Ryuko, can you find a facility that can keep up with the demands of your ex-wife?

"Bhikkhus, how do you conceive it: is form permanent or impermanent?" — "Impermanent, venerable Sir." — "Now is what is impermanent painful or pleasant?" — "Painful, venerable Sir." — "Now is what is impermanent, what is painful since subject to change, fit to be regarded thus: ’This is mine, this is I, this is my self’"? — "No, venerable sir."

we cannot maintain/manage things to our satisifcation (anicca), this makes us unsatisfied (dukkha), and therfore we are helpless (anatta)
@ budo « Wed 1:59 pm »
anicca leads to dukkha therefore anatta

Does anybody know what the abbreviations "MS" and "VRI" stand for in the Mahasi Sayadaw's Notes section of the Manual of Insight?
@ rightviewftw « Wed 11:50 pm »
my first thought is that your sons should be helping you, they are more indebted to her than you are. Taking care of the sick is good, afaik the Tathagata said that he who would nurse him should nurse the sick.

I am living with ex wife who is seriously mentally ill and who will never get better. I returned to relieve my grown sons of this burden so that they may have a life. I am a Buddhist member of a Dharma Teaching group Sanga- I work with At Risk kids GangMembers . She is a tremendous burden on and off meds falls through all the safety nets ! If I left she’d be eating out of garbage cans and acting like a werewolf - melts down . How do I continue , when there are no real options .. My practice sustains me but I still feel depleated she’s so very angry and sad all of the time?!.... Any suggestions how my Buddhist Oractice can help me further?!

I am a Buddhist member of Dharma Treaching Order Non Ordained I live with my exwife who is mentally ill. I returned to care for her , rather than have the burden plCed upon my three grown sons. She will never recover SPMI. How do I cope as a Buddhist to the enormous pain stress and emotional turmoil I’m subjected too 24 hrs a day?!... My practice sustains me . But I still break down . My Sanga my mentor have no answers nor my Drs.. A hobsean choice . I can’t go she falls between all the cracks

"But if by doing this you don’t shake off your drowsiness, then — reclining on your right side — take up the lion’s posture, one foot placed on top of the other, mindful, alert, with your mind set on getting up. As soon as you wake up, get up quickly, with the thought, ’I won’t stay indulging in the pleasure of lying down, the pleasure of reclining, the pleasure of drowsiness.’ That is how you should train yourself. -- AN 7.58
