Sometimes the little things in life makes getting through the tough times easier to do. My friend has CH's and I know that sometimes all I can do is be there on IM (Instant Messenger) for her or go over to her house for a cup of coffee and chat for an hour or more. No...it doesn't take the pain away, but knowing that someone cares makes it do-able. Having small children sometimes is the best way. I remember when I was very ill (Ulcerative Colitis - 19 yrs.)just being able to rock my daughters made my days bearable. All of us - CHer's and supporters have crosses to bear and it makes it easier knowing that there are people "out there" who care. I am hoping you have photos at work of your family. Having pictures around to stir up good memories will give you plenty of reasons to go on. Just a thought.
