Thank you all so much for your replies. They have made my day :) Good to hear I uplifted some people.

I agree with everything said. This is a very serious disease that can just be too much to handle sometimes. I believe that it's important to have good people in your life who love and care about you (something I am lacking right now).

I am new to this site but I can tell already that it is going to give me hope to get up everyday with a smile on my face (even if sometimes I don't wake up the happiest person smilewinkgrin ) Different things help different people... for me it's easier to focus on other people.

Having pets helps me a lot. If anyone was wondering why my name was squirrle (i know its spelled wrong hahaha) it's because I have a pet squirrel that I rescued from birth. Along with a ferret and a cat. I have found that it helps me to have something to take care of other than myself. I would highly recommend volunteering at an animal shelter or something. It makes me feel like I have purpose in my life. And like I'm good for something.

I believe that everyone's pain and struggles are different and they should be handled differently. I know that there are many other people out there who have it so much worse than me. My heart goes out to them, and to anyone who has lost a loved one. It can change your life. Either for better or for worse. It's up to you. I am still recovering from the loss of my sister. And take it day by day.

Much love to all,

getting by

You sound like such a gentle soul. I have two dogs and I love animals. I use to feed the wild animals in the woods around me. I really enjoyed nature. It was like therapy to watch them.

I hope that you are having a good day.

Hugs, Karen

Yes, animals are really great therapy. I just love watching my dog run around randomly, trying to chase birds or flies or ANYTHING, lol. There's something about nature that just.. Helps. Can't really describe it any better than that. The beauty of nature never ceases to amaze me. It's just the motivation to get out in nature that's the problem.

I completely agree that you have to have people who care about you in your life. Along with that goes understanding. When I first started out on this journey, no one around me understood the disease, so they judged me and my character apart from the disease itself. Also, I'm sorry that you lack caring and understanding people in your own life. Just know that we're all here for you, and we care about you.
God Bless! Sending hope and healing your way!
