    Years ago, when I was having a bad time, the thought occurred
    to me that "children throw away happiness and they don't even know what its is." Something as simple as a piece of string can keep a kid entertained for some time yet as we get older, it seems it gets that much more difficult to be happy. However, since Dx, very little is indeed needed to be somewhat satisfied, such as just waking up and being able to get out of bed and do most of what I could before........By the way Nudgie, it feels soooooo good to finally be able to lift with left arm now.....Look at me six months from now!!!!!.steve

    That is so true. So many people sweat the small stuff and get caught up in things that don't really matter. I'm glad just to be able to sit through dinner without being in pain.
