Soapsuds, I know this is not the right thread to ask you, but what did you think about Lorraine Broderick's tenure on ATWT?

What is that from, Suds? Quite touching.

I get fitted for a hearing aid on Monday. This, the grey hair, the arthritis, the bi-focals, it's all happening at once. What next? I can't handle coffee like I used to, can't sit around and drink with my friends without paying for it the next morning more than they seem to. Sometimes I feel so empty and sore inside, often car sick nausea. I know that's depression. I've observed it on a professional level and it runs in my family.

Maybe I'm just tired of playing host to this stream of incoming / outgoing relatives we have. No real complaints about them, though. I expected much worse. We're on our third group. Each group has been sensitive to the fact that we are both working. Each has bought groceries, cleaned up, been pretty quiet at night and even during the day when I've had to sleep; they've been quiet as mice or gone out to some local event. They've even taken us out to dinner, lunches, breakfast. No family drama. Must be me.

It's actually Paul McCartney's song "Coming Up". I just changed the first sentence by replacing love with friendship. The rest is the song intact.

How old are you TC? My knees have been so bad lately. It must be age. :lol: Depression can be a real bitch. Hang in there TC. There are some of us who do care. Keep us updated.

I'm verrrrry close to 40. Hey, I don't know how old you are but my arthritis started in my knees. I blamed it on hockey and basketball. As for depression, I have a therapist but he's on vacation. I should see the person he left as a sub, just that I've never met her. I'm sort of mandated (work-related) to see a therapist in a situation like this, or at least 6 times a year.

And thanks, Suds. ;)

There you go TC. I love "Daniel" by EJ. Have you heard Wilson Phillips version? That one brings me to tears.

You know I am so sick of posters coming down on me for my posts/opinions. Seriously, its gone overboard. <_<
