Howdy Bubble! (is that your real name or a nickame?) Welcome to DC!

I think your family loves you! Yes there are lots of things which can and do go wrong with our bodies. It's called life in the real world.

I know that well, as I have Diabetes t2, Kidney disease, ministrokes, osteo arthritis, IBS, Fibromyalgia, and have balance problems due to ministrokes.

The lady I am hugging was my beloved bride "Jem", and she had many more problems. She was blind due to retinitis pigmentosa at age 14, Then she had heart problems, Diabetes t2, COPD, Kidney diseaxe, GERD, Lupis (SLE), RA, Fibro, and a lot of other little problems.

Jem had a lot of "medical Challenges" as she referred to them, but she didn't let it sour her as a person. We both remained hopeful happy and positive to the end of her life. She passed from this life in July 2010 after being married for about 2.5 years.

I pray you don't let your condition or your the conditions of the rest of your family get you down. It's easy to have a pity party for your self and your family. But I pray you don't remain there long. Be about living your life as best you can with your condition.

I pray God's richest blessings upon you and yours

James Baker
