Jan 19, 2017 · Conflicts between a mother and her 32-year old son who moved back home in Just Want to Talk

Perhaps, things have changed from the beginning days at Sturbridge, and I don’t recognize the Village now. It could have been Sturbridge during the primitive stages. The best that I can remember, the people lived in makeshift tents made of animal skins. During those times, people were very creative. They learned how to protect and feed their family. Winters were horrible. I recall seeing some of the early days comforters. They were not elegant but they kept the family warm. Every time we went to Austria or Germany, I purchased a comforters. The first thing that you have to do is select the feathers. Next, the size. You return a few days later and the comforter is ready. I loved doing that.

Have a wonderful time in Florida. Which part of Florida are you staying? Things are improved here. My son’s romantic life is always up and down but he is adjusting better than he has since the divorce. Be well and bless you Leslie. Be safe.

As you know, or I think you know, I live in Arizona. It must be very, very cold in your area. I always loved visiting New England. My son, husband and I loved to drive up over the Thanksgiving holiday. One time, we visited an early settlers camp and an right down the road was a Native American camp. I have no idea how any of them survived the horrible winters. The early settlers camp was very basic. Most of them lived in tents but there were a few basic houses. They were drying animal skins and preserving food. They were not selling anything but we did buy a very small plate of beef–and I mean small. They hardly had enough food for themselves. The Native Americans approached us as we were taking a walk through the forest. I never saw their camp. All that I remember is their clothing–almost next to nothing but they were very friendly. They gave us food, which was not necessary but we accepted it and it was good. I will never forget that experience. It was wonderful. I can’t imagine how those people survived and then many of them headed West in covered wagons and survived that horrible trip.

You are a fabulously kind and strong person. I am amazed at your physical/emotional strength. You are the caretaker for a variety of age groups. My mother did the same thing, God bless her soul. My grandparents lived in a mobile home on our property. My dad built a small house on our property for his mother and niece. It could get pretty crazy at times but my parents found a way to be able to watch over them, provide transportation, provide the food and love them. At times the love part was not easy. Back in the day, we were very respectful to our elders and we protected them. We never sent them to a nursing home, thank God.

to It was difficult seeing him die. I held him until he took his last breath. He kept asking me for a drink of water. You have experienced far worse. Why, why have so many people killed themselves? Especially your brother. Those people had the whole world ahead of them. Had any of those people confided in you? I am sorry and I should not be discussing this. It is depressing and negative. I want you to know that my prayers and friendship are with you. Where do you live?

I have not been online for a few days because I was not feeling well but I am getting better. As an update, I would like to report that my son has been doing all of the laundry and cooking plus he prepares vitamin C drinks for me several times a day. His female friend stopped over on Saturday. As usual, she is not super friendly and my son’s attitude toward me changed immediately. He is not hostile but our normal relationship as a family changes. It becomes cold. I just walk away.

I should not complain about a family issue. I have read several of the discussion posting and there are tons of people who are really physically and emotionally suffering. I have not commented on any of the posts because I am not sure it is appropriate. OMG, I hope the doctors find out what is causing your current problem and that you get well. I will stay in touch. You too ok?
