    yeah, what he said^^.

    Just show up for him. Don't offer advice or platitudes. He's in pain in more ways than one. Just love the shit out of him and see what you can do to ease it without taking a position or solutions.

    Mtngirl, good on you to help a caregiver.

    Support the guy for sure. What is the #1 thing NOT to say? For me, not being a social "mender" is something I have to guard against. Oldest of five I was always the referee and voice of wisdom.

    I respect her honesty. Article in The NY Times today about caregiver jobs. I'm sure you'd bail before you had to wipe the shit off your sick 80 y o wife. Die lonely my friend.

    Anyway, I'll call and converse without commiseration or blame pointing.

    Hookers and blow is when she finds out you're lacking before you hit 60.

    Small town partner-swapping in full effect here. 3 couples we know and engage with are on the outs. All with kids our daughter plays with. Small town, with a major employer that also just quit the marriage. Sucks so bad, especially at least one which is really ugly and in the community’s face. So sad, trying to support the kids involved as much as we can. School events and the kids sports scene is more than a little charged/awkward right now. Why are privileged, otherwise rational and capable people, so weak and petty. Not the first small town breakdown I’ve experienced, but this behaviour still astounds me.

    Well... it seems like I need to read this thread. Wife is looking for her own place now. Got pre approved for a loan. At least sheís not trying to kick me out of my townhouse. Pretty amicable so far.
    But Ellen kicks ass - if she had a beard it would be much more haggard. -Jer

    Old guru buddy of mine said hippy chicks are easy to get but impossible to get rid of. Makes sense. Hippies are professional squatters to begin with.
