Lilymop, I think we all understand. It's tempting to say, What's the point? Things aren't as they used to be. I have nothing left.
I try to remind myself that, logically, the sensible response is not to give up but to get as much pleasure as possible from the years ahead.

Easy to say!

Sometimes things gets worse before they get better right?

Definitely. When I joined this forum, I was absolutely certain that nothing was going to work, that I'd never feel better. I was stunned when those first few glimpses of hope appeared. The people here are amazing. Watching how they handle often horrific things with such grace, it really makes you think, Oh maybe I don't need to be so hard on myself, after all.

Same thing here. When I joined PC, it was as a last-ditch, final-hoorah reach for something that could save my life. I was done. But I thought I'd give it a try. Things are still hard, but I am not where I was on that day I joined--thanks to all of you. Thank you all for helping me when I could not help myself.
