Hello there,

your post is not sad at all! Some of us just need to be heard. We need to know that we are not alone and that there is still life to be lived.

I don't know what you are going through. In fact, I have never been in that type of physical pain and can not say I can relate. I did, however watch my husband of 2 years fight for his life until the very end. He was in pain most of the time, and honestly, I wish he were here to tell you how he coped. He did, however, keep a positive attitude through it all. He litereally prayed, that if he had to die from cancer that something good would come out of it.

He died less than two months ago and I am feeling so much heartache. So.. like you, I come here. Maybe just to learn something from someone else, or to give my advise on what I have been through. Sometimes, just to know I am not alone. I am always hearing stories of how Zach changed someones life. Just by being a friend, or by the way he lived his life which was full of adversity. I know I will never be the same.

What I read from your post is that you are a miracle. You have beat the unbeatable. You are a SURVIVOR. You may feel defeated, but your still breathing. I will certainly keep you in my thoughts and prayers- That you will find peace and understanding as to why you were given this life to live. If you ever need to talk more, feel free to private message me. But be warned... I will have some kind of optomistic advice. :)

Blessings,

Janelle
