As I read these responses I am crying, not because I am sad, because I see genuine concern, respect and understanding.
Understanding that can only come from being in the same place at one time or another.
I love this forum and am grateful , so extremely grateful to have found it .
Ditto on the tear-filled eyes!!...and very grateful for the messages, the support and the HOPE you all provide. I have felt so alone dealing with all of this until now. I fought hard to get well, but I needed compassionate support from those who also deal with this disease. My family --as much as they try--just does not "get it"--but YOU all do.
I , too, start each day in gratitude for what I HAVE-- not what I have lost.
