Welcome, Oceangirl. I hope you will enjoy it here.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  Shouldn't I be invincible by now?

Yes, yes ... welcome, welcome! I'm sorry you're very sick as well ... but truly admire your attitude! Of course you're right ... worry doesn't do anyone any good!!! I have to admit to perhaps overindulging in that one though. I still struggle with knowing I can't control this disease. Only make wise choices!
