Withdrawal and Happy Endings

I went to see a cherished neighbor of my grandmas.  Her best freind.  She has 2-3 days left and is on Hospice care.  The sight of death once sent me to a mental ward, but as soon as I got upset this time, I went numb.  I dissociated from it and now I can’t cry, which is tough.   This woman was one of the finest people on earth.  I cried a little bit thinking of her meeting my grandpa once she passes on.  I also cry about death because sometimes it feels like death would be a better place than this grimy poisoned earth.  I believe in the here-after tho so going to Gods Mansion sounds nice.  I hate being on meds and not being naturally happy and calm without being tired as hell.  If it weren’t for my family and friends I would will myself to die just to ease this pain and sickness.  I’m tired of running out of meds and ending up institutionalized because of withdrawal. What a sad entry this has turned out to be.  I’m sure I’ll see light later on.  I’ll call my friend Frank, he cracks me up. Here is a Picture of my Grandpa. I  sure did love him .                                                                                                                                                           Dad3 copy

    -You! :)

    I might be doing something crazy and I would not have anything but blind faith that it will work out. The proposed plan is that I quit GoodWill, and begin selling antiques. I have enough to live off of for the summer. But the idea is insane. But I have few options. I think that would be the ultimate test for me... and I need to keep learning about what I can do.

    I think it's ok not to cry. I would rather have contentment than tears at my funeral. I want people to go get an icecream cone... go play with their kids... read a book. Do something that makes a person happy. THAT would be in honor. So my advice is that she peobably doesn't want or need you to cry. She probably wants to see a smile on your face... to see you shine :)

  2. My mom was pretty much blunt her final week of life. She didn't want a funeral,wake,etc. Just a simple memorial death notice, and people to remember the good times with her. That's what I want people to do when I go. Oh, thanks for the comments on my blog too, Val.
