  1. Hi there. I am not an amputee but I have taken care of my aunt who is recently a double amputee. She too feels helpless and depressed most days. After a long battle with diabetes she ended up losing her left leg due to an infection on her foot. 5 surgeries in 5 days resulting in an amputation just below the knee. Talk about a life changer. She is 54 yrs old. She moved in with me and I began the journey of nursing her back to health and fighting with insurance to get her a prosthetic. It took about a year but she did become mobile again. After about 6 months she developed a blister on her right foot. After 3 months of IV antibiotics (the strongest kind) at home she ultimately lost that leg as well. I thought for sure she would rapidly decline. Now her wheelchair is her only means of transportation. For the depression she takes a low dose of celexa and buspar for a booster. Although I am not sure how I would deal with it if I were in her shoes but she is doing aloy better. Lives on her own, cooks, cleans, watches her new grand baby, and enjoys life from a sitting down position. She still managers to except what she can not change and make the best of it. I will be praying for you friend and I hope you find peace. Always here to talk if you need a friend who can relate.
  2. Wow I can so relate to this. I myself had to have my beloved pet euthanized about a year ago. It was one of the hardest things to deal with. Some people do not realize that pets are not just pets to people. They are family. My dog and children grew up together so it was hard on them as well. I remember crying for days and still get emotional when I come across a picture. It is natural to miss, stress, worry, and mourn over a pet. Your not sensitive. You are loving! I will be praying for you!
  3. Parasites (what I call addictions) is anything that latches onto you and sucks the life out of you. They usually come in the form of drugs, gambling, or pornography! They promise pleasure but grow like a disease and consume more and more of your thoughts, time, and money! They steal away your loyalty not only to yourself but those who love you. We must break any and every form of addiction or it will break us!
