    were finally approved for disability? I know it sounds crazy, I am excited to have an income, but.... To see all that stuff in writing kind of crushes those secret hopes that we probably all have in the back of our minds that maybe someday we will be able to be productive again.

    I read the report and I said, this person sounds terribly sick. Oh yeah, that's me and I am. I know it sounds crazy, but to see all those things in print just makes me a little more depressed. Did I think I was going to run the Boston Marathon next year or what?

    I finally just put the papers in a drawer so I wouldn't obsess. There was one bright spot. The papers said I weighed about 40 lbs. more than I do now.

    I hope when they find our cure, it has a side effect of making us look and feel 20 years younger. Then, I could make up for lost time.
