I wish I was close enough to hug you right now. After my dad passed away,which was a huge shock only to get worse when we found out he had a consition that he knew about but kept hidden from everyone, including my mom, literally every time the phone rang I went through an anxiety ridden moment where I wondered if my mom had passed.

My mom lived for another 2 years or so after my dad died but spent about a year of that time, scattered, in a hospital bed. It was a really tough time.

I still hate the sound of a phone ringing.


Sorry to hear that Chris. I really don't have any regrets for what's happened to me in the past because I know that I wouldn't be the person I am today without all that history. I realize that I am constantly thankful for all the good in my life and I'm not sure I would be able to truly appreciate it, had it all just been handed to me without some drama in the mix. The unexpected makes life interesting. I think it's probably too much to ask for it to always be the good kind of unexpected, you know?


Those are really scary things to witness as a child. It's a damn good thing nothing terribly bad has happened and you still have them around. Very strange that of them had aneurysms.

Sort of like what Chris says about the phone. I don't mind the ring, but it's those odd hours calls (late at night, very early in the morning) which freak me out.


You're right Sprizee, we all know that not every piece of new is going to be good. I think if we could figure out a way to maxime how we process the good stuff and be realistic about accepting the bad, then we'd probably get along okay.

I too am grateful for for all the good in my life but I know I don't spend enough time taking stock of it.


Egan, I hate the sound of a ringing phone but I blame that one on working at The Company picking up too many calls for too many years. The only good thing I remember about that place you still work is all the cool people I met there. Oh, and all the awesome customers. Kidding.

Chris, I realize I'm preaching to the choir and that everyone has things in their past that weren't always the most pleasant. Glass half full, right!


Find me a new job stat!
