Before I respond, and I will respond, can you do me a solid and respond that message https://community.humanastory.com/topic/678-changing-perceptions/
For me as well, I am trying to get my community started, its slow going and would really help me if some activity other than myself was there lol.
Now... My response.
I find this is my greatest struggle, it is so hard from time to time; I find relating to others rather difficult at times as well. Mainly because I just know that most people do not really understand my plight.
You know reading this makes me see, why I take care of my mother, it reminds me that I am doing the right thing, I find all to often people are simply dumping the elderly off at nursing homes and washing their hands of their parents or relatives. I personally think that it is a sh*tty way to spend your last days.
Your mother really meant what she said because you were there for her. Rare quality these days.
Amen to that! It really does take going through a situation before one can truly apreciate the plight. I find 85% of the people on the planet don't even know what it feels like to live in hardship - All to often I see people on their 'moral high ground' not completely comprehending the situation they are trying to understand, that drives me batty.
I don't think it ever gets any easier, I don't know what I would do in those situations, I got my wife and my mother, I don't really know anyone else. One thing that the years of being hospitalized did to me, was ruin my social skills in high school or school period. I wasn't able to develop as well as I would like as a result.
I wish you were so much closer, @Maddox we would be sharing dinners and drinking tea together (I dont care how 'Gay' it sounds) I feel we'd have an awesome friendship. But much like true Brian Fashion, the friend I make is 15,000 miles away. Well, I am pleased with what I get, @Maddox you are an awesome gentleman, I'd love to hear your story on your mom and how you handled that at some point.
