Oh Yuck Dawn.....I'm sending hugs and prayers your way. You were so helpful to me when I was at my wits end and trying to sort this stuff out and try to get some kind of understanding which was about
a year ago now.
I was talking to hubby about
you last night and he feels bad too and also sends thoughts your way. (I relay alot of the info to him from the forum which has really helped over this past year in his understanding and dealing with this inconsistent and unpredictable illness. Things could be better but they could be a great deal worse too. So we'll take what we got at the moment.)
We are all connected by this forum via the internet and our strokes on the keyboard but also in our hearts. It's odd how we can not know each other on a personal level but actually do connect in a personal way to try to help each other. I don't think there could be a better support network than here for our UC.
