Two days ago I posted under the “How are you doing” thread, which has gotten buried under the other threads. It was to let everyone know that I wasn’t doing well and would be stepping away temporarily to focus on my mental health. It has been brought to my attention that it could upset some people and I was made to feel that I was not wanted on this site anymore. That person knows who she is. I have always thought I gave good advice and my presence helped people but apparently I was mistaken. I appreciate all the help I’ve received along the way on this forum. If I’m mistaken in these feelings, that person could answer my PM and see how I feel. But not the case so I will be stepping away permanently. There is no worse feeling in the world to feel that you and your contributions are not welcomed. God bless you all 😥

Hi, I am very sorry to hear about your experiences and feel the need to step away.  I have done so myself over the last 2 years.  I would keep my options open because you may feel differently or realize that person does not have the power over you to make life decisions.  My biggest challenge and there have been many has been how to process all the interactions I have had.  Some good, some temporary, some indefensible, and more.  It is hard to except when one is grieving.  I have learned that just because someone lost a loved one does not make them empathetic or caring person.  In fact, I have met many hostile and bitter widows.  That was a great blow to me at my most vulnerable time.  Live your life the way you want and remember you have already made a difference to us on this site.  Please reconsider about dropping out permanently.  We need and want you to be part of our lives.  Your friend, Sue

Beatle you do what is best for Beatle.  YOU have been a loving, caring, very helpful friend to us all.  Sad that there are those in society filled with HATE.  How sad and lonely it must be for these people.  Glad that I have nothing to do with them.  We are here to help each other through one of the most difficult times in our lives and the majority of people on this site have done just that.  Sharing, Caring, Loving people.  We are all going through major changes in our lives, some very new and frightening for us BUT we walk through these challenges together.  As long as there are people like you in this world, I know there is hope.  Take care of yourself.  YOU have nothing to feel bad about.  YOU my dear are the one we love and will miss.  ❤️  You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

@BeatleloverKT There are times when we must focus our energy inward to take care of ourselves. You know best what you need right now so of course I support your decision. Your presence and contributions have been beneficial and will be welcomed once again when you are ready to send your energy outward.

 

Sending healing thoughts and comfort.

Nicole @NicoleRetired2020FL , I had to set up a temporary kitchen in my guest room during my renovation. That meant my Keurig was on a table next to my bed. That is the closest I could come to having a butler. Maybe it would work for you! 🤪

Hi Marcy.  Are you close to the end of your renovation?  I am contemplating re-doing the bathroom in the master bedroom before I put the house on the market.  To be honest, I am really afraid to begin that adventure.  Any helpful hints?

I would say I'm about 75% done with my project. I think you are justified in being afraid to begin a renovation before selling and with other issues that you have going on. You never know what problems they will find when they rip something out. It's just like it is on those HGTV shows! In addition, when they are working, you lose your personal space and your house becomes a kind of obstacle course. Then there is the unknown of when the workers are going to show up. I'm only doing mine because I plan to stay here. If I was moving, I would leave it for the prospective buyer to do the way they want it.

 

I don't know if that was the kind of helpful you were looking for but it is what I can say from my experience.

Evening all, I got back from Ohio for my wife's memorial last Saturday. It both sad and uplifting at the same time.  My family got through it and my kids delivered some very special comments about their Mom.  We did not share our comments prior, but the words nurturing, strong, funny, bold, loving and caring came out in all of our comments.  It was a needed step for us to move forward.  One special item was my son (youngest at 28) found a memory box with note cards for the guests to write down their favorite memory of my wife.  Later that evening, after the event was over, my family was sitting outside relaxing and we took turns reading from the stack as we passed the cards around.  It was so touching and special. I suggest that you all try it at a memorial too.

So up next for my journey is a few birthdays and the holidays.  I'll be ready...

Take care y'all, Bill

Bill @BillH490171 , This sounds beautiful! Our family read all of the Email and social media tributes to my husband after his celebration of life service. It is very special to hear about the happy times your loved one had and how they touched other people's lives.

Marcy, thanks for the response and it is special.  Reflections on how our spouses impacted others beyond our immediate family is precious.

Have a great weekend, Bill

I'm sorry about your allergies Nicole

Yes, I know lots with allergies. I believe they have allergy shots now that work good. Expensive. But if people have Medicare, probably can do. Also those over 55 should get Shingles vaccine. You get one. Then six months later another one. Medicare again should cover it. 

 

I never got a reaction from flu shot before. Must be old age thing. lol.

Nicole @NicoleRetired2020FL. Can't you just get the flu shot at a pharmacy or Publix with your Medicare? Do you think it might be risky to skip it?

 

Interesting about the pneumonia vaccine. I just got one last Friday and the pharmacist told me I was done and wouldn't need anything further.

 

I acquired allergies in adulthood and they aren't fun. I did the shots years ago. My allergies took a hiatus during the pandemic and so far I've been managing by taking an antihistamine at night. I hope you find something that gives you some relief!

So glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself.  Still waiting on tests results.  They said some would require more time to translate, so I will be patient.  I am using the walker and that is helping to alleviate the pain on the side I injured in the fall.  My grandson came to visit and is returning to college this weekend.  He made my day for me.  Allergies are REALLY bad this year.  I guess it is due to all the rain.  Sleep tight.🛏💤
