Just a quick note to say hi! I just read your summary of the last 7 years. No one can ever really know how another one feels but I really could relate. My family actually had 9 deaths in 5 years. Numerous medical issues, 2 family members with severe mental break downs. I really have no idea how we all managed to make it. I am not trying to one upmanship. I only wanted you to know I could really relate. With all the crisis in my life I stopped saying the next day or week would be better. I started to say it will be different. By saying that I would not sit myself up for further frustrations. You certainly have my respect for still being with us. I hope you will find the support and encourage you need thru these different groups and forums. I will keep you in my prayers.
Geez, you have been through ALOT! Tons of surgery - bad fortune on the botched up bits - that would really suck. Sorry your dad passed away, do you still have your mum?
Yes, I intend & pray for a super healthy & full of fortune year for this 2009. I too, have had struggles in particular over the last 4yrs. I had my first stay in hospital last year for 7 days for emergency appendicitus (Other than childbirth 12yrs ago). I had to contend with a very abusive boyfriend who became f*cked on drugs & eventually went to jail-which was my saviour to keep him away from me....anyway, then my best friend - decided she wanted nothing to do with me & stayed very very good friends with my ex. That totally shattered me I suppose.
So yes, lets think positive for this new year of 09.
Just a quick note to say hi, & thank you for your kind words. Best wishes & good fortune for the New Year ok, Cheers.
