    Sorry for your siituation. Family and co-workers are the most difficult people to understand, IMO. I appreciate you sharing what you did on this board.

    For as much as I can gather, you seem like a good man. Over the years I have learned your a good dad, a fine significant other to your wife, and a dedicated teacher. Just be the best "you" that you can be & take comfort in knowing that you are doing the best you can.

    Thanks Ozzy! You know how to make a guy feel like he's not such a bad guy.

    I do try. I am very blessed, but live in an imperfect world.

    Hey DJ - I can't offer too much help, going through some family things myself about now, not sure I'm one to give advice to anyone.

    The only thing I can think of is I truly believe that all this we go through is nothing compared to the love of God* for eternity. We may not understand things, or think they're fair, but that's just a problem with our perspective. In the meantime, all we can really do is choose to spread love, or not.

    It sounds like the people on this board who know you best think you're doing a good job of doing that. To the greatest degree, we can only try to control ourselves, and after a certain point we can't control anything/anyone else. So, at least from this vantage point, it sounds like you are doing the best thing possible. So hang in there, dude.

    Yes, brother. Thanks.

    I hate to admit it, but this cycle of strange, ignore, pretend, has become expected by me.

    Strange. I just want to be in a family unit.

    On another note, I spoke to my brother yesterday for the first time in over 11 years. It went well. Nothing of great substance, but it happened, so I'm pleased.

    I keep trying!!
