Kudos for you.............I am very proud of you. I know the feeling your speak of as I have spent 14 days this month on the oncology unit at the U of MN and I am a touchy feely person as long as the receiver is receptive. I hugged a lot of family and patients with cancer. People were so willing to tell their story, share their hope and most of all fight a battle for their lives.
I want to do more work in a place that helps Cancer patients..............it gave me much more than I gave to the patients.
Take care and again, your story is amazing.

Wow, that was a wonderful loving experience for all of you. It does feel like you look for friends all over and when you least expect it a stranger is suddenly the friend that helps you the most.
Some of our physicians and nurses have gone on the "Doctors without borders" trips to Africa and the stories told were amazing. The lead Doctor did plastic surgery reconstruction so they did a lot of cleft lips and palates. The pictures they brought back of the sweet children made me want to sign up the next trip out.
I am so happy you learned quickly that hugs can bring you comfort and make you feel loved even from a stranger.
Working in the ER I did a lot of hugging...........sometimes I would ask if the person would like a hug and I was never turned down.
Bless you Erik and look how much you have accomplished this past year.
Take care my friend
Thank you so much for all your sharing and you have so obviously inspired others. Continue to be happy and most of all I wish you peace.
