I wonder that your post has absolutely worn me out within wondering, dear (((wish)))

And interesting to note, I wondered about Lonely1 in the other thread - the one about where is everyone... because I haven't seen any posts from him for a long time.

I wonder where is the proper place to bring up the loss of a forum member? At the risk of worrying someone by asking this... and perhaps risking breaking a forum rule - this is what I would post if there was a proper place to post this...

although many of you haven't been to braintalk in a while, some of you may have read posts or interacted with one of our members named "Ponygirl" or "giggles". her name was phyllis and she was 45 yrs. old and had spina bifida. she passed away on october 2nd of this year. there is a link to a memorial page for her on braintalk, in the epilepsy forum in a thread started by mike weins. for those of you that knew her, i hope you will take a look.
I wonder.. if (((Phyllis))) is at peace ... she lived a challenged life and frequented the chats/forums at both Braintalk and Neurotalk... I think she's "been around" as long as I have.... not sure.
I am grateful for the lessons she taught me. rip

I wonder if you all know, in your own way, each of you has taught me a lesson or two!! or five.... ok, maybe even six!!

Heart Phyllis

I'm so very sad to hear of her passing.

I always worried so much about Phyllis and tried so much to comfort her on many occasions, however, I think once or twice I was a little hard on her.

I honestly didn't mean to be. I was just trying to help without really knowing or understanding her situation I guess.

The internet is bad for that. Words get misconstrued and don't come out with the softness that was meant when it's in black and white on a computer screen.

Thank you very much Addy for letting me know. Sad news indeed.

Yes

Me too

I wonder if anyone else here is thankful for music? My very good friend that is moving away next week made me a collection of his favorite cds and music really helps you feel understood, if that makes sense.
Makes sense. That is a special friend.
Music plays a large part in my life. As you get older it becomes a special sense in a way. Music can conjure up memories long forgotten.

Then again I hear music in nature too. I just wish I had more nature to hear music in. lol !

Quote:
I wonder if I can say I am the most thankful for friends. You can't choose family but you sure can choose friends. ANd I am becoming even more better at doing so, the older I get.
Oh yes. I totally relate to that.

Quote:
I wonder if anyone else has a history of picking horrible friends? Of being taken advantage of because you are not assertive enough?
Yes. I actually did a couple of assertive training courses because of this. I tend to be taken advantage of very easity. Not so much this past decade, but all the decades before that I was. I guess I just tend to look for the good things in people and don't necessarily notice their motives if they have them. I've been burned.


Quote:
I wonder if you all know I have been studying introversion/extroversion lately.
Jung? I vaguely remember you studying Jung some years back. You've probably moved on. Me too. LOL for decades.

Quote:
I wonder if you all know I was asked last night, would you see a mechanic with a broken car? I don't think I am broken.... but..... I have been. Don't you want to see someone who has had a broken car at one time or another? Or someone who fully understands, can empathize, has been there? This hurt. And still stings to think about. Because I don't fully know that answer. And I have been more broken of lately

I wonder if you all know I am on school break. I have a week and a half to get my mind back to baseline. I have been running around and barely have had time to reflect on me.
My daughter is the same. It's unreal with all the study and other daily life. Sometimes I think she just needs some quiet time. Not thinking. Peace. Some meditation. Yoga maybe. The sound of a bubbling brook sounds good. A real one. Not one on a cd or dvd.

Quote:
I wonder what books you all are reading. I am reading a few this break.
Today I read a couple of cookbooks but I'm still trying to finish "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac. It's been a long haul.

Quote:
I wonder what is going on in Alffe's life. I wonder about Lara. I wonder about scrabble. I wonder about Fury, Reyn, and those that don't visit SOS anymore. Kind of like me.
Me too.
Thanks wish. I'm plodding along one day at a time.
Always thinking. Always wondering.

Quote:
I wonder if they don't need to anymore. If they've moved on. Or if they fight in other ways.
I think there are many reasons why people don't post here anymore.

Quote:
I wonder what my purpose in life is and what I was meant to do here on Earth.
I think that's a massive question we've all asked ourselves. Just me, but I think we're here to learn how to care, and then we care and then we learn more about ourselves. (despite sometimes making bad choices and bad experiences along the way, sometimes forced upon us). That's about it for me in the simple terms. Compassion. I think that by caring for others and our world we will find the way. However, to be able to do that we need to be kind and caring of ourselves firstly. Heck, that can take time.


I truly believe that the death of my mother has made me the way I am today. I am a survivor, mentally strong, determined, strongwilled, self-reliant, and independent. I also keep most of my pain, anger and feelings inside. I refuse to be vulnerable to anyone, especially my husband. The only people who see that more emotional or softer side are my children. That too because of my mother.
