Learning as I go

I never knew that therapy suck being that's what I did for a living before getting fired but now I know it does.

I'm also finding out who my friends are.

I thought I had many but many I have not.

But I'm learning as I go!

    Your true friends will always be that. The ones who don't stick by you are not worth having. But I know it really hurts to discover this!

    Yes, rehab sucks. And you are tough, sweetie, and will succeed!

    Big hugs to you...

    Friends who apply peer pressure aren't really looking out for your own well-being.

    I'd rather have a few close friends, than have a lot of friends.

    Keep up with the sucky therapy. :)

    Lean on me...When you're not
    strong...I'll be your friend...
    (sung REALLY off key and extra loud
    just so the people in the next
    county over can hear me)

    Ya know...When you don't talk to
    me there isn't much I can do except
    worry and worry some more...
    I'm glad that you're doing OK...But
    I really wish I could make you
    100%...I'm glad you ate lunch...
    Makes me happy to know that you're
    eating :)

    LOVE YOU!!!

    Physical therapy sucks because it is not easy. It takes a lot of work and a lot of time. In the end, it does work.

    Just hang in there and get better, Ryan.
    Jobs and friends may come and go, but as long as you have your family and a few close friends, and your own inner strength, you'll come through it all.

    When we're young we often miscalculate how many "friends" we really have. Or maybe we're just not yet good at figuring out what a friend is. Especially in the gay world, we for some reason are not good at developing strong male/male friendships that aren't sexual. Whatever, we think we have many friends when we really do not.

    Ryan, I'm sorry you're learning some of life's lessons the hard way. You must be going through a really tough time right now. But have faith. You will get through this, and you'll be a better, stronger person for it.

    Be good.

    A big hug from over the pond.

    It's a pity that we usually have to go through really tough experiences to get the catharsis we need.

    PT therapy? It's hard, but you have to do what they say, and don't resist them. I'd be a terrible PT therapist. All you'd have to do is cry in pain once, and I'd feel terrible and let you stop. I hope you at least got a cute therapist though.

    And, I know what you mean about finding out who your friends are. I found out who mine were almost two years ago when I had to go through something difficult. It's weird, the people I did the most for over the eyars, are the same people who disappeared the fastest when I needed them most. And they aren't friends anymore. And the ones who were there, I've always remembered.

    I believe it is better to have a close knit group of close friends then just many friends. I know it hurts when you find out who your real friends are and who isn't? By the way did you receive my card in the mail? I hope ya did. Get better ryan and stay strong. I know you can get through this. I myself have been through Rehab and yes I will agree with you, it sucks big monkey balls. Just keep your head up and stay strong. I know you will get through it my little trooper. I get worried when I dont hear from you.

    Get better beautiful.

    Love and many hugs,
    your lil guardian "angel"
