Deb Posted April 9, 2004 Report Share Posted April 9, 2004 I can hardly believe how supportive all of you are to each other, and now to me. As I read through what you've been writing, I realize all over again how fortunate I truely am. I'm 46, I've had a full and happy life so far, I have three grown children, I've had a successful career, I have a wonderful, thoughtful, and supportive husband, oh, and two of the best Golden Retrievers around! . One of you wrote today that you used to be the most optimistic person, you'll be that way again. Start by thinking about the little things. The first time I walked down the steps without having to think about it was a HUGE milestone and I whooped and hollered when I realized I had done it. Getting out of bed and not having to go and sit down immedietly, taking a shower by myself, sleeping through the night without waking up soaking wet or burning up, there are so many things that you can be happy about. Learn to celebrate the small things and you'll start to see the old you return. Deb Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
