Hey everyone, keep 'em coming. It helps to get the pet peeves off your chest whether you're the person with cc or caring for someone who has it.
Joyce, if only...the ONE cure for cancer, which we know isn't possible because of all the different types of cancer and the different ways individuals react to all the treatments. I hope you're doing well.
Barbara, I hope you're finding the strength to get through your days missing Jacques. Thank you for your encouraging words.
I totally agree Colleen, everything is NOT okay. You're right, thank goodness we have each other and this board.
Sarahd, "quick cure" HA. That's part of another pet peeve of mine when people assume because Charlie may look good that he is cured or so much better that they say insensitive things like "Why aren't you working?" not knowing what suffering and hardship he's really going through.
Screaming is good for you Brenda. I know, we never knew we could make so many people feel so good by comparing their lives to ours. So glad Scott is recovering well from his surgery.
Lisa, you don't want to get me started on this one. Even with insurance, we're struggling to pay all the deductibles and out of pocket expenses as I'm sure a lot of people here are also dealing with. I have a friend who is well let's just say it - wealthy. She can't understand why I can't take Charlie to her guru/herbalist/nutritionist/whatever. Well, it costs MONEY. Usually, their rates are very high and insurance doesn't cover them.
All the pet peeves aside, Charlie and our family have been blessed beyond comprehension with many prayers, much support, and many positive things, one of which is this site and all the caring people on it. I pray positive things for you all too.
