March 27, 2009

Yesterday was the year anniversary of the rupture of my fallopian tube due to ectopic pregnancy.

The year anniversary of my mentor’s death is also coming up soon.

I’m still struggling with monumental life confusion and guilt.

I’m still getting massive hive attacks.

Other than that, I’m great.

    Prayers and the love of your friends for you.

    You ARE great. And one of these days, you ARE going to find a life that fits you.

    And when that day comes, I’m going to come up there and we are going to drink the biggest damned pitcher of margaritas you ever saw and celebrate our asses off. 🙂

    Until then, I am going to keep praying for you and sending you lots of love through the ether…

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Elizabeth. I truly hope that things improve. We all seem to have to go through these rough spots and they are never fun, and seem to be at times overwhelming. You will get through it. Just hold tight to those who love you. Blessings.

    Dang, sorry Eileen, I misspelt or miswrote, or whatever….forgive my insensitivity, lol…

    Can’t wait for the party. Wish we could all get together, fix your life and schedule the celebration. It will happen. You know you are always welcome to call. Hugs.

    Thanks All…I’m just having a feel sorry for myself day I guess.

    The hugs are appreciated.

    It’s okay to feel crappy about all this. I mean, it’s all crappy, even if it leads to “learning experiences” (which is code for “hurts like hell”).

    I agree with Doxy though. You *will* get through this. One step at a time. Any step will do. It will lead to the others.

    Love and calamine lotion,
    Jane (and +Maya, who says “Go where the care is good!”)

    +Maya is wise.

    Just make sure you have enough pitchers of margies for all of us.

    The problem with all the dark valleys in our lives is that we still have to walk THROUGH them to get to the other side. But my experience is things work out…just very slowly and with a lot of pain and the feeling of being cast in the desert without a map.

    Just be aware, and whatever all else, stay safe.

    I think about you so often and am praying that things will soon fall together for you.

    Jane is, indeed, a wise woman.

    (BTW, Jane, my mom is reading your book and enjoying it, taking it slowly).

    I’m visiting Seattle for work and am staying a couple extra days to visit with my mom in the assisted living facility where she now resides. Came close to seeing Dennis, as well, but he’s having car problems. But he said he’d try to organize a get together in NYC again this fall. We can party or pre-party then and many us would gladly come for a special just for Eileen party someday as well.

    But for now… I know this must be a tough one-year anniversary for you. Desert time, indeed.

    Love and prayers,

    Lots of hugs, (((Eileen)))

    What Doxy said and another passel of love from my corner! I don’t comment often but I remember you a lot.

    I’m glad you updated us, even if I wish your news was better. You’re in my prayers regularly, (((Eileen))).

    ((((Eileen))))) Crappy days come, and crappy days go, then they seem to come back again! What’s up with that?

  15. March 29, 2009 12:25 am

    Keep breathing. Just keep breathing.

    Praying for you, hun.

    ((((Eileen)))) Mostly-lurker delurking to send some support. Have you heard the acronym AFGE? Means “Another Effing Growth Experience.” Wildernesses truly are miserable. But everyone who’s posted here loves you and is with you.

    Snap out of it, woman! Or do I have to come over there and slap you round the face until you do? Worse things happen at sea. Think positive thoughts. Exercise is good for depression. There are people far worse off than you, you know. What you need is a hobby. But, above all, suppress your feelings and accept Jesus as your personal saviour. It takes 50 zillion muscles to frown but only one to smile. Think of a place where you were safe and happy. Buy lots of New Age CDs. Drink yourself into oblivion.

    Did any of that help?

    Thank you was a tough week, but as Dr. Mad Priest says…things could be worse, and are lots worse for some others. This I know well.

    All your prayers help me much.
