    Hello all. I hope you all had a lovely easter! I just wanted to say how much this board has truly helped me. I have been bedridden for three long months and friends have stopped calling. My biggest support is my mom and shes great but i was feeling so isolated from the world because I can hardly get out of bed. Then i decided i needed to do something diffrent so i wouldn't become deppressed, and I made a laying spot on the floor with the mouse and keyboard next to me and found this website. Everyone of my posts people have replied, and seriously, each reply always makes my day and makes me so happy.Thank you all so much!!! you have really helped me through this!!!!! Peace..ZOe

    It is great to have a connection with those who have felt and are feeling what we go through. I have found the same happiness here, feeling much less isolated. Best wishes in your quest for wellness.

    I like your spirit! Hope to hear more from you. I can't come here everyday but when I can, I do and like you I find this website to be such a great support. I admire your mindset to change things for the better. That one small step from the bed to the laying spot on the floor was a victory and I pray you will have many more as you communicate with the people here. They have much to give and are so willing to help. You can ask just about anything here and someone will relate to you and share their experience & knowledge. We are all so different but we all have one common goal...to make our life better inspite of our illness. Here's to better days for all of us. Your name is a perfect reminder of this. My best to you.

    I have a wonderful Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Zoe. As you probably know, your name means "Life" in Greek. I can tell by your post, that no matter how weak your body may be right now, your spirit is still very much full of life. Zoe is a very good name for you! Keep on hanging in there.,

    You are a real Trooper! I too admire your spirit!

    It is hard to lose our friends due to our limitations.
    You are wise to reach out. We need to in order to feel connected to others.

    Are you starting to feel any better yet? I hope you will start to feel stronger each day.

    Love to you dear one,

    and the members! You sure sound like a fighter.

    I hope you get well soon, and are able to do all those things you would like to do with your friends.

    Take care, and come visit with us as often as you want, we are all glad to know we have helped in some small way.

    You have made my day with your post!

    Shalom, Shirl

    I'm happy for you that you found this great message board. I try to look at the postings every day but some days I just can't make it upstairs to get to the computer. I don't always reply, not as much as I should anyway, but I don't know what I would do without the support and information that I've gotten from this board. I am glad you figured a way to use your computer, smart girl!! I'm glad you've got your Mom there for emotional support.
