Wow, Kitty thank you for sharing you story. It is very coincidental that I just wrote about you issues for my blog I publish in 2 weeks. I will send you a link so you can see this coming post since it is mostly about my feelings of kinship with out illnesses. Chronic diseases are bastards to live with, and the mental toll is often misunderstood and/or ignored. I am just now coming to gripes with my mental degeneration I face with my MS.
