Just some thoughts from a sad women. I am going through an ugly divorce, I am being traded in for a newer model. I also lost my sister Margie to cancer four weeks ago and Sploofus has provided me with a healthy outlet for my pain and anger. Also, I have laughed at alot of the quizzes, some are so clever! My favorite was "Male Anatomy", kudos to the author. Well, enough of my pity pot. Have a good evening.

Sorry for all that has seemed to have piled on you at once. It is true tho' that if something is worrying me or things aren't going so well, or just a bad day, once you get on the "Island" it keeps your mind busy and your hands, and somehow blocks the rest out. There are some really nice and interesting people on here whom I have met, and I think it is great therapy! I hope you continue to enjoy this experience.

I feel sorry for your pain, which is necessary in order to get through both of these situations. It is hard to understand, but it will get better. I am, as are many in here, living proof of that statement. In the long run, I think you will discover that you are the one who is trading up. Look up to the sun and smile wherever you go. Share fond stories of you sister.

Thanks for telling us about what you are going through. I haven't been there, quite, but I can almost guess at the pain. For myself, I've found that when I'm no longer interested in playing Sploofus, that's when I'm in trouble. As long as I'm still checking in, I still have some interest in life and all will be well. I'm glad you can find some small degree of solace here.

Hey Jorboo! Hang in there!! YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT! Sploofus has also helped me to get through difficult times. I have been bed-ridden for two months, and I would have gone crazy if it wasn't for my laptop and Sploofus! The "island" is my absolute escape from reality....a fairly addictive escape!

I am the "Male Anatomy" author. I am so happy to have cheered you! I so appreciate knowing that I had some purpose in writing that quiz.

I will say a prayer for God to strengthen you and for Him to help you through this difficult time. God bless!

I see from your profile you are an's your job to heal people and it must be especially hard when you have so much pain going on in your own life. Things will gradually get better. Sploofus folks are some of the nicest in the world - it's a great island to be on. I will send some positive energy your way, along with a special blessing for healing.

Thu, 15th Mar '07 4:29 AM have had to endure some harrowing events without the kinda support you need. the loss of your sister is heart-breaking, it takes time to heal that heartache.

Can I suggest you plant a tree someplace, where you can contemplate and pray for solace..a place where you can talk with your sister in privacy.

Look at the life-changing aspects of the divorce, and try to find some uplifting positives that make single life better! I am sure in time you will get over the hurt of being betrayed like that, and be a stronger woman for it. Your husband obviously did not see that wisdom, experience and loyalty are of far-greater value than just looks. That is NOT your fault..the bad choice was his alone.

You will have the best support-group of friends here you could wish for!
Sploofus is a good remedy for whatever ails you.

I understand all you are going through. I lost my sister a year ago and have had the same "other" troubles as well. I know that mere words can't take the pain just remember that you are loved and here in the land of Sploofus-terrific there is sunshine and caring. Bless you.
