get back to normality with your life and your family.

Teens can be strange in these situations, it's as if they resent the illness that has separated you from them. I can't comment on husbands because I've never had one. *g*

Hoping the pain abates and wishing you a speedy recovery.

God I know what you're going through! I wish I could make it easier for you and I understand alot of what you are feeling. Just when you think things are finally going your way, everything goes wrong. I've been there and it still seems to be happening.
I think we have similar husbands and kids, but I know they love me and so do yours. They just don't know how to deal with it.
Hang in there girl! You know I'm here anytime you need me!
