DON'T GET ME WRONG THOUGH SOME DAYS I STRUGGLE WITH THIS BUT NOT LIKE I DID WHEN I FIRST HAD THE SURGERY DONE, I HAVE COME A LONG WAY FROM THE INSECURITIES I ONCE HAD. I AM BLESSED TO BE ALIVE AND VERY THANKFUL FOR THE GIFT OF MY NEW LIFE. I HAVE BEEN HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!!! I HAVE BEEN GOING OUT DANCING, SEEING MY COUSINS BAND PLAY AND I HAVE HAD A FEW DATES, AND ITS WONDERFUL!!! PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA THAT I HAVE THE BAG, EXCEPT ONE INDIVIDUAL THAT I HAVE GONE OUT WITH AND HE HAS NO PROBLEM WITH IT NEITHER.HE THINKS I AM THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN HE HAS LAID EYES ON, AND LET ME TELL YOU ITS A WONDERFUL FEELING TO KNOW THAT EVEN WHEN YOU AREN'T SURE OF YOURSELF AND DON'T FEEL ATTRACTIVE BECAUSE OF THE SITUATION THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU , THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT BEG TO DIFFER!!! AND I FEEL BLESSED ON THIS NEW LEASE ON LIFE. RESPECTFULLY YOURS, BLUZ4GREENY, AKA DAWN

Bluz,
So good to hear from you!! It's been ages since you posted.... I remember when you were asking us about going to see your cousin's band play for the first time and if you could have a drink while you were out!! What a difference in such a short time.. good for you.

Isn't good to get back out and enjoy life again, feeling well and living!!!

Thanks for updating us all. I was wondering how you have been.
