What stage of Grief are you in?
 
The stages pf Grief Kubler-Ross identified are:

- Denial (this isn't happening to me!)
- Anger (why is this happening to me?)
- Bargaining (I promise I'll be a better person if...)
- Depression (I don't care anymore)
- Acceptance (I'm ready for whatever comes)


So here I am on Wed... and I am actually starting to get excited for this coming Sundays game against Miami. Am I just in denial here? I am looking at everything that has happened in the past and I keep coming to the conclusion that this team has more talent than it ever has had, is the second youngest team in the league, has played the toughest schedule of anyone thus far, has played 2 good teams to the point of winning recently, and we still have 7 home games left and an easier schedule ahead of us.

So which is it?? Denial for not accepting the reality of our 0-4 team and the meltdown of last week? Or acceptance of what has happened and ready for the tide to turn in our favor finally? And is it possible to experience multiple stages at once? Like when I realize every once in a while we Houston fans have the great Buffalo choke and now this game in our back pockets to keep forever. I do ask why? What did we do to deserve this?

For my own sanity, I am going with Acceptance (meaning I am selling myself on a better future) There is just no way this young team with so many bright spots for the future doesnt continue to get better and eventually make us forget all of our sorrows. We are no Detroit. Right? .... RIGHT!?!?!?

Really, I have been bouncing around between denial and acceptance. I still am having dreams that the last 4 minutes were just a dream. I have decided that somehow, someway the football Gods are going to make up for all we have endured so far this season.

Well I was never really in denial, I pretty much went straight to anger.

I'm at the laughing in the face of tragedy stage, so it must be acceptance.

I think binge drinking is a consolidation of all 5 stages in one setting. And they seem to come out erratically, sometimes simultaneously and in no particular order at all.

Ive accepted it, i mean besides last year I dont recall ever being in a much more of a posotive position. we are 0-4, and there is nothing i can do about it. Im not depressed because our team sucks, im dissapointed that they have been underachieving.

Right now my bright light is our upcoming schedule, slayton, and D Rob returning in a couple of weeks...

I have been cackling hysterically and uncontrollably, while drooling on myself. Which stage is that?

Overalls 10-08-2008 11:13 AM

Re: What stage of Grief are you in?
 
I went through all five stages pretty quickly on Sunday. So I guess I have accepted the fact that I am now like Cub fan. I will support the team forever and no other team will have my allegiance. I am a Texan fan, no matter how many years it takes for us to quit being a laughing stock.

I'm with you Overalls. But, I'm starting to second guess my decision to have Dirctv and the NFL ticket installed 2 weeks ago? Maybe I'm the jinx? I think that I will go and lie down for a while.

Acceptace.

Aside from a stretch of years when MJ retired and turned the NBA upside down, I'm pretty resigned to the fact that by being a Houston Based sports fan, Futility is a birth right.

Only through years of suffering have I been able to realize my ability to find solice in the acceptance of obscurity. :gun:

When I first read this thread I thought it said "What SAGE of grief are you in?"

I'm beyond it, everythings OK now that I've accepted the fact that it's atleast one more year now before we are finally playing for something in the month of December.

I'm not in a stage of grief. I'll be sitting in front of my TV this Sunday as if the last four didn't even occur and cheering the Texans on.

Afterwards my reaction will be heavily influenced by the score. Again. By about next Wednesday I'll be right back to where I am at today. Again.

I'm a glutton for punishment I guess.
