First, thank you for the outpouring of support.

Not much to say. She is responding to her name, but not commands. They did a spinal tap-no results yet.They are starting to remove things. My dad wasnít clear on what. She has a breathing tube still.

I am having a tough time. I have my mom sheltering with us and her heath seems to be deteriorating. 😢 This is not how life was supposed to be-45, working a job that sucks and pays crap (worse than teaching!), with my mom being sick all the time, my sister dying in a hospital two hours away and trying to explain to a soon to be 4 year old why he canít go anywhere. It said that G-d doesnít give you more than you can handle, but I am seriously having my doubts.😡

I'm so sorry. You have a heavy load. But also remember you have a beautiful and vibrant son. You're his whole world (especially right now!) I'm glad your mom can be with you, but it's a challenge to be her caretaker.

Thinking of you and your family during these difficult days. You have a lot on your plate. I know I'm overwhelmed with life right now and I have nothing like you do.

Please be gentle on yourself and know that your PT family is lifting your family up in prayers.

I am so sorry. This is an extremely difficult time for you and your family--and for so many.

Would it help to reshape that old saying? I do not believe that G-d is giving us these hardships and sorrows. I believe that G-d loves us, both you and me, and will help us through whatever comes. However difficult our lives may be G-d continues to care.

Perhaps this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leAh...eid=354da2b178 might help you. It's based on Psalms and lament.

Give into it all for a bit. Scream, cry, pound the walls, the whole shebang. Let your son know you plan to do this or wait til he goes to bed. Please donít let it build up. Of course it wonít change anything, but you will get some release.

I am so sorry you are getting dumped on by life. Hold on, keep praying, and hug that boy of yours.

You have so much going on right now, and you're doing it so valiantly! But I agree with Keltikmom, it's okay to let some steam off from time to time...
I'm keeping you, Rebecca and your family in my thoughts, and sending lots of positive vibes

As for that verse, it is referring to temptation, not life miseries.

May God's peace be with you.

Just getting it out helped a bit. I just need Rlyndecker to get better. Pretty sure this is the longest we have gone without talking and that is saying a lot since I studied in England for a semester when it was expensive to call.

That is a lot on your plate. My mantra is you have to feel what you feel. The next day or week, you might feel better. It will be a roller coaster. Leaning on others and talking helps...and crying and maybe journaling. Hugs to you and your family.
