YES! you & i went through the same flower-child teen years. also contributing it to being the nice person i believe i am. AND...(and this will blow you away), i played guitar as a teen. it wasnt f's thing ("i'm too tired, too busy to listen). yet, he bought me a guitar about 3 years ago, and i am an awesome singer too! when i went to bz, i actually emailed barefoot skinny, and his drummer friend, dale the whale, loaned me a guitar his FATHER MADE for 4 days, then i returned it. playing on the beach, just for me, was AMAZING!

i was born 1963, how 'bout you? i had my kids with as much drugs as they would allow me, tho. (a side line for deadheads?!)

anyway, fool i may be, i am trying to hold thing together with the marriage. we have 2 young kids.

just wish me luck, but i am prepared & strong, for whatever the outcome may be.

thanks for taking the time to tell me you understand. it is so special to know you are not alone in your feelings, and that even strangers understand how one can lose themselves in the course of trying to please another.

best to you, amd maybe we will meet someday.

Jane, glad to see you sitting up taking nourishment. You are strong and a winner.
You know how I feel, by my private emails.
Play that guitar girl and sing daily.

I'm a bit older and have been smile through much of the same. My only advice is to hope you can put up with yourself.,..and your own decisions...that's all you have to live with.

Hiya Jane! I'm a '65 model. Got a bday comming up in a little over a month. I have 3 boys 15, 12 and 8. We got to get together and jam! Your in Pa right? Im in Va. Im dying to hook up with some folks and jam. Its very strange being by myself after being with someone for so long. I was with my husband for 11 years and with my sig. other for 10. Truth be known this is the longest Ive lived by myself ever, and probably the longest that Ive gone without a man around and its only been a little over a month. Sometimes its good sometimes its not so good. I find that when my brain starts to go overtime I can stop the negative thought progression by playing music. Wish I hadnt laid it down all those years, but thank goodness its still here for me. Cant think of nothing else but the song Im playing when Im playing. So Im playing ALOT lol. I play mostly folky hippy dippy tunes some Dead of course, Buffett, Simon & Garfunkle and my new kick is Nickle Creek. Im hunting some bluegrass pickers so I can learn more of that style. I play by ear, cant read a lick of music. I got me some super callouses right about now. I agree its very nice to know that others can empathize with a particular situation. Its a rocky road but I sense light at the end of the tunnel.

you're in Va? I'm in GA. Your story sounds so much like can be very lonely sometimes. I'm just a bit shy when it comes to talking about personal stuff, but I would like to be able to talk with someone. (Anyone else out there with patience?) Hey, I'm on this board pretty often....

Hi Grace,
It surely would be nice if there was a chat function we could all utilize. Email me I aint got no problem spilling my guts anymore cause keeping quiet about it all is what got me so screwed up in the first place! Im a great listener too!

yep. i've been outta my house like 3 weeks now, spent 10 days alone, toughest time of my life, and longest we had been apart in 20 years. just like you, i played so much i had blisters, sang until i was horse. then came to help my mom with my very ill dad. we finally decided to put him in a facility. made the calls, and told him. he's only 65. great timing, huh?

i am determined to get thru this...that which does not kill me will make me stronger.

wink to chloe. and thanks.

toad, i'm pissed you arent writing me. i am checking my e-mail daily, now that i straightened dad's pc all out (oh what a man with a brain disorder can do to a computer! thank goodness i'm not just a pretty face). write me, a-hole.

i'll try to send marty a pic of me in my little dress! happy new year, it's gotta get better.

so, we are as one. thanks again, marty.

Hi SweetJane. Sorry you are in such a challenging situation. A couple of years ago, I left my man of thirteen years. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Yet, relatively speaking, it wasn't as hard because we didn't have children.

On the other hand, my parents divorced when i was in middle school. My mom says now she would not have done it, had she know the affect it would have on us kids. But i'm not sure how happy that would have made her.

So, for whatever it's worth, I wish you strength, happiness and love this new year.
