Woundedspirit,
I'm so sorry times are bad for you again. Please take comfort in the fact you're not alone and all of us on here can help you through the bad times.... Without this forum I could quite easily loose it totally.
I'm a day out of LIS and the pain is so hard...

There will be good days and light at the end of the tunnel.
Please don't lose hope and believe that god can help us xxxxx

Thank you Rachael. There is comfort in knowing we are not alone. This forum has helped me countless times. I have been following your posts and I know your pain and uncertainty. I am so hoping you will fully heal. LIS has such a high success rate. I try daily to renew my faith that this will end one day for me. I am sending you healing wishes from my heart. Keep us posted. :) xxxx

I find myself alone more and more. In part because my children are grown, in part because of my condition and in part because I am discovering an increasing intolerance for meaningless people, places and things. I am going through the fire where people of integral substance are forged. Let me proceed in faith and courage that I may come out the other side a better human being.

Hi wounded.
Glad things have improved for you. I've been thinking about you and I'm praying for you. Do you have close friends and family that know about this? I have a friend who has similar issues and when we both realised, it helped to chat to each other about it..... You definitely realise who and what is important when you've been through pain and loss. I have suffered big losses and it will hopefully make me stronger. Do you have hobbies and make time for relaxation? I'm definitely doing things differently and I'm going to treat myself more and have a better work/life balance. I can't be happy and content if I'm only trying to make other people happy.

Wounded you are strong
I will pray for you all day long
Please don't lose hope
All of us are here for you, and we will never leave you Nope!!!!
