    Hi, It seems to me you have dealt nwith ALOT of losses in the last few years, have you taken time for you to grieve? Your post of friends saying ''get over it'' struck a raw nerve with me....after losing my brother, I called my mom crying saying it's his Birthday, her words and I quote...GET OVER IT. I should of known then she would NEVER be there for me when I needed it, and these friends of yours are saying the same thing, JMO. I am now excised from my mom, my choice, but you need support after all you have gone thru, and if they can't be there for you, maybe a grief support group in person would be good for you. Good Luck!

    I'd like to thank you for your nice comment about my post. I feel compassion for the pain and grief you must be expeiencing. Because I had such a deep religious belief in God , I stuggled with a few aspects of Buddhism ,like reincarnation. At first I felt like I was betraying God; even though it was God that lead me to it. I've worked all that out now and have a closer relationship with God . Much of Buddhist ideas have to do with freeing the mind of negative thoughts and feelings. Showing you ways to see the real nature of the mind and existence. It also has moral guidelines to ethical living as well. Thich Nhat Hahn has a book called,"Living Buddha Living Christ " , that you could probably find at a library. There are different branches of Buddhism. I take a simple approach. I meditate, i try to be mindful -so that thoughts don't control me. And I still feel that God is a presense close to me guiding me . Hoping this helps in some small way ~ Michelle
