When families and friends become more of a burden...

I don't know if it is me or just a fact that life is full of whiners. People, especially family members are so involved with their problems and issues and make the HUGE mistake of whining to me about it that I have to swallow my disgust and carry on with compassion. It is getting much worse to swallow probably because eventually most people go back to their normal and begin to whine again about their problems. The thing is I don't ever whine (except now on this board) since my son's diagnosis.… Continue

Pool Nightmare!

I have to share this story.
