Hello All
Well in the spring of 2008 while I was losing weight, didn't want to get out of bed, full of aches and pains and depression there was one thing that kept me going.  My 18 year old son got a nice part in a film called WILL that was shooting in Austin Texas.  His phone calls every day were the one thing I looked forward to.  I also vowed I would get better so I would see the film when it was released.  Well, now, a year and a half later and after lot of herx and bad days I am having more good days than bad.  The movie is out, It is now called BANDSLAM.  My son plays BUG the Bass player. It has received very good reviews and it is rated PG but is so well done  everyone will enjoy. The movie role lead to more work. My son also plays Damon on the HBO show HUNG that plays on Sunday nights.  I guess that puts an end to my anonymity.  Sorry if this seemd like a shameless plug.  But when The Lyme is really making your life miserable find one thing to help you through the day and know you will feel better soon.

You must be very proud of your son and for sure I will see the movie I'm glad you mentioned it. I like the title Bandslam better, has more meaning. 

It's also good news that you're feeling better, something we all like to hear.

Hey Saxamar,
Your are right about losing your anonymity!! But, Oh well!!
You are so right about grabbing a hold on to something that means a lot to you!! I have to keep doing that as well.
Although we do not have cable or sattalite (sp?) - by choice - I will definitely look for the movie your son is in!!! And Congrats to you & your son!!!

Wow! That is amazing! You must be so very proud of your son. I will definitely look into viewing this movie. I'm glad you had something to hang on to that made you happy. We need that in our lives.
