Not Dealing

I'm in the middle of some stuff that I'm not sure I'm able to handle.

After dealiing with my mother's apparent loss of just about all of her recently-diminishing brain power, I now learned that my first real girlfriend -- who became a good adult friend, with whom I'd lost touch in the last year -- died this weekend. Trite phrases aside, I'm not dealing with all of this too well.

I know, I know -- whoop de doo. Where the hell are the naked broads and the off-kilter photos? Let's hope they come back.

I may start building model train sets. . . .

That's actually quite a bit to have fall in your lap all at once.

Not much I am able to say that won't sound cliche, but the way you get through this stuff is one step, one day, at a time.

Sadly, life isn't always babes and porn... I'm wishing you a plethora of both on the other side of the adversity!

Wow -- you know how to drag a fella down!

Hey, Watson -- this DarkSatr is right, though -- one day at a time. And remember those bits about what you can control and what you can't -- and accept it. . . .

And then look for babes and porn.

Or babes

I third the advice already offered: do your best to get by day by day, minute by minute. Even the darkest moments pass by and by.

I am, however, not quite ready to accept the notion that life is not always about babes and porn. Deny yourself nothing you desire and refuse your heart no pleasure, especially in times like these.

For what it's worth, I empathize. As my mom died, my best friend started treatment for chemo. She'll make it, but it all plunges me into the pool of thoughts about time and mortality. That day by day stuff, will work, especially when thinking about capital T time. A little porn hasn't gone amiss, either.
