    Jane, you have spoken about this issue so wisely and so well, I feel like you were reading my mind! Thank you for laying it all out there, and let's hope more people understand what a "process of subtraction" living with an invisible illness is. Thank you! *hugs*

    Thank you for so bravely and honestly expressing how difficult it is to try to find a balance, when even what some might consider little things can take up the only available energy leaving nothing left over. The endless cycles of days that stream by in a fog of pain, exhaustion, depression, and valiant attempts to do what is possible is often not recognized for the huge achievement it really is. The will to try again tomorrow is worthy of accolades, kudos, love and support and yet most people have no conception of the magnitude of sacrifice those with invisible disabilities make each and every day. You are a true champion and you tell the story that so many live with.

    You are a blessing, even when you don't see the amazing affect you have on my world, the lives of our children, and the hearts and souls of the people you touch. Don't ever stop writing, you have a gift to share and it does help!

    With love and blessings always

    Carmen

      Thank you, Sweetie. If nothing else, I can rest assured that someone in this big world knows the challenges, can comfort me when the pain gets too much and I have to collapse in an uncharacteristic heap of tears. You have no idea how blessed that is, to just yield to it and not have to hide it.

      Thank you for being my steadfast love and support. I love you. xxxx
