    Each word you have written here is valuable. It's valuable to the people who read it, and a treasure for you.

    Why not print it out? Then you can save it and have a piece of yourself to hold in your hands. Your profile carries all your writing back to when you became a new member. You can print your posts out and put them in order in a binder. If you are thinking of writing a book about your condition, it may already be half written with what you have here.

    This diary tells a lot about who you are, and is a record of your journey here. You can flip through it and see how far you have come, all the strengths you've developed, all the hardships and struggles you have fought with, and the people you have been there for at the right time.

    Your children or loved ones may be helped by reading it too. And if you have friends with this illness, or who simply want to know what it is like, you let them read some of it to help them to understand.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Good to save other people's posts in the binder too. Sometimes they say it just right, better than we could on our own. ((( ))) Shannon
