    You are right, Bill and life has a habit of hitting you hardest when you are already down.

    You do have to keep a sense of perspective though and try not to take on the troubles of the whole world. Your own problems are very real to you.

    I'm a survivor which also comes with it's own feelings of guilt but, on the whole, life is what you make of it.

    At the moment? Life is fantastic :Laughing:

    Every day is precious, and you have to make the best of your life, as the saying that comes to mind its not a dress rehersal.

    Just wish I had plenty of dosh then I could really have some fun, until then I will try to have fun with less cash.

    I know a few people with a lot of money but they are as miserable as sin.
    I know people who have a lot less but are happy and content with their lot.

    There are times when we are happy or sad and everyone circumsances are different. But I also think that Happiness is from within, and we have to remind ourselves of that sometimes.

    I know I do

    Bailey you are so right that we have so muchto be thankful for.

    I have been fighting cancer for seven years, still fighting, and I am so grateful for every day I am here to see the daybreak.... I feel guilty for all the wonderful friends who were diagnosed at the same time as myself and whose funerals I have attended, whose prognoses were so much better than my own.

    Those young men who are being brought home in coffins from the war, or without limbs, or mentally affected make me feel very humble.

    Life is very precious and when we lose loved ones we realise just HOW much so. I hope your wife goes from strength to strength and continues to be an inspiration to those around us. Those of us surviving I believe do give hope to newly diagnosed or those currently undergoing chemotherapy when they see how we cope and can laugh again. Big hugs to her. xxxxx

    I also forgot to mention Health, as I know this is also important, as life can throw some wingers at people, and my thoughts are with those who have sufffered or are suffering.

    Now lets get out there and have some sort of fun.

    Pat

    Movan sorry posted this before your post my thoughts are with you too.

    Hee Hee! - and this is actually something that makes me giggle like hell, sorry BUT .....

    The NHS acknowledged some years ago that everyone suffering from a chronic health problem was more prone to depression than the next bloke. Now I'm diabetic, I could have told em that anyway (as a lot of us could, even if we decide that isn't gonna happen to us - I managed to convince meself for well over 30 years in fact LOL) but I thought Oh good, they've admitted it now - there will be improvements 'somehow' in the treatment of all what they call LTC's. No way, Pedro.

    However they have just noticed - and it appears it came as a surprise to them - that they haven't done anything about it and the deadline for it was 3 years ago. So the world and his dog have jumped on this and are now looking into the mental health of diabetics. Hundreds of Medical and Psychology students all over the UK are making this their specialist subject. I belong to a Diabetes forum and it really is constant - and believe you me the Mods stop some of em before they get to the members!

    Would we mind answering a few questions? No. But all these blooming 'surveys' ask questions on the premise that we are already depressed or have a very strange relationship with food - hardly any of them acknowledge the ones of us that are 100% normal !

    If we ignore the questions we can't answer or just keep saying No - then will that 'mean' we are all in denial and iller than we thought?????

    A lottery winner once said, "Winning loads of money will not, in the long run, make an unhappy person happy but will I think, in the long run, make a happy person happier."

    JJ :Smile:

    Is it a Funster who has said "It is not the situations we are in that cause the problems but rather how we react to them..."?
