You guys really are amazing I don't understand all these terms and illnesses and stuff but they sound so awful i can't even begin to imagine what you guys have to cope with! As iv said before my boyfriend (as of only 3 months ago) has chronic immune fatigue and i thought this was pretty bad, i mean it's pretty much screwed up his education and future already and he's only 18. It's been pretty hard to cope with all this and he doesn't seem to understand that shutting me out of that side of his life really doesn't help. However my poxy emotional problems don't even begin to compare with some of the problems iv read about on here! it also fills me with amazing awe that so many of you have so much faith in God. I am a Catholic and from bereavement iv experienced i know that faith is sometimes the only thing that can keep you going. But i know so many people that just think bad things in the world prove there is no God and i think it's wonderful that there are still people out there who do still have faith like me! You are all totally amazing, whether ill or affected by others being ill like me and you're all going to be in my prayers. And i also hope that when you're all praying to be helped and guided and protected that you all remember to thank God, not just for success and survival but for simple things like friendships and support like what you've all found here, for families and for the beautiful world and so much more I'm truly touched by all of you God made you all for a reason!
