I wanted to express how much I have missed you all and how much I appreciate my HW friends. I also thought I would give you a little info on why I was gone so long.
First, I started feeling better for a while and needed the site less for support. I didn't want to be selfish and not give others support, but I found that I was enjoying life for a while and I wanted to take advantage of that time. Also, my daughter was with me a great deal and my adopted POM (who is thriving now with a new vet and a lot of treatment for the heartworms and emotional scars left from her abuse) was helping me to learn to let go and give love more freely. I needed her as much as she needed me and I love her with all of my heart. She has brought my family closer together in so many ways.
I found that you guys still kept my interest and I checked (lurked) fairly often, but I always had someone with me and they needed my attention (as I'm sure you all understand) so I would take a quick look to check up on everyone and then go back to my family.
When I started having the major pain increases, I gave up and came back here for support. I knew I could count on you guys to give support even if a member had been absent for a while. It's like coming home after being away on a vacation. I missed you all and hope to be able to stay in touch much better now. I found out that I needed you all....especially those worse off than I am so that I can appreciate what I really have. I've been crying a lot and complaining even more and that is never a good thing, so I came here to lean on my friends for support and to get over feeling sorry for myslef.
Well I guess that is all I needed to say....I just wanted to say hello again and thank you all for accepting me back in to the family.
For those I have not gotten to know yet, I look forward to meeting you and helping in some small way.....beware though....I tend to type books instead of small blips
