It really made me reevaluate my life.I mean there are people in this world who have nothing,literally nothing and they struggle on,there are people born blind and deaf and handicap but they don't give up.

I guess my point is that no matter how bad you feel inside,in a dark hole and see no light or way out(and trust me I've been there plenty of times)you have to hold on and fight this.Life really is worth holding on too.

Thanks everyone here for your support.

God bless you all:smile:

Thanks everyone.He has improved,his walking is better and he can talk properly again.He will be out of hospital next week,that's if his walking stays the same.

It's hard for me because on the one hand I hate him for all the abuse he gave me and my mom over the years(verbal abuse)and on the other hand he is my father and I do care about him.

Your doing the right thing Carter. A man might not get along along with his father but maybe he will change his outlook once he realises he needs the care of others.

Either way, your a gentleman for realising your duties and not shirking from them, despite your own struggle. I take my hat off to you sir.

I had someone in the family who cheated on his wife who was very dear to me. Even so when he got old we still got along and forgave him as much as we can.

Also, PollyAnna, your a brave person to make that commitment - its amazing sometimes how even severe depression kind of lifts in time of great crisis - we get a second wind were we'd never have though we could get the energy.

Your an example to us all.
