Vulnerable

Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS/WED? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

I am amazed at how easily we humans point fingers when it is something "we" wouldn't do, yet expect compassion for our own issues (this group excepted!). Why can we not be compassionate at ALL times. Almost none of us try to be sick, fat, drunk, or whatever else it is. No one woke up one day and said, gee, I want to be something that makes me a pariah of the rest of the world - I mean, seriously!

Good point, I need to not define myself as I think others may be. Some are, but probably some aren't!

Well said, all of it!
