Sorry to post and run as I have been active lately but I've decided to have a little emotional crisis here and need to take a break. On Friday of this week, assuming I wake up, I will have lived to see one more dawn than my mother did. At the moment, my own mortality is staring me in the face as I count the hours until I'm the age when I made the decision to pull the plug on my mother.

Happy debating.

CLW-come back soon. Although you can be a pill at times, you really spice up the board. Take care and keep us posted. Come Friday, I'll be sending some positive your way.

how sad for you. plz know i will be thinking of you. i think you are on my heels as far as age(im almost 46), so i can relate to you somewhat. although i dont at all feel "old", i do take life a little more differently than i did say fifteen years ago. i still have my parents, but they are definitely old, and i worry about them a lot. i enjoy the spice you add to the board, and hope to see you back soon. take care, you have my prayers.

Oh for crying out loud ... *i*i*i*Happy Birthday Cyndi, and will you get a grip?? I surpassed, by three years already, the age my father was at his death 26 years ago. His 10 day old granddaughter was buried over his heart 19yo ... I bet each of us can whoop @$$ with the tales we can share. (((*)))'s anyway... and sorry if I come off a bit strong, but for crying out loud, I'm 50 and I've no sympathy for anyone wallowing in the age thing.

Not wallowing in the age thing at all. Just dealing with crossing a line my mother didn't live to. Bully on you. Things like death and actually getting to the age a parent died didn't bother you. Well, it is bothering me. Not because I'm old but because someone I loved never lived to see these days. Stuff it where the sun don't shine.

That'll teach me to come back here won't it?

You know, the first time I read this post, I couldn't even respond because I was too angry too, and the darned post isn't even directed to me!

You are WAY out of line here! I didn't get from Cyndi that she was upset about getting older. What I got was that she was upset that her mom is gone, and her mom was gone at such an early age that Cyndi herself will now be older than her mother ever was. That from here on out, Cyndi will experience days her mother never had. Who are you to tell her that she has no right to those feelings? She should "get a grip"? Maybe you need to get a heart! that was totally inappropriate and uncalled for!

I am probably the last person to be a "cyndi-supporter", but this was WAY out of line!
