    Melissa ..... Sorry I don't remember the specifics of your brother's history. I had a blood clot at Christmas time and am just now recovering myself. I lost my brother many years ago at 23 years old, I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Would you tell me briefly what's going on with your brother? Again, sorry I don't know as you've likely posted about it. I've just been away from the forum this last month. Tell me how I can help you. God bless.

    Robert,
    I don't know if you remember me, but my Brother was on the heart transplant list. He's at Ross Heart Hospital at Ohio State University. I just lost my Mother in August of 2009. You have been helping me get off opiates. I thought you might remember me. I feel like I'm at the end of what I can handle. It's just too much.

    Melissa,
    You are in my prayers. Please don't do anything rash. Take a deep breath sweet heart. You are stronger than you think. Be strong for your brother right now. You can do this and so many people care. If you need to talk I will email you my phone number if you can put your email address on here. I am one year clean this month so I've been through it. So sorry for your pain. Stay strong and don't let anguish make you decide anything.
    Jenny

    Melissa, I'm so sorry for you. My husband is on the liver transplant list in NYC. There are never enough donors. I have no advice. There's nothing that can be said to make you feel better except that going back on opiates won't make the situation better, Mel and it won't make you feel better. It really won't. There are people who love you and need you. My heart goes out to you and all my prayers go out to your brother.

    Melissa .... Certainly I remember you and I remember the history now that you've refreshed my memory. I was working with so many people a couple months ago that I just finally had to back off. Then I got pretty sick myself. I definitely remember us working on getting you off the opiates.

    I can relate to how overwhelming it can be to lose two people so close like you describe. The same month my brother died my best friend was killed in an auto accident in Mexico. His children were missing. He nearly lost his wife as well. I had to go and find his children who were with missionaries in Mexico and it had only been a couple weeks since my brother had died. I was besides myself.

    Tell me what I can do to help you. The only other thing I know to do is for you to send me your email so I can email you back with my number. I don't want you to be in such a dark place. Please don't do anything you can't fix. Let me know. God bless.

    Melissa .... we are on the west coast, it's only 10:00 here. If you're freaking out that badly just go ahead and call. It's up to you how you feel but it isn't late here. Call if you like. God bless.

    I gotta say, I've been lurking alot here (along with a trip of my own) and Robert, you are an awesome dude. Melissa, I don't know you, except for we are both Ohioans, but you've already shown you have strength. You can get through this. Easy for me to say, but the human mind and spirit, along with the power of prayer can do amazing things. Good luck to you.

    Melissa, I messaged you on facebook. Please don't do anything rash. This can seem bad one day, be better the next. I pray for the transplant to come through. You have so many people who care about you, here and in your life... Is your husband home? Talk to him if he is.

    Hey Melissa,
    You are in great hands with Robert and Melinda. They are the most caring people and will see you through this. If you really need someone and can't get through to them I will be here and we will get in touch in a more personal way. We all know the feeling of being lost. There are so many people here who care. Keep posting sweetheart. I am praying for your brother.
