Elaine has been a great friend since I began posting to this board a few months ago. She has told me a number of times she'll be a punching bag for me. I have written long e-mails to her, and I wonder how she puts up with it sometimes. I'm sure there's nothing like getting an e-mail from who is hitting a low point in either their day, week, month, or life. I know I have wanted to write her a few times this last week after I started hit 8's and 9's while my wife was back east for her sister's wedding. That wouldn't have been so bad except I was watching the kids, the abortives (Imitrex & O2) weren't working, and there was no way I would risk taking pain killers and being unable to deal with any problems appropriately. Considering how much she was posting to the message board, I figured she was busy enough, and didn't need to be used as a punching bag, that I could survive a few days more.
All I have to say is a great big thanks to Elaine. It does help to have a friend to talk to when you hit those bad spots. Someone who understands why you want to yell and scream about the pain, to cuss and cry because there is nothing else you can do. Again, thank you, Elaine.
