If you would like to participate in Situation Sunday, the situations are posted weekly at Helena-BlueSky. This weeks first two situations are real ones that people are dealing with. (Not me, thank goodness.)
You are back in the dating game, after 20 something years of being married. You are in your 40’s. You meet some one you really like, and have been on a few dates….you really like this person. When do you tell him that you have a “problem”…A disease that effects you. It is not contagious…PKD,,,A kidney disease where you kidneys are enlarged and keep pushing forward,,and cysts that keep recurring in four major organs? You feel healthy and all, but at times it is a major setback? When and how do you let them know about this “baggage”?
Oh, this is simple. Immediately… This would be a major judgement of character and would tell me if this person is worth being around. Who wants to be with someone that won’t support you when you aren’t feeling so hot? Yeah, I want that chicken soup in bed.
A couple that you have known, and dealt with the past 15 years. Very nice people that have adopted a mentally challenged boy. They rented this house for the past 45 years,,,their adopted son lives in a separate apartment. They have just been told that their landlord has died and a distant relative now owns the place and gives them a order to vacate. They have 2 months to find a place to live. They are heart broken. And cannot afford today’s rent of $2000 a month. How do you help them?
This would be really hard. I don’t know as I have any help that I could provide except maybe help looking for a more affordable apartment maybe even in a different town. There would have to be something somewhere. I am pretty broke though and with already 3 adults and Kyra in my house the inn is pretty much full.
You have just been told by your doctor that you have a very rare disease, you blood can only flow to one extremity,,,your arms or your legs. You have to choose which ones, the other shall get amputated….which do you choose?
Keep my arms – This is easy actually for me. They can prop me into my computer chair and I will be less content, but would survive.
