Good Morning Dear Snowflake,
I am so sorry to hear your graft did not take and to learn of all you are going through. I know your journey has been a long one and often you have been alone on this journey. If I could I would walk beside you.
I understand your fears about car crashes to well. I had an anxiety attack on Friday as I was to go to my granddaughter's dance recital and the only way to get to where the school is located was to drive the freeway right where our son was killed. I was in tears all day. In the end my daughter took my ticket and went. We could not purchase another ticket as they were sold out as I could have rode in her car. The driving past the very spot of Todd's death just sent me into a bad place. I feel so weak and like a loser but I know that it is just my head playing with me. So you have a right to your fears but try not to let them overwhelm you.
I wish you could see your therapist more often as I think that is a great comfort to you most of the time.
I cannot believe your youngest is turning 18. The kids here can drive at 15. Scary but they have to take driver's education including behind the wheel classes so that is a good thing.
Any joeys around lately? I love your Roo stories.
I am so glad to hear from you and even thow it is not the best news it is still a blessing to know you are past the major surgery. You are in my prayers.
Gentle Hugs to you Snowflake.

Thank you sweetie, I appreciate your comment. I agree Hara, Raniah's quotes are always good.
Hello sweet lady, I am hoping your day has gone well. I am working all day tomorrow and will try to get back to you soon but meanwhile don't let any joeys sneak up on you.

So good to hear from you but sorry to hear you have limited access to the computer. I think having your support group here was a great type of therapy for you.
I hope your visit to the oncologist goes well and remember you are a survivor and we are always here to support you with words of encouragement and support.
Take care my friend and do be good to yourself.
Snowflake I have been thinking about you- last time you posted you said your internet usage would be limited. I have thought of you often. I am so glad you are back, but so sorry for all that life is throwing at you. Please stay strong and when it gets too much, let us be strong for you. You are such a special lady, you only deserve all the good in this world. I love that you are a fighter, not a victim. I look up to that.
I can feel your pain and am sending you hugs. I am also a cancer survivor who has had many reprucussions from treatment. I have also wondered why I went through all of that. Then I have to remember I have had a gift of 4 extra years on this earth. As many people have told me look for the gift in each day. I know that is so hard when you are in pain and feel crappy. I also have had to deal with lots of infections in my sinuses. I have finally gone to a homeopathic doctor to build my immune system back. Antibiotics have not worked. I don't know if you know this ,I didn't your immune system starts in your digestive tract. That is why probiotics are so important. I can say I am making slow progress. It takes a long while to get all of the poison out of your system.Please hang in there you are a valuable person and worth fighting for. I have found it very therapeutic to read and post on this forum. I think that depression is fed by keeping our anger inside and not expressing it . You are in my prayers. Duck
