First of all, let me give you a big ((HUG)). You deserve it! You are a strong person. You've tackled so much for someone so young.
During my bad days, I lay in bed and question myself, what did I do to deserve this? I've been diagnosed just a few months ago, so this illness is new to me. I'm still learning about it. I'm still learning how to cope with it. I don't like to complain too much or ask for help. I have my mom who's willing to help me with anything, but, there are times when that isnt enough. My boyfriend has been understanding and supportive. There are times when I look at myself in the mirror, and cry. So much has changed so quickly. I look like a different person due to the hair loss and some weight gain. I feel like a totallly different person. I'm 30, but, my body feels like it belongs to a 90 year old. Fortunately, my medications seem to be helping me. I still have those bad days though. But I guess its something that I have to get used to. I've had this stupid headache since friday. All I want to do is stay home with the shades down. There has been times when I don't answer my phone calls. It does get depressing. :cry:
I've learned that sometimes life hands you situations when all you can do is put one foot in front of the other and live moment to moment.
You've joined the right place. Everyone is very supportive, understanding, friendly, and oh so empathetic. Whenever you need a shoulder to cry on or a friend to laugh with, you can talk to me/us... Welcome to our Family!
