I love Having Friends You All mean a lot to me thank you all for your support. Great News Praise God No blood was found in my stool test I did just got the great news yesterday. I will be swichting family doctors and going to a diffrent family doctor in another town because my family doctor moves really slow and does not help much. I know that some people beleive I should speak up and tell my doctor how I feel. I am afraid to do that and I do not say much about things until it gets a lot worse than it should but I tell other people how it makes me feel it is like I realize I need to speak up for myself but that is very hard to do when I was not beleived by workes in foster care homes I grew up in and into adult care homes.

Glad your test results were good. Hope your new Dr. works out betterfor you.
Learning to speak up for yourself can be a hard thing to do but it is really worth doing. I have struggled with that problem for most of my life. My Dad was the only one who was right about anything.

Hi Amy,

What's important is that you are taking good care of yourself, doing what you need to do to get the best care possible. I hope things go well with the new doctor.

And congratulations on your test results!

You are a special person. I can tell that you have a kind heart. Thank you for being my friend.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

Amy you are a wonderful person who deserves to be heard. I understand about your upbringing and not being believed. My dad didn't believe me too. So I know how that feels for me. Not good.

Perhaps you can work with a counselor to help you to be more assertive. I learned to do that too. I don't do it perfectly by any sense of the imagination, but I am more assertive now.

Thank you you have a wonderful weekend, and I will be starting counseling soon, hopefully I will learn how to deal with stress better and be more assertive too. I am going to college to be a Christian Counselor, I am just about halfway down with my assocaitaetes degree.
