Thank you for a response to my blog. It is always good to hear we are not alone in our sufferings. I have had stuff going on for 6 years off and on, not knowing when this will end. I am trying to do it on my own, no surgeries whatsoever, but when it never ends, it sometimes feels hopeless. But, as always, I pick myself up and move on to the next day. I started feeling better yesterday, I think it's finally done and my schedule can restart on my healthy trail. Younger friends have just had their period stop, that was my dream but it was not going to be for me obviously. This dreary weather isn't helping my emotional state either. I will have to start using my SAD lamp soon, it has helped the last 2 winters.....staying positive is what I always want but I am only human, so will do my best from day to day!
