I thought this thread would be more dog/pet related...but it took on a really enlightening and personal tone...

I guess in terms of the most difficult thing I've had to face (without it being dog/pet related) is to deal with my mother's HIV. She contracted it through blood transfusions a long time ago. Altough she's fairly healthy, I've a sad suspicion that her ttreatment as well as the virus itself and her stubborness lead to depression, parnoia and other mental issues that I can't pinpoint...

Dog related: adopting out the foster dogs and see them leave and look back to me form their new owners car window. Harder than having to make the decision to put an old or sick dog down as I didn't have a choice. With each foster dog I felt I had a choice; keeping or not.

I can think of a few things, deaths of loved ones, illnesses, etc.. There are three events in my life that really stand out to me, and I can't seem to determine which was the most difficult, so I will post all three. One was when I was 15 and found out that I was pregnant. I had a very strict father and I was afraid of him. I went through my whole pregnancy, with the exception of my boyfriend, I didn't tell a soul that I was pregnant. I went into labor and had to tell my mother to take me to the hospital, and why I needed to go.
The second thing that stands out is having to call my mother, who was on vacation, that her brother and only family member left, had passed away suddenly.
The third thing, is I went through the last trimester of my third pregnancy in kidney failure, on the verge of death. After my son was born, it was discovered that my doctor had seriously messed up two of seven surgeries I had to keep me alive, and had no idea how to fix it. A radiologist from the hospital called my hubby and told him to get me out of there before that doctor killed me. I was sent the country's leading specialist to undergo two more surgeries to fix the damage done to me, all the while having no bonding time with my new son. I had serious postpartum psychosis due to this, and it took me years to recover from it all.

I agree with Lillie...It may be because of my age...but I too, feel blessed despite events that should have be my demise..I am sorry for all that you all have gone through and have great respect for your strength and fortitude to have made it through and still be very, very decent and caring human beings..

I can look back now, and realize that going through all the things I have gone through has made me the person I am today. And, I like who I am and where I'm at.

I just can't relate something that personal on a website for some reason, but I can almost feel the pain so many have gone through. Glad though, that you've come out stronger.

What's The Most Difficult Thing You've Had To Do?

I had my father die in June 2011 and my grandmother whom I loved dearly die 2 months ago. But I don't view that as difficult for me. Both had accepted Jesus and I know I will see them again in heaven. I am amazed at the strength demonstrated by people on this thread. I am impressed that you d.id not end up curled in a ball crying. I know I would be if I had to deal with what I have read here.
