Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I’m so overrun by disabilities (EDS for one) and it’s been so emotionally and psychologically traumatic (of course, not to mention physically) for me that I almost always feel as though I don’t know my head from my behind. Dreadful! I’m so needy and under-educated about the complexities and dumbfounding magnitude of my rapidly declining health that I would not have imagined that I could possibly have made a diff to anyone else. I appreciate you saying what you did. It wasn’t so long ago when I was uber independent and had a life that I truly enjoyed and was quite content with – boy, am I in stark contrast to that now. Ultimately, I think that I’ll be able to ‘survive/thrive’, in whatever way my body will allow, once I am able to figure out a way to be a helpful/meaningful/competent person in whatever way God sees fit. Of course, I’ve also got the daunting task of figuring out how (my personal concoction) to manage/maintain my already ridiculously low level of physical function. Thank you, again, for letting me know about the potentially helpful info in my post. Means a LOT to me right now. God Bless.
