HI I just wanted to say how very happy I am that your health and energy is improving! That is so wonderful - that you can now walk round trip - a half a mile to the store. That is fantastic!!! I take 2 of the supplements you take and am keeping the other 2 in mind to try at some point. I love seeing your posts - they're always so kind and supportive - and you give so much here. Like with katemac, you gave her such great advice about going to the E.R. right away. In a very late response to something you wrote to me about staying away from toxic relatives - I am glad that you are protecting yourself. I feel sad too that I can't have family closeness - a good kind. I hated what your relatives said to you about being a hypochondriac!!! THat makes me furious. My brother said to me that he will not believe I have anything wrong until he sees pure scientific proof. Same thing. Who needs that? I love the way your 'eccentricity' is 'individuality' - being a unique person. I read somewhere that you said you pick up things from the road that might cause accidents on your way to the store. That is such a wonderful image - it makes me happy just picturing it. I'm so glad that you're here on the board. I've been thinking that for quite a while and am glad to finally be able to tell you. God bless.
