Wow - hell of a story. For all the pain you've gone through, you probably know yourself and your own strength better than most of us.
Thanks for posting - hope you keep feeling better.
"There are dreams of love, life, and adventure in all of us. But we are also sadly filled with reasons why we shouldn't try. These reasons seem to protect us, but in truth they imprison us. They hold life at a distance. Life will be over sooner than we think. If we have bikes to ride and people to love, now is the time." -Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (1926-2004)
