Teacake Posted November 24, 2004 Share Posted November 24, 2004 Good Morning, LCSC Family; Came on the boards this morning to check in and see how folks are doing. Didn't realize that I was drawn here for several reasons until I read several posts including Dean Carl's and Karen's and Cindy Oh's. 1) Terry (TBone) came out of a recovery program 1 yr ago this week. He was undiagnosed at this point. That happened Christmas Eve. 2) Yesterday was Ann's birthday (Terry's wife). 3) Tomorrow is their anniversary. 4) Daddy died 30 years ago today from lung cancer. 5) Terry and I had some very rough times his last year with us and I'm not dealing with that very well. As TeeTaa said in an earlier post, I'm running away. Dean, thanks so much for your words of wisdom. Terry missed his 1 year anniversary by 19 days but did receive his AA chip from the representatives from the recovery program that participated in his funeral. Karen, Terry lashed out at me and I don't know that I'll ever get beyond it. Also, I can remember Mama saying that when Daddy was sick he told her that if she had cooked him a green vegetable he wouldn't have gotten cancer. (Now, you gotta understand, this woman COOKED for Daddy and us. Full meals. In earlier days, Daddy was home only every other weekend or so due to his job and would get home sometimes 2:00-3:00 in the morning and she would either warm supper up 'cause she had expected him earlier or would cook a full breakfast. So I don't think the vegetables were the culprits. Could have had something to do with the 2 packs of Camels a day he smoked for about 30 years.) Cindy, I'm so sorry about your sisters. I cannot imagine being in this world and not having mine plus another brother to depend on. I encourage you to try to talk to them. They probably need you as much as you need them. Everybody, thanks so much for being here today. I know I've only posted frivolous stuff in the recent past but that is just how I deal with things. But believe that I care deeply for each and everyone of you. I'm going home now, down to Mama's, gonna give a few hugs. And gonna make those nieces and nephews (teenagers) hug me back. They will appreciate that some day..... Have a great Turkey Day. Get as stuffed as the bird. Fran (aka Teacake) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
