6. Thanks, guys for the responses.


Mom continues on the downward trend. Staff said that what is likely to happen will be a "cascade" of organ failure. She is now getting morphine by mouth. That is probably the beginning of the end but it is not the same as the morphine "drip" which will end her life in a matter of days.

Peggy posted what I needed to read. I have been feeling down for the past three years after I lost Joyce to cancer. I have friends but I would feel badly bringing up my sorrows with them and bringing a raincloud over their heads. It is not fun being with someone who is always down so I avoid talking to people about my sad feelings.

D.U. is close enough but yet far enough that I can post my problems and feelings here and know that nobody is going to take "go down" with negative feelings because of what I post.

Thanks, guys.
