It is so nice to have a place to come to, that everyone gets it. They understand what we are feeling, they understand the pain, the fear, the frustration. As my surgery draws near, I am terrified. But it did finally hit me Sunday night laying in bed, I might actually get better. How great would that be! Yes, I am scared of the unknowns, but I am so excited for what is to come too! As I have read all the emails that people have sent me over the past few weeks, encouraging me, and just letting me know that they are thinking about me and praying for me, It brings me to tears. With all the frustration that I have gone through with Dr.'s and playing the waiting game, you all on here have been my saving grace and I'm not sure I can thank you all enough.
I feel like when people around me, my support group here, they listen, they encourage but they really don't quite comprehend what is going on. I can easily come on here and vent, or ask questions or even just say Thank you! You all understand, you comprehend it, some of you have experienced the whole 9 yards and some are half way there, and people like me and others, we are just begining. I definately wouldn't have made it this far without this site, and everyone on it!
I thank God that you are here, and us people, us Chiarians :) have a place to come to, to learn, talk, vent, cry, and just get support!
Love to all, and prayers
