Valerie's Outcome

Pain takes energy

It hurts to be touched

Learning to live with it

I hate to complain, but . . .

We focus on today

We both had depression

Rest and emotions

The whole family in pain

I hate to complain, but . . .

You hate to be seen as a complainer. Especially when you're alive and so many others with your diagnosis are dead. But I've have a fairly good prognosis now. It has been two and a half years. I really had to focus on quality of life issues. I'm very glad to be alive. I think nobody questions that. Now I want to deal with these other things that are interfering with my enjoyment of the life I have.
