One of our brothers (Oncas - Jim) posted the below in response to another of our brothers thread. I've reposted it a number of times as to me his words are what our family is here on HW
It's an ugly disease that has brought us all together. At first blush it would seem that this disease is our only common denominator.
Truth be told .. it is not.
Compassion, and the desire to assist with each other's struggles is the real adhesive in this room. There is a limitless reserve of experience, intellect and sympathy within this brotherhood. Never hesitate to draw from the well.
Stay the course brother .. we will carry you if you fall.
You will find as so many of us have, Jim's words are so so true!
If it was not for our family here quite honestly I do not know what I would have done. As you may notice from some of my topics, I still rely on our family for experience, intellect and hand holding.
