I Love SP Support!

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

You guys are great! My visit with my difficult brother is going well, so far. We take him to the airport this afternoon, so it is almost over. The encouragement and suggestions you all have made have made all the difference in the world for me.

My cousin, Mary, has been understanding about it. We have gotten some moments together and will have a few hours this evening once brother J is gone. Hooray.

Sometimes you are embarrassed to be related to a person, but others usually understand, because they probably have someone in their family that they aren't so proud of, either. I'm going to get through this. Thanks for the help, my friends.

    I join the throng of your friends who have been hoping and praying that things go well on your visit. I'm glad things are going well. I think it helps to have planned out various scenarios, just in case. Congratulations on coping well with your brother and I'm sure you will have a lovely visit with your cousin. Safe home.

    Listen, you don't get to pick your family - we ALL have someone we'd rather not be related to!

    We all have relatives that we'd rather forget. It is inevitable in families. It is a strain for all involved. As long as you can be civil to each other visits can go reasonbly well. Enjoy the time left to visit with other folks. emoticon

    You're great. I've found that since I've cleaned up my eating I'm more centered and not nearly as reactive to slings and arrows shot by others. Glad your visit is going so well.

    I'm glad your visit went pretty well with your brother. Sounds like it may have been better than expected.
