Too far away from a brother with AIDS
      #673 - 03/30/00 08:45 PM

Alan is living with is Patrick his significant other. I
still feel so confused when I think back to being kids and
playing with him, fighting with him...and just thinking what a
pain this little brother was! His nickname was tag-a-long cause
we had to drag him everywhere with us. I liked to call him
squirrel...for Christmas a few years ago I gave him a stocking
full of mixed nuts...squirrel bait. We always rag each other.On
Sunday he called me...the day after my Halloween Party...he knew
I'd have a big head and just called to laugh at me. What will it
be like if he goes...such a hole in my heart. Mom and Dad are
both gone...he waited until then to come out. I feel so
helpless..I don't want to live with this grief anymore. It's sooo
hard. If there is someone who feels so alone..I know I do, please
know that I care for you. If only I could embrace you with all my
love, surely your cup would run over...Alan is in Florida I am in
Texas... too far. This is I feel. Mona

My heart goes out to you - I AM in the same situation (it's closer than you are but NewJersey to Maryland is still too far when the person you love is in pain. When my brother is feeling his worst he pushes people away...he wants us to visit when he feels stronger and we've had some special times that way these past 7 years but the oppotunistic infections are coming closer and closer together....
I'll pray for your brother too.
