    Escaping the Slough of Despond

    Time for a new thread as my old one was getting a bit long - it also seems timely as Iíve come out of a rough patch. It feels like Iíve escaped the Slough of Despond recently and Iíd be grateful not to have to do that bit of my journey again
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I hope you don't have to too! Lovely new thread, all sparkly and glittery of course!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    Itís not big enough for surgery, whatever that means. Though I know surgery outcomes arenít great anyway. No outcomes are great tbh. Theyíre just going to keep scanning him - heís got an appointment Thursday so they'll know more then hopefully. What makes me angry is he was told this by a letter! AAAís are rarely survivable and they tell him he has this by letter??? Si is ok, I think. Weíve know there was something seriously wrong for a while now so neither of us are surprised, i donít think.

    Apparently my FIL is low, which isnít a surprise. He doesnít want to talk about it. Although Iím normally one to want to talk it out, I donít blame him. Whatís there to talk about? It is what it is

    That's disgusting! I'd be putting in a strong complaint!
    That's a horrible diagnosis. To have that in letter - I'd like to say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Not after the diagnosis my friend got by letter too....

    That's terrible to get a severe diagnosis by letter
