“Yes I have learned that there is always one in the group of offspring who is 'the one' caring for aging parents and though it can be overwhelming, you are a better person for doing that. I did get frustrated,don't get me wrong, but I knew that after all was said and done, that I was close to my mom and loved her and took care of her needs and told her I loved her every single day so I have no regrets, and I think my siblings do. They have to make peace with themselves in whatever way they can. I know what you are saying when you say your brother is 'too busy' I have four siblings, all which live far away, but I actually have a sister that is close-by but might as well be far away because she was never 'available' and was 'always too sick' herself. I mean I know she has mental illness and such, but she always managed to do things on her own time. When mom was dying from a brain cancer) I called numerous times and she was not in sight, but a week after she died, she was knocking on my door, inquiring about her assets! My mom was a simple person and didn't have any and I thought it was pretty disgusting but I just keep praying and know that I did and am doing the right thing. You are too and God Bless you”

“Thank you for your condolences. It's very rough. That is sad but very good that you are cherishing every moment and every phone call and I am sorry that your mom is very sick. My siblings live far and didn't visit often and I think it's hitting them now that they will never be able to make another phone call again or plan another visit. I think alot of people take for granted that their parents are there but once they are gone, they are gone. It's a finality that still leaves me breathless. I am praying for your mom”

“Thank you.  I know what you're saying.  My brother lives close but he's "busy".  I think it's sad.  It's very difficult, as you know, taking care of our parents.  I pray for patience because I feel guilty sometimes because I don't get my things done and get impatient with my mom.  I'm ashamed of that.  Thank you for your kind words and I will think of you often when I become frustrated.”

“of course guys can go shopping with their moms..this article isn't saying they can't. It's just when another woman goes shopping with another woman, you know the styles because you are the same sex. I am sure your mom would give you honest input but let's face it, i am sure your dad knew better about the best hand tool or cargo pants than your mom and I am not being sexist”

“I miss my mom. She died 10 months ago and she was my everything. We went shopping together, spoke on the phone for at least three hours and enjoyed each other's company. I am crushed by her death. I am thankful I didn't move far away and stayed in the same town I grew up and was able to spend all holidays and birthdays with her and watch her take her last breath. I chose to come back to my hometown after college, whereas my siblings moved away. I lost my breath too when I watched my mom take her last one. I miss my mom talking to me giving me honest input and laughing at certain styles. I loved her honesty and consistency. Cherish those moments with your mom, as it's better than the dead silence I am experiencing now.”

“My mom died 10 months ago and she was my world. I went shopping with her, spoke to her for three or four hours a day and spent every single holiday and birthday with her. I am thankful that I didnt' move far away from her like my siblings did and was able to watch her take her last breath. I lost my breath too at that moment. I miss going shopping with my mom, among the many, many other things. Cherish those moments with mom, even when she is criticizing you because she is being honest and speaking her mind. It's better than dead silence like I am experiencing now.”

Generation Why: Dating ... With Cancer

Generation Why: Dating ... With Cancer

Commented Dec 4, 2012 at 18:15:40 in Healthy Living

“It is very tough dating with cancer and you are young, under 30. I had cervical cancer at age 21 and it was very awkward. Getting surgery and not having sex and then being sterile..geez..not the most opening conversation at the frat party. I went through rigorous treatments and didn't date for a whole year and then found a guy and wanted to marry him but him not me..I was devastated but moved on eventually. How hard it was to explain to any guy after that who I was getting serious with that I couldn't have children..for some guys it was a deal-breaker and they were nice guys..I got cervical cancer again at age 38 and was in a committed relationship and with the same guy..we are older and don't want children anyway so that is good but he didn't understand treatments, etc and diagnosis and is still learning and is still with me today. The past 20 years were torture.”

Kelly Carroll on Dec 5, 2012 at 16:35:57

“I have a uterine disease, so I was very up front with the man who is now my husband, and told him we'd probably never have kids.

Now, the biggest issue is trying to get doctors to agree to remove my uterus so I can operate like a normal person, instead of a zombie half the time. They are afraid to make me sterile. I'm deathly afraid of getting pregnant, and even more afraid of being sick for the next 10 years. They think I should force a pregnancy, just to have kids like a 'normal' person, even though the pregnancy is likely to fail. It is one of the worst, most emotionally painful things I've ever gone through. Thankfully, my husband backs me up. I know that being single would make this even harder.

Courage to all women and men going through cancer or sickness!”

“Anyone that feels inferior or has some twisted mental problem can use gaslighting. Many people have called them crazy and they are so ostracized from society because they are weird, that they use gaslighting as a form of sick control. My ex boyfriend used to do that and he had severe mental problems,coupled with drug abuse. It was exhausting trying to have a conversation. I have a sister with severe mental problems and she tries to gaslight me too but I am too smart to agree with the twisted lies. My mom died and I am the executor of her estate and I already told her I have a lawyer. She couldn't care less about our mother and never said good-bye when mom was in a coma just before she died now she is sweating me for assets..which there are none! She hired a lawyer to investigate the case and told the lawyer I didn't have one..gaslighting number one..who knows what other lies. I told her lawyer I will have no contact with her and she can call my lawyer or Probate. I am not playing and gaslighting is very harmful in this case.”

Mitt Romney: Obama Won With 'Gifts' To Blacks, Hispanics, Young Voters

Commented Nov 16, 2012 at 06:40:25 in Politics

“What a sore loser. Obama won because of his character and knowledge, and he didn't need to bribe anyone with 'gift's to black and latino community. That's a pretty strong statement for Romney to make wtih no proof. Do you have any hard core proof that Obama gave gifts? If not, then shut your mouth. It's pretty disgusting how this country was always run by white males, who probably gifted many people and it was acceptable and I am not saying Obama did either, but if he did what's the difference? Oh I see..because he is a BLACK man. Geez America get over it. History was made the first time Obama was elected and now history is made again because a BLACK man is elected twice in a row. I see that as progress. Obama is a smart man and if you are going to make history of being a first, then what better man and family to represent that? I am proud that I am a part of this history.”

“@edford456 - your comment is heartless how the I survived thing is old...you would not be my friend if we met in person..you sound bitter but that is your problem..I have seen too many of my friends and family die from cancer..including my mother who died from brain cancer a month and half ago, to not know enough to praise when someone is a survivor. Having surgery and/or getting chemo and radiation is such a crapshoot that anyone that survives should sing from the mountaintops and praise God...because every moment should be celebrated because just because you survived this round, doesn't mean it won't come back or that you won't beat it next round.”

“If you never had cancer, then be quiet. The battle is never over..even after successful surgery or scans, etc because when you have it once, the chances of it coming back and more aggressive are even higher. It never gets old. Once you are told you have cancer, you look at things differently. I am twice surivor and it NEVER gets old. After the second diagnosis, I am woozy on the operating table and after the surgery and the doctor comes in and says the surgery was successful but that doesn't mean it won't come back. Everyday is a miracle and I never take anything for granted.”

“That's a great idea to live next door to your hubby..I think when I get married that will be the case. I have no energy or time to spend screaming at someone when they won't really change when I have my own stresses to tend to. My boyfriend has changed somewhat in the past two years we have been dating, but I have a feeling if we lived together after we get married, that he will become relaxed and revert back to his old ways.

My boyfriend can't stand that I leave the lights on, but he does think my lava lamps are hot...the dishes used to pile in his sink and stink and have old crusted food on them. Now when I come over, the sink is always clean..yay! If he wants to shave while he is at my place, he always politely asks and then when he is done, he cleans it up, sink, floor etc etc. I hated that his white comforter was always slightly brown but now he cleans it more. Hey, this took two years and is a work in progress but there is hope..but the toilet paper thing is still an issue..that is why I always bring extra tissues or napkins with me when I go over his place because you never know!”

“I truly believe this doctor saw heaven and that it was exactly as described. How many people can say they have experienced the afterlife and wake up successfully? We can only know from other accounts from the lucky survivors. If you read anyone's accont of the afterlife, it's basically described the same, so there has to be truth to it. And all these people that describe it all don't know each other so there is no conspiracy. I am a Christian and I truly believe that the afterlife is beautiful and loving and very peaceful. My mom was a beautiful person who died from brain cancer a month ago. She was in so much pain and in a coma for two weeks, and that when she took her last breath, she looked so peaceful and loved, like the angels took her and she was released.”
