Life altering journey

You are so right about this being a life altering journey-in many good ways and in some bad ones. I, too, have been touched by people that offer to help. Something like this can renew your belief in the goodness of people–not from pity, but from just wanting to help. I bet your family continues to be supportive and careful with you. Sometimes I get really flustrated with what I cannot do now and the impact this disease has had on my life, but I try to remember this side as well. Having been really independent for so long, I would not know how much people want to help if not for this illness. A little sweet lemonade from the lemons.
