BMW, Mercedes, and Huge Cucumbers

Dear Friends,


I just returned from Germany, where I spent much too few hours with family and friends, leaving my son D. to get along on his own for nine days. He didn’t do too well. In the past months his illness has aggravated and our two-room, two-person home has turned into a psychological battlefield, leaving both of us emotionally drained and frustrated. I have decided that the time has come to separate our dwelling/s.

I am really happy to be back in my supportive and so inspiring WP community, and thank you all for sticking with me. Hugs, Heila

    1. Vielen Dank lieber Klaus.

      Viele Gruesse zurück aus einem feucht-klebrig-schwülen Sommer hier in Zentralisrael.
      (Habe von meiner Mutter, die in der Nähe von Wiesbaden lebt, gehört, dass der deutsche Sommer zu wünschen übrig lässt…)

      Alles Liebe,

  2. Hi Heila 😀 I am pleased that you took the break in Germany and that things are gradually being worked out in your home. I hope it all happens. Ralph xox ❤


  3. I am glad you have support …….. you seem tough but help around you is good for the being. Change like this is always difficult for all involved but that doesn’t make it any easier. Stay strong.


    1. Thanks dear Tubularstock. I am tough, sometimes, because I have no choice; but believe me, I’ve spent many sleepless and lonely nights, crying my eyes out… However, for some mysteriously heavenly reason, the sun always returns to shine on me and refill my batteries…


    1. Thanks, dear Tubularsock.

      Yes, another difficult phase lies ahead of us, but we’ll pull it off, no question. Together with a social worker, his mentor, and a treatment coordinator (the latter is a direct translation from the Hebrew – I don’t know the equivalent in the US) we are working on preparing my son to move to supported/supervised housing…as a first stage.
