I guess it is my turn, to truly use the board, for something I have learned to appreciate since finding this place. I am so grateful that so many have found this in their time of need. I too, found it in mine, so it seems.
I have an appointment on Friday to see what might be going on down in that bellie of mine. I have been having problems for sometime but learned to live with it. Now it seems things have changed and one must go have these things checked out. My turn on Friday. I have been so lucky, everything else along the way sorting itself out. My what a day in a life and it happens to be mine.
Isn't it funny how life can be. I still find myself so amuzed by the insanity of it all. As if we haven't had to deal with enough, then try and find a life for ourselves in our new bodies and minds. My...
we take this on as our challenge only to realize that we still have so much to face, so many realities, a one, two punch.
Everyday I go to work wondering if it will be there tomorrow. I have worked for 25 years and really don't have anything more than I did back then. What I had I lost due to my sickness and inability to work. It has taken years to get my life back to somewhere I can truly exist in.
I am so grateful that I have the ability to face it all and find some way to cope, now in peace. I think I truly do have the ability to let things go. I truly do know what it is like to "FACE MY FEARS and do it ANYWAY" (just like a book I once read).
Thanks for being the sounding board. I feel this is a place I can come to gain some perspective, for my life.
Thank You ALL,

    Dear Tara:
    I believe it was Mother Teresa who once said,'I know God won't give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much.' I think we can all appreciate her statement. You are continually in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you Tara and keep you strong. Let us know what you find out.
    Hugs and prayers, Brenda
