    I wouldn't be at all surprised if you were a lot like your Mom. You're one of the toughest and stongest people I know. I wish I were a bit more like you, even half as strong and determined as you, would be nice!
    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

    You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

    Awe MA... what do those things have to do with being strong? I'm talking about inner strength... not clutter!

    hey women, your alot stronger then most. Your dealing with SSG being over seas and that takes a strong person to deal with that. Think postive women and that will help make the days that much brighter.

    The thing that I really worry about is who is going to be there for Andrew when I'm older and not able to myself. We've always told Lyndsey that he will not be her responsibility, that yes he is her brother and she loves him, but she will have her own life to live. Its very unlikely that Andrew will lead a totally independent life, when me and Iain are too old to look out for him, who's going to be there for him?
    Sorry to be so maudlin, but stuff like this tortures me

    thanks for sharing that and that is very tough to think about, most of us never have to worry about that so we don't think about that point that often.

    Its something that I try not to think about to be honest. All we can do is just live for the day, otherwise I'd send myself loopy lol
