wow, sorry to see you boys were thrown into such a loop trying to decipher the meaning of my post.
Should i even clarify it? what i meant was, be thankful you can have some level of dignity and grace with what you suffer. There is always someone else who is worse off, and in my book that is anyone who had to take a permanent disability from work, I dont think they chose their path anymore than we did. It doesnt make us "better " people, or stronger or even more able to cope, we are all equal and just dealing with the hands we have been dealt to the best of our ability. So often around here it seems to turn into a contest of who suffers more, and who has got it worse,
Lets remember this was set up as a SUPPORT group.
I dont know if you meant to come off the way you did,
but in no way did i feel supported expressing my opinion.
