Hey Big Sis
I back you up 100%, I have learned so much from the members of Healing Well and seen so many come here in deep despair, over the months they blossom into a person who has accepted the disorder and learned to cope with it. They are truly an inspiration. So many I would like to list but it would be rather Long
I have watched Lyn battle her illnesses and never complain, she accepts her burdens and fights her way thru to the other side, only to get hit with another challenge. I know she gets weary and would like to just rest, but to lay down and not fight is to give up and she is a fighter............Proud of you my mentor, my Big Sis.
I have met members here with newly diagnosised diseases, Cancer, MS, Diabetes and yes many of the mental health disorders. To watch them go from stunned, to how do I beat this to fighting the battle makes me feel very humble and so lucky to have met them. They are the heroes. God Bless everyone of you and you all know who you are.

I love this poem and will share it with each of you today
J I Want to Be a Child Again J
I want to be a child again, 6 years old is good.
I want to once again think that candy is better than money, because you can eat candy.
I want to go to McDonalds and still believe it is a 5 star restaurant.
I want to go outside without worrying how my hair looks.
I want to go back to the days when music was clean and pure.
I remember when I was innocent, and I thought that everyone was happy because I was.
I want to distance myself from the complexities of life, and once again become excited over the small things.
I want to ride my bike all the way to the park, without worrying that I will get kidnapped.
I want to live simple again, I don't want my days to be full of computers crashing, mountains of paperwork on my desk, and how to survive a few more days during the month when there is no money left in my check book.
I want to believe in the power of laughter, of a hug, a handshake, of a kind word, of truth, justice or peace.
I want once again to believe in the human race.
I wish that each one of us could live a part of that child we all have inside and do not let ourselves be dragged down by the society which surrounds us.
If we all thought and acted a little like children, don't you think a lot of things in the world would be different?
ENJOY LIFE AND BE HAPPY!
REMEMBER LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO SUFFER!
