Dr. Wright's Journals: More Problems, More Tragedy--What's Next??

Dr. Wright is reeling with things going on in his life.

Sunday, November 18, 2007, 7:09 a.m., C.S.T., Nashville Children's Hospital~

Dear Journal~

Wayne Wright here.

I'm afraid I'm not doing too well at the present. I'm at Nashville Children's Hospital, waiting to see the doctor about my niece, Susie. She fell a while ago; they think she may have suffered a concussion; I won't know until he talks to me.

I am also not doing well because my sister, Audrey, is being difficult, unreasonable. I keep telling her to trust in God when things go awry; she only manages in shutting the door in my face or slamming down the phone whenever I try to call. It's like she's trying to shut herself and her kids from the world, and I don't like that.

She is more than ready to sever ties with me, go back to England, where, I suppose, she can feel sorry for herself--again.

All of this undue stress in my life is causing me to have terrible chest pains. I don't know if I am going to end up having a heart attack due to all the stress I'm currently under; I certainly don't want to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in the hospital, wired to monitors!

I am going to have to be careful, try to lay low for a while. If you don't hear from me, it's not because I'm being rude: I just need to get away, clear my head for a while. My health has suffered terribly these past few months, and all of a sudden I feel one hundred years old instead of in my later 30's.

I look in the mirror; I am shocked at what I see: a stooped-over, sad old man with greying hair and pale skin. I look like I've aged thirty/forty years. It's terrifying!

I am going to have to reevaluate my life, see what I can do to try to mend my relationship with Audrey and her family; right now it's looking hopeless, and my own faith is starting to suffer.

I will write later as soon as I am able; right now I am in no condition. Besides, the doctor is here; his name is Dr. Tungsten; he wants to talk to me about Susie, what's going on with her.

~Wayne. :(

Like a dustbin we collect all kinds of rubbish and important things and experiences until it is full, we can from time to time empty it or be brought down by its weight.
Stop, empty it and don't let anything fall in it for a while if one wish to matain sanity.

Stress and heart conditions go hand in hand and sounds like it is time for him to see a doctor himself.

You captured the gravity of the situation well here
God Bless
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 11/18/2007
You've really captured the sad situation that sometimes happens in families when they are going through a problem. We think sadness and problems should pull a family together, but it doesn't always do that. It seems so sad that we waste our wonderful God-given gentleness by letting anger, frustration, and rage rob us of love, sharing, and the beauty of generosity and giving.

Very wise, and probably something all of us should do from time to time to re-charge the old batteries.

Wow! What a wonderful write my friend...Much going on within the lines of this story...We all need to take time to get away and clear our heads, take a rest or some cases just take a breath! It is amazing the tolls that time, troubles, heartache, daily living and life in general can take on our appearance. I remember the day not so long ago that I glanced in the bathroom mirror and thought for sure I had caught a glimpse of my mother! Great write my friend! It's good to be back at the den this morning!
Blessings and happy holidays,
Joyce B.
