I have been thinking of what I take for granted when things are going "well". I think the main ones for me are my family and friends. I also  take for granted that I am going to be able to get up and eat without pain and have energy to live my life, etc. It seems like when we can't do these things it makes us realize what should really matter mostin life. One of  my best friends came and took my son today and will keep him  overnight if necessary so I can go to the doctor with my husband later this afternoon. Sometimes it just helps having people listen that understand and don't judge us either when we feel bad like "oh what did you do this time", "what have you been eating etc.?". I am thankful for the support of people on this board too.

Hi You are so lucky to have someone there to look after your little one I worried about my 15 year old now 16 when I was in the hospital .You"ll get things worked out soon I hope and I am glad you have someone to look after you at home it helps to have someone just take over and see we get the help we need I felt useless to myself and am so glad my sister was there for me at Xmas to just take over and see I got the help I needed .How old is your son? Be thinking of you and waiting to hear your up and at em again. lots of love gail
