After being totally unable to function since the first of the year I thought I would never be where I am now. Thanks to every one here I have climbed over all the hurdles and am feeling like there is real hope for normal again. I am still not "normal" in the mornings, but only have to get get thru the first 30 minutes of rising and then the day is okay. I have been able to enjoy going out in the evening and enjoying living again.

I have religiously been paying attention to diet and taking my d, mag, and b's and am able to do things again. I have to brag a little and tell you all I went to see Bob Dylan last night and had a dinner out (pork belly tacos with avocado) and actually wepted with joy at the whole experience. Maybe I should have upped my my magnesium before I went!

I am always reading everyone's story's and just just wanted to thank you all for sharing your experiences and wanted to share mine. For those of you who are new.......hang in there and read all these posts. They will help in many ways, even if you don't immediately relate. Believe it or not, all of the storys I have read have come around to touch me at a time when I least expected it. We are indeed on this this strange voyage together and going to go thru the same experiences together at one time or another.

I think I'm getting a little sappy and weepy again, so will go take some more magnesium and head off to bed. Sweet dreams to all!

Laura,
I am truly thankful you shared your encouraging life changes and also your tender, grateful heart. I was encouraged tonight by your story. And that's what encouragement does....it give courage to the fortunate heart who hears it.

Hi, Laura. So happy for you! To feel "normal" again and be able to do "normal" things is truly a gift that we don't take for granted. Thank you for sharing and being an encouragement to others.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments. I wasn't fishing for them, but sure do appreciate them.

I was hoping someone would have asked about the "pork belly tacos" because I had never heard of them before and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty pork belly is. I bet I live in the wrong part of the country to have been exposed to it before now. I did discover that Cosco sells it and will pick some up next trip.
Yum!

Good for you, Laura.

I remember my first experiences of being able to do things I had not been able to do in a long time - I cried with joy also. I never thought things would improve; but like you said, they do.
