Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a decent day today. Ok, my family really, REALLY needs some hardcore prayers. I won't get into what the issues are because they are all off topic and I don't want to take up space whining about them. Just please pray for good things to happen for us, or for the guidance to lead us to where the help is that we need so desperately. We had some rough times last year (you guys helped me through them and thank you again!), but it is far worse and much more serious this time. Sorry to butt in with a posting like this, but I have to try everything and anything that I can. And if you don't pray, just please send us some strong, positive thoughts. Thank you so much. Have a peaceful day.

Thank you SO much, everybody! Linda, that was beautiful - thank you. With all that you are going through, you still take the time to reach out to others - I have tremendous admiration for you. And by the way, you are still traveling around the world on that prayer chain! To each of you - your prayers and positive thoughts are appreciated more than you could possibly know. I wish that I could vent on here about it, as I really have no one else to talk to. But I just can't. It's all just too much and has nothing to do with CP (except for the fact that the problems, and resulting stress, are increasing my pain levels tremendously). I have been through a lot in my life, but it has never been this bad and this hopeless. I have always been the 'cheerleader', always found a way out of whatever mess I've found myself in, but this time there just isn't anything else I (we) can do. I'm so used to 'fixing' things, but I can't this time and I am lost. Thank you again everyone - you are some of the most wonderful, caring, understanding, and compassionate people I have ever encountered. I wish the very best for all of you.

Thank you everyone. Please keep praying and thinking positive for us. It sure is getting hard to hang on to hope, but it's all I have right now. I'm really scared and I hate that feeling. I'm so used to being strong, this feeling of weakness is a real bummer. Blessings to everyone.
