    Dude, there's a lot of suffering on this site, I'm trying to make people laugh and enjoy themselves a bit. If I amuse people who read this forum, then I've done a good thing because our lives are difficult enough as it is.

I hope the time you spend in the darkness brings for you as much comfort.
        Oh, yes! I totally understand that. I, too, go into those states where I'm comforted by meditation, I just don't want to do anything else, but travel in my mind.

            Not unusual Patty. It is called the "cocoon syndrome." Really. Check it out. I read about it years ago.

              wazabiker,
              I am glad you are around here cause being about 4 months older than me, you keep me feeling young. lol Since we are both here in SC, maybe we will both end up in the same old folks home!

              I am not a fan of cold weather, thankfully we live where winters not so harsh. However, I am a people person--I crave the company of others so I must get out and about even in the cold.

              I don't mind the dark, but darkness, for me, is for sleeping. I also enjoy some alone time. This is when I am wood carving or scroll sawing, both very theraputic for me.

              I am concerned as to what my life will be, say 10 years from now when I hit 83.

                    I am feeling the years also. Pain is starting to creep in which makes it harder to motivate myself. I keep telling my friend that getting old sucks thought it was suppose to be the "golden" years. blah.

                        When Jim was acutely injured 10 years ago, he was in a coma for months, then slowly started coming back to us in small doses. He had a halo on, teeth wired shut, a resirator and trach, casts on and 4 point restraints on when I wasn't there or nurses weren't working on him. Many a night they would call me back in to sit with him all night if he was agitated. One nurse tied his sheets over his head and left him---I was incensed!!! In my mind it seemed cruel to do this to someone, restrained and struggling to shake off a coma and understand why he couldn't move, open his mouth, etc. I raised hell and they stopped doing it. So now I have to chuckle, because what does Jim do at night? Pulls his covers over his head regularly at night! I found out later that one of his night nurses was fired for stealing drugs from the unit and using at work, maybe that explains some of the agitation....oy!! Deb

                            i'm not comfy if my head isnt covered. i usually bring a blankie with me or my friends just automatically throw one over my head if i am at their house. and i cant sleep without something over my head. been that way since birth. my mom would freak out as i'd pull the blanket over my head as a baby. she'd make my dad watch me at night lol

                                I'm glad you're both here! I turned 58 the day before yesterday and you guys make it feel somewhat young.
