You are a true friend. :-)
This short post from you is not only beautifully inspirational...but completely insightful. There's a lot of wisdom expressed there.
Yes, I am finally doing something (this) for myself...a few years back, I didn't even have the will to go on...or to even care about my future.
...and yes...the strength is comeing to me whenever I need it.
About a month ago, I could not even envision myself playing an active, productive role in society ever again...because my mental condition, and fear of being around other people (as well as my doubts in myself, and my ability to overcome the fatigue) was paralizing.
I've now got a job, that I've been at for three weeks now. I don't know what it is that 'clicked' inside me, but I am now considerable more determined than I was only a short while ago.
Things are going smoothly...Yes, I've really been noticing how I've slowed down over the past week...It is taking its' toll on me, that much is painfully clear...but I'm still getting some type of fullfillment out of this experience.
Thank you for your words, and your confidence, Freda.
