Believe you me I can understand where you are coming from but I am not a supporter, I am a suffer. I understand how hard it can be I am now just getting over a 6 month cycle myself. The question in which I wanted to ask is, how old are your children? I have a daughter 12 years old and she has been one heck of a trooper during this past cycle. I'm sure that if your children would like to talk to someone who really understands what it is like to live with a suffer then Jonalis is your person. I find that when children are able to discuss it among themselves it somehow gets to be somewhat easier for them to go through. I know that there were days when I just wanted to throw my daughter out of the house because she kept asking me questions, always wanting to help. I know that it was hard for her at first but then she started to understand that things wern't her fault. She started to understand that at times she would just need to leave me alone. Also, Margi (she post on the board quite often) wrote a letter to my daughter explaining to her what she goes through as a suffer. The letter that Margi really helped Jonalis during the last months of my cycle. Please Chris, if you need advise or help that is what this board is for. I will add you to my prayer list and pray for you and your family.
