Thank you all for your replies. Sometimes it's nice just to "talk" to others and know that I am not alone!!
To Sillynini: Please read my post, "Anyone Else Like Me?" on the General Health board. I am looking for someone "like me" whom I can correspond with. I don't know what other health issues you are dealing with, but it sounds like you and I have at least two of them in common! (unfortuneately
) And may I say that I am very sorry for your loss, thank God my mother is still with me and healthy. But, I have had cancer myself, and know a lot of people who are fighting it. I also just this morning lost a good friend of mine, though to heart disease rather than cancer. She was 46 years older than me, but she was like having a bonus Grandmother.
God Bless You All!
