I received a wonderful email from Lauri Winters with birthday wishes. She suggested I come to HW and read the b'day posts. So here I am and I'm dumbfounded. Thank you all so much for thinking of me on my birthday.
In 1998 when I was first dx'd I didn't think I'd have many more b'days, but here I am having had 8 more. I am so grateful that SOMEONE is watching over me.
Everything here is fine. We love living here in NV; what a change from the NYC area. Almost everyday the sky is blue and the sun shines, even in the winter. And that is truly a blessing.
While I'm here I've read some of the other posts. I recognize so few of the names but the pain comes through loud and clear. Keep fighting hard, everyone, to beat this "wretched" disease.
Just recently I was thinking about how much the IVillage board, first and then this one gave me so much courage to keep on going. Thank you all.
Best wishes to all of you, Gentle (((hugs))), Luci
