I thank God for finding me this web site....thank you all. I love reading your stories, and hearing all the support you give eachother. I'm awainting my second surgery on Feb 8th. Your stories have helped me so much, i cant thank you all enough. I work run the computer in a cafeteria, and i talk to everyone. They've known i've had problems for years, but some of them didnt know exactlly what was wrong. So when I had to train someone on the computer to take my place while i'm out. everyone knew that something was up. So i was very open with the whole thing. They have all been so wonderful and supportive. Cards, prayers, meals. I believe very strongly you should tell the ones you know. While your down recovering, just a card or phone call from them is really nice. It feels good to know they care.The more you tell, the bigger of a support team you have.
Keep looking up....you can make it through anything.
