Christina, you know that I am on the side of getting people better, cheaper, and more comprehensive healthcare. I will keep pushing for that, for people like you. Hugs


Wild Coyote, I'm sorry to read that your aunt is so ill. Sending my best to her and to you and your family!


Thank you for all you do

I told my sis that makes me cautiously optimistic. She agreed. He can be quite fickle, so it's possible that decision will change as the day for the transfer nears. The psychologist said they are still trying to secure a bed at the alcohol rehab. She said that if they cannot get the bed right away that they do NOT want him to return home. They would rather find him space in a temporary assisted living facility. [People, places, and things are a real issue, so going home now is risky.]


I do want to add that Dad looks and sounds better after all these weeks, but it's up to him to stay that way.


Great news !!! Yes he needs to go anywhere but Home right now !!

I told my sister that we have to clear some clutter in his house. Sis says she'll work on Dad's paperwork. We NEED my brother to clear his crap out of the dining room. I'll work a bit on cleaning things like the inside of his refrigerator, microwave, and things like that that a cleaning person wouldn't touch. I told my sister and brother that if my father continues to be serious about recovery, I will pay for a deep super cleaning of his house by professional house cleaners. I will also pay for a professional outfit to come and super clean all of his rugs. I told my sister that the house must look different when Dad eventually goes home. I want to go to a place like Marshall's and buy some inexpensive things that will help make a difference, like new place mats, new bathroom stuff, a new blanket for the sofa, and the like. I will even create a beautiful flower arrangement for his dining room table, and make some goodies for his eventual return home. I'd like my siblings to help pay for the Marshall's type stuff. I want my brother, who lives with my Dad, to make more of an effort not to clutter things. Ideally, I'd like my brother to clean up some of the junk that's in my dad's backyard. It's starting to look like Sanford & Son's junkyard.


The social worker said that my father has agreed not to drive for a while after he returns home. He won't renew his lease on his Mercedes. That still leaves him with the truck, but I told my sister we should ask to hold his keys for him. He has another car that's on stilts (or whatever). I think my brother should finally do something with it, or get rid of it, with Dad's permission.


My brother is a large part of the problem in terms of mess. My sister and I need to figure out how best to work with him. By the way, I don't intend to pay the cleaning people to clean my brother's room. If he wants that, he needs to chip in a little money on it. I doubt it!


I am being a bit aggressive about the cleanliness of my father's house. I have the cleanest house in my immediate family. Before my brother moved in with my father, and my father became ill, Dad's house wasn't that bad at all.


Ahhh great news !!!

Otherwise quiet as usual.


Hope all who are struggling get what they need. Love to everyone!


Thatís so awesome!! Very exciting

@BirdDancer: I think it's perfectly fine to be a bit aggressive on occasion. As women we're socialized to be "nice" all the time and it's just not healthy. Thanks for your support about the disappointment over the party. Probably not such a big problem compared to what some are dealing with.

I went to my OA group and really enjoyed it! I am still overwhelmed by the social aspect of it after being so reclusive most of the past five years. To me, it seems like a very tame party with seven people i don't know at all. It's hard to focus on the message but i get more and more of it each time i go. Taking the bus was fine. It was just the Ride From Hell the other day and still being so raw. I can make the bus work for me. A woman from the Monday group left me a chatty voicemail asking how i was and i was so happy to get it as i REALLY LIKE her and i haven't had a personal call in ages.

Really feeling good and just hoping it doesn't escalate into euphoric mania again as i seem to be laughing and laughing a lot these past few days. Calm at the moment. I just seem to be at the mercy of what ever serotonin and dopamine my brain is dumping out. With the decrease in Seroquel my feelings are really getting in touch with me!
