    Sometimes I feel this illness has taken everything from me that I value most - my joy of life, the ability to make a difference, the strength to care. There is nothing left but the endless struggle, the illusion that tomorrow will be better. Who but a saint could go on?

    Ana,
    Maybe you don't see it, but I've got a hunch that you are a saint. I feel the same way that you do. I've learned that joy is found when the pain lets up every once in a while. I've suffered a lot too. We all here have suffered a lot. That is why we need eachother. You can't do this alone.

    How do you know that you can't make a difference to anyone? Just being a good person is making a difference in this cruel world. You do want to go on. You have the strength. I find strength in my faith. I hope you can too.

    I often hope for a pill to put this into remission. Many people report that this illness gets better over time.

    blessings
