    Could use some prayers too. Anxiety, depression, OCD...the whole nine yards. Battling hellish limbo.

    I have found I can talk about my problems until the cows come home. It definitely helps but never fixes anything. I can take meds too but again, they just mask my issues.

    The only way I’ve broken through issues is to work hard at changing my behavior. Most anxieties I’ve had were due to over worrying and procrastination.

    Procrastination is deadly to me. So I no longer say I’ll do “x” someday. I either do it or I don’t and I’m ok either way.

    I’ve learned no one and no drug can fix any of my issues that are caused by my behavioral issues. That used to frustrate me but today it’s something that gives me tremendous comfort

    Lastly, I read recently that almost all our fears are grounded in fear of death. As I’ve aged, I’ve accepted death as part of life. If I allow fear of death to rule my life, I’ll never actually do much living. What’s the sense in living life waiting to die? So I appreciate everyday as a gift, not a right. After all, none of us have the right to life. But we do have the right to live joyously through good and bad times.

    I believe happiness is a lot like faith. They’re both choices. But to be happy, I have to participate in life with my family and friends often. The more I participate, the less I live inside my head where gloom & doom can take over.

    If I remain alone and isolated, I have no chance at being happy or content

    Holidays are difficult times for many. The best thing you can do for yourself is communicate, keep talking about your issues even if you think you are boring. Don't be alone. Walk the streets and say hello to everyone you meet. Go to a movie. Ask for help.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving, make it happy, smile, talk and eat.

    Things had been going quite well. Patsboy12, Froob, and I have become good friends in real life. We converse multiple times almost daily. They are great guys and I truly appreciate their friendship.

    On April 27th, my 30 year nephew died suddenly. He was a great guy. A pure joy to his uncle from the day he was born to his last day. Please keep my family especially my sister and brother in law in your thought and prayers as well as his two sisters and two brothers.

    He was a great Patriots fan who shared an interest with me in the draft. We’d watch the combine, peruse the websites, and read the publications and exchange thoughts and opinions. He died on the last day of the draft. I hope to carry on my interest in the draft. But, it will be difficult and I’ll sure miss his take on things.

    In 2007, we went to see a couple of Patriots training camp practices. We got lost but thanks to his excellent direction taking skills we only missed the 1st 15 minutes. He was a horrible driver but a pretty good co-pilot.

    Tomorrow is his Memorial service. The recommended attire is Patriots gear. It’s going to be a hard one.

    So sad to hear about your nephew. It is never easy to lose someone so young.

    It’s great to hear about the friendships you have made.

    All the best to you and your family.
