Why dont we help each other with ideas that worked for us?
My dream was to one day be a music dj on the radio. I was unable to do this at college but I pursued this idea at home on my home stereo and it helped me alot. I was able to write scripts, when inspired, read the scripts aloud onto a cassette tape, combine a variety of music, and have a finished project I was proud of and I coud share with others. The doctors friends and family sat spellspound surprised I could actually come up with rational thoughts etc due to the lupus and medications. It turned out to be a great hobby I am really proud of. It began in the middle late 80's and went to 2002.
Please look at your dreams differently not as if the dreams were crushed but they took a different direction.
