Topic: New Avatar
In honor of this new discussion board format, thank you Rick!, I decided to add an avatar to my profile today. It won't make sense to many who see it so I wanted to explain the background.
The Chinese character in my avatar is the symbol meaning crisis. When I was first diagnosed in 2003 my Chinese medicine practitioner asked if I knew of the Chinese view of crisis. I did not.
My understanding is that the Crisis symbol/character is composed of two other Chinese characters. One meaning danger and the other opportunity. I have always remembered this and tried to use it in my battle against this disease.
My apologies if this post is under an incorrect topic. I have actually been a member of this site for a good while but I was not sure where to post this. Rick, please move it if you would like it elsewhere.
