Shaken, Met with skepticism... hmmmm this is something I have kept to myself now is probably a good time to mull this one over. There is that sense of self, quilt, hopelessness, we have developed over quite a few years that even though we have an illness with a name, that hope can be fleeting... it ...

Dear Randy, Pain and illness are like rough calleous hands peeling layers off our body and soul. It opens the pathways to inner doubts as to what it is to feel just right. The mind wanders trying to find some sense of direction. Is it lack of information? Certainly the feeling of isolation feeds one...
