Thanks Babs, Rosie, Marji, and Hippi for all your encouraging words.

Hippi, I hope your tummy is better. What's going on with your brain fog? Do you think you have a bug or could you be going into a flare? I hope you feel better this week!

Love,

Pat

Pat - that was nice of you.  I wish I could still write in flare. I tend to hide.  Realize it takes a lot out of you to write, the effort was very sweet.  I hope you make it through this one okay.  Rest.  Funny, how much resting helps.  When I go through the flares without a major hit, I almost feel guilty (like I got away with something I shouldn't have).  We'll see - I'm on my one day at a time kick.  Remember they come and, thankfully, they go.  I'll pray yours goes quickly.  As well as everyone elses.  Can't believe so many of us have gotten hit recently.  Tough year.  The down side to the end of summer I guess.  I always get it this time of year, that and after the holidays.  Nothing like stress to do you in. 
 
Well, on that note, take it real easy and I hope to hear from you soon.  Hugs - Kristin

Kris, thanks so much. I dug myself a hole and have rested in it all day. I've wondered myself why so many of us are feeling especially bad and yes, it has been a tough year. I've had a sad day today as I got word that one of my closest friends passed away last night. It makes me so sad but I realize how much I have to be grateful for. Thanks for helping to pick me up.

Love,

Pat
