I have been thinking of what I take for granted when things are going "well". I think the main ones for me are my family and friends. I also take for granted that I am going to be able to get up and eat without pain and have energy to live my life, etc. It seems like when we can't do these things it makes us realize what should really matter mostin life. One of my best friends came and took my son today and will keep him overnight if necessary so I can go to the doctor with my husband later this afternoon. Sometimes it just helps having people listen that understand and don't judge us either when we feel bad like "oh what did you do this time", "what have you been eating etc.?". I am thankful for the support of people on this board too.
