Thanks very much!
I did have a big flare in 1999 and struggled to get back a lot of my capacity over 2yrs. Then my latest and more likely the permanent position I started in 2007 , with the diag only 2011. So I have had a long time to analyse my situation without others input and it has been a survival thing I went through and a wonderful husband. I think a lot of my getting things together I have done and gone through so that my life with Colin is always full. I also believe that I don't have the right to take out my pain or frustration on him or anyone I believe I don't have the right to make someone elses life miserable I always can find something positive out of everything negative. I think I started that attitude with my disabled son, as I wouldn't be who I am today without going through my life with him.
I think we all have a story to tell as to how we are today and what was a major impact on our approach to life.
For every dark cloud there is a silver lining!
