I have to say goodbye to my family...all branches and all directions....I have to say "goodbye," as they have said it to me so many years ago.

Its not easy realizing alone I truly am. Its actually a nightmare come-true.

Sometimes you really have no choice. And sometimes one alternative is no better than another.

Do whatever you have to do. I am sure that by this time you have tried everything else.

But I know that is a hard cold place to be. No words will change that.

There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. - Hamlet, Act 5, sc 2

Sorry to hear that. Having my mom chose my step father who abused me over me has been very hard. I pretty much have no contact with her. She won't accept me unless I accept him and I'm NOT going to do that EVER! Alright, never is a long time, but I'm not going to accept him right now and because of that she wants nothing to do with me.

If it's what you need to do I hope you find comfort in it at some point. Take care of yourself because you are worth it!

Since being at MS I have wondered if I would ever feel alone again. I wish I had more friends to hang out with that understood me, but the deep intense feelings of aloneness aren't there anymore. There are just too many people here that care about me and want to support me so I may never feel really alone again.

I'll stand with you.


"Me too" - I don't think I will ever get tired of saying or hearing these two words.

Hey Rob,
I'm very saddened to hear that you have come to this realization. Being honest, I certainly hope that this doesn't include your kids. But you have to do what is right for both you and them and I know if it does you have thought about that. I know your hurting and I hope, I could do something for you but I don't think I can. I also hope that my recent post havent made this any worse for you as I now know its a major trigger for you.

"and i don't want the world to see me, cause i don't think that they'd understand"
