I don't know what they expect? My exH thinks after all this time, all he's done, that one nice e-mail and he has the right to ask me to keep him "informed" about my life. I think your exSO and my exH were cut from the same cloth. Yes, we are in control on this end of things and they have no rights left!

I just got a call from my dad, AFTER he got out of the hospital... He has been in there for the last 2 days and no one called me to tell me. He lives in Vermont, I in Virginia. I'm upset and hurt by my step-mother that she didn't call, regardless if he asked her not to. It seems he went in with heart attack symptoms, starting having chest pain while mowing the lawn and two nitro tablets didn't help. Off he went in the ambulance. If something had happened to him, I wouldn't have found out until afterwards. He said he didn't want to worry me. My stress level just jumped way up!

My mom is the same way, Lori. Her thought is that if something does happen there's nothing I can do anyway. *sigh*. She doesn't get that she'd KILL me if I did the same to her!

When we were together, you said you'd die for me. Now, I think it's time you kept your promise.

Debi,

You know, either way it has totally unsettled and worried me. I'd rather have known. Ugh! If something should have happened to him in all of this and I didn't get to talk to him one last time, tell him I love him one more time, I'd be tortured by that forever. I think I have the right to have that option. I spoke with my step-mother tonight and begged her one more time for her to please just call me next time. We've had this conversation at least 5 times now. She and I get along well and I was very nice about it. On the inside I was livid, but never let her know it. My dad would also be very upset if I did the same to him, but getting him to understand that, seems to be a lost cause. I'm not sure what to do about it now, except I think I am going to send an e-mail to him, saying pretty much what I just wrote here too.

Lori

Lori,

Congratulations on graduating and passing your boards!

Itís been a long haul but youíve made it to one of your goals. Thru difficult times (family, financial, relationships) you have continued to move forward to a better and brighter future. I used to post on the old board and I think itís hard for you to see it when you are living it but the strength and growth youíve shown is inspiring (just like PR said).

Hi there PrairieGirl !!! [Re: PrairieGirl]

Getting ready to head out the door and close up shop when I saw your screen name and had to take a minute to say hello!

Hope all is going well with you. If you get a chance, post an update. I'm sure some of the other oldtimers would love to hear from you as well as myself!

Things are fine here. A few bumps in the road now and again, and occassionaly the X can still get to me, but doing well for the most part.

Glad to see you and take care :).
