  • Sooo many things I'm grateful for...

    The incredible kindness and generosity of people on this board and the new friends I've made who are precious to me.

    My husband. He's not just the best husband, I think through this illness he's achieved saint status or angel 1st class. He'll listen to everything, he'll do anything, he'll get anything, his love and caring are so constant. I am so blessed there really are not words. So many people do not have this and I have never had it before so it really (as corny as it sounds) makes my heart full.

    Dr. Kuhn who was smart enough and had enough integrity to advise me against having my fibroid removed and knowing it was not the cause of what is happening to me. And for referring me to Dr. Varigos who is listening to me and treating me as a person, a whole person, not a bladder or a uterus or worse and considering my health holistically.

    For Ann from the herb shop who dropped my herbs off on her way home just to be kind and save me the shipping fee.

    For my first very own, just mine, new laptop so I can connect again w/ out sitting.

    For my new bed, just got yesterday and it's so comfortable and supportive.

    For being able to afford these things.

    My husband's sense of humor:-)

    For about 2 hours w/ no pain so far today. (Okay, actually on that one I feel like grabbing it off the pain gods viciously as I still see it as an entitlement!)

    Thank you Jill for making this forum and allowing all of us to work toward healing and find each other so we're not so isolated and giving a space for me to share this.

      Thanks for writing that. I have a bunch of similar things to be grateful for (including your friendship ), and I don't spend enough time reflecting on them. Thanks for reminding me.
      Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
      Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

      Peace, Carolyn
