Why do the rest of us stay? To help. If sometimes our messages seem like "tough love", so be it.
But at some point, you all have to say "it is what it is", so I have celiac, big freakin deal.
We're still here. Some of our members are battling cancer and some have passed away, but they never gave in to the whining or the "poor me" stuff for very long. They just live--one day at a time.
It's all any of us can do anyway.
Well said, IH. I thought it needed repeating. We are still here. And we are still here in the hopes that we can help others to be still here, living life. We are not here to be the wicked witches of the west. We are not here because we like arguing or because we feel sorry for ourselves. We are here to try to give you whatever help you need. If you don't like the message, feel free to disregard it. But don't complain because it was offered -- you did after all come here seeking it, even if it wasn't the message you hoped for.
