    Can I just say “ditto” to all that? 🙂 My mom had an aortic dissection in 2003 that triggered a stroke and left her paraplegic. The two months she was in the hospital dredged up and brought forward a whole lot of family issues. Those consumed most of the next five or so years, until I learned I could give myself permission to not participate. That triggered a whole host of other issues that took a couple of years to settle down.

    During that time I escaped into Guild Wars, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. I spent hours killing monsters instead of hunting down my hurtful family members and throttling them.

    Now I’m finally in a place where I’m focusing on the things I want and need, and what I can do to help the people around me be happier. Now my family is sniffing around, looking for chinks in my armor. They’re little more than the buzzing of a mosquito, though. Like you I’m focused on where I’m going now and don’t have the time or the interest to consider those distractions.
