I was feeling positive today, as recently Roch and I have been able to get out and do things - get out and enjoy life a bit and my post was going to be pretty much about that and about where we went and what we did - and I'll still talk about that, but maybe in a separate post. Because I have to say first how absolutely overwhelmed I'm feeling just now. I haven't blogged for over a week - I haven't even checked my blog in over a week. I go in today and I have 19 followers and six new comments! I was pleased with the feature in Thumbprint (the MND Association quarterly magazine ) and of course I was aware that people would read about us. Truth to tell, I was feeling a bit bashful about it all. Thank you, thank you to everyone who left a comment. I feel proud to be counted among you, those who are caring for loved ones with MND. Thank you for sharing your feelings and talking about your lives and your loved ones and what it's like for you - and for giving me some really useful advice and tips (Eileen - what a relief to know there is help when migraine strikes, I can't tell you...) Alison, Sue, Mike and Helen - I feel like I've made so many new friends!
Like I say, today started out as a good day and I was feeling pretty positive, but meeting all of you has given me extra strength. I may have quoted her before, but my mother says 'There's nothing good about mnd' and she's right, of course, but out of bad things, can come good. You've all made me feel good today, despite mnd.
