  1. Hey all. Still doing very badly. Today is the first day that I've felt up to doing what little I did do here; thanks for being here, BTW. Now have cardio and pulmono docs added to the list. Something has got to give. Best wishes and Namaste. Zen

      Sending lots of positive thoughts and comfort your way, Zen. You are really missed.

  2. so, so very grateful for some time (minutes, hours, who knows?) without SI. grateful for ya'll keeping this thread going 508 PM - It is creeping back and I will go now.
  3. Fewer tears today, but still lots of SI and other issues. I feel like I am dying from the inside out, body and soul. Peace to all, even if it is only for a few moments.
  4. You might try Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction if you have not already. It was very hard for me to "get the hang of it," but once I did, it helped me tremendously. Tons of good free info about it, MBSR, on the web, especially by Dave Potter(?Porter) and Kabat-Zinn (sp). There are several styles of meditation taught in MSRB and they vary teacher to teacher, except I think Potter really tries to follow Zinn. For example, I can rarely do the body scans as they can be triggering for people with trauma issues, but I have been able to do all the others. Whatever path you choose will be right for you. Namaste, Zen
  5. Afraid that if I share the tears will come and never stop. Namaste
  6. My DF family who always welcomes me back with open arms, yet never says anything but a kind word when I was so overwhelmed that I could not participate. Diet Cherry Cola The few cough-free hours I have some days.

  9. "There's no coming to consciousness without pain ...One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." Carl Jung "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." Carl Jung
  10. Ain't it the truth! No really, I firmly believe this and it helps me give some higher purpose for my trials. It usually helps me get through my own storm; I always get more back than I give in these situations. Thanks for the great quote 20!
