Aww Venus.xx

I'm sorry. I'm not even sure I knew you'd lost your Dad this past year.

I don't think anyone can realise what it feels like until they lose a parent themselves. The world doesn't feel quite right when a parent is gone.

Thank you for understanding Crois.

I haven't told you guys much about me...I am still an emotional wreck when it comes to talking about my life. Quick story is, I was my parents' carer for a quite a few years: mum had alzheimers and vascular dementia and osteoporosis, and some other things, and dad was just old and frail.

Mum died in 2012, which was intrinsic in getting me here, and dad May 10 last year.
I am not married, and I don't have kids.
It's about me now...rebuilding my life, and finding out who I am.

Depression has been a constant companion for a long time. I do a lot better these days, but not around things like birthdays. So I get quiet...

Awww Venus.xx
Thank you for sharing. It must be quite a journey after going through all that. I'm glad you did spend time with yourself on your birthday, even though it couldn't be in a drinking environment, you showed yourself great love and care by doing that. And that is a step in the right direction.

Dear Venus,
Thank you for sharing such intimate details about your life with us. You are a wonderful person, who is so giving to others, though you suffer so yourself. You are strong and so capable and I admire this very much. I'm sorry about the recent loss of your father, and caring for your mother must have taken so much, physically and emotionally. And you have always been so good to me. I do get it about going quiet. Sometimes we just need to regroup a little.
Thanks for being here.
