I am angry

Met a wonderful person, who works at the same place I work. Also helped by the Social Insurances.

She has Syringomyelia and takes every days drugs to kill her pain, but some pain is still here.

She's such a nice person, she cares about everybody, she's like an angel.

For once, I'm angry. God's not funny.



adding : to be more precise, she's got an Arnold-Chiari malformation with a Syringomyelia.

We just aren't enlightened enough to share his sense of humour. Or something.

Re: I am angry

An excellent quote Economisto. I remember asking our Vicar why I was so lucky to have such good parents, excellent health, etc, and why my friend was so ill. He told me some people had to be ill or poor, or extremely unlucky, so that we could appreciate what we have. I was about 6 then - when she died, that was it for me as far as religion was concerned. When my best friend, an angel if ever there was one, died aged 51 of pancreatic cancer (in 6 months) - I remembered that discussion with our Vicar- and it made me tremble with rage again.

I am so sorry Bertrand and I hope this will strengthen your special friendship and that supporting her will indeed help you too, somehow. Be brave and strong for her.

Re: I am angry

When things are not pleasant then drag god and religion into it and when everything is hunky dorian, indulge in research on evolutionary sciences.

Irony beats humour sometimes.

Re: I am angry

It's nice that the fortunate can look on the unfortunate and think it's this way for their own benefit. Happy smiley face.

Re: I am angry

Yeah well. Graham Greene was just being a kiss-ass. I love him anyway. Your friend is in pain for no reason at all. Just do you best to comfort her. Randomness is hard to deal with.

Re: I am angry

A friend told me this quote by Elizabeth Kubluer-Ross the other day

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

As a consolation to those so inclined I suggest they visit
www.tommyswindow.com for some powerful messages - all with
grand slide-shows. It will be a memorable experience.

Re: I am angry

One of the biggest myths of this world is that if you are good, good things will happen to you (Santa Claus) and if you are bad, you will get what you deserve (boogeyman)...

True justice is not found in this world....I am hoping it will be found in the next

I'm currently reading essays on "The Problem of Evil". If I find any answers, I'll let you know. But the chances aren't high.

I am very happy I don't believe in The One, so I don't have to fear The Other.

Re: I am angry

But to be fair God also created for them the remedy: people who care and want to give so much love to heal from the pain*
