    Trying to stay positive.

    OK I know I'm new here to this site, but I'm not a New to this lifestyle. I need to vent after my days events. I took time off from working out for quite some time to focus on work and family. Bought and sold a house last father in the meantime and just started getting to a point where I felt like getting back to my normal routine. I know I'll never have more than I can handle in life but that doesn't mean things won't ever be hard. For instance today, I got a call from a family member telling me and my mother had a stroke and I rushed to the hospital. Over the past three years most of my immediate family some friends and some former clients( i'm a social worker for at risk youth) , Even through Covid things seemed to settle. But you never know what's going to happen at any given moment.

    again I know you all don't know me but I appreciate the ability to talk it out with a community of people I've always considered myself a part of. If you read this thank you for this I thank you for listening. Staying positive...!!!!!

    Man, really sorry to hear this. So it sounds like you recently lost your dad, and your mom had a stroke today? Just want to make sure I'm reading that right.

    Yeah. That's correct. I apologize when I use dictation things don't always come out the way I'm seeing them. Appreciate that. Honestly I just needed to vent, truly I'm not the sympathy seeking type. Things could be way worse, and I see it daily with my clientele so I feel guilty even venting. Thanks for listening though I do appreciate it

    No I get it. That's a big deal. Losing my dad was the most difficult things I have dealt with in life.

    I would think having a scare like that with a mother shortly afterwards would bring up a lot of stuff. Hang in there man. Things will settle down some. Reach out when you need someone to talk to.

    Just being able to vent can help sometimes and we're here to help. Sorry to hear the rough patch you're currently in.
    There are 2 kinds of pain in life... The pain of discipline and the pain of regret. Your choice...

    not the same person anymore. But time will tell I hear. Things won't be like they were before this but hopefully she can improve to a reasonable state. Thanks for asking. I'm hoping the rest of us can rebound after all the losses we had just within the past three years. I'm really glad I stumbled upon you guys, just by accident. Being so wrapped up with work and the older you get a small to non existent social life, it's nice to have someone to just shoot the shit with. I thank everyone here for that.
