MDJunction to me

imsoblue"I was completely bewildered when I received my diagnosis of HH and cirrhosis. For so many years I had been told that what I was feeling was due to "old age", and I am 61 years old. I knew nothing about hemochromatosis or what to expect and even my family doctor did not have a clue. I found MDJ when I started to search on the internet. I have received so much compassion and education here. I am most grateful that I had the support from the cirrhosis group when I had my first episode of HE. I now know what I need to do to try keep this from happening. (lactulose). I feel very close to the people here. My goal is to educate people about HH and to support those affected by it. I read people's posts and I can just sense when people are feeling that absolute bewilderment. Thank you so much for all that all of you do for others." (imsoblue)

My Awareness Ribbons
  "After diagnosis I didn't know where to go, what to do, or how to live with everything involved. I used to think that I wanted, someday in the far future, to be one that would die, peacefully, in my sleep. Little did I know how close I was to this each and every night. Everyone should learn of the conditions of where their own sleep are and where they can lead. The more you learn the more proactive you can be."

Thoughts of today for survival
Too many conditions, too many problems, and living in "Payton Place" is not where I need to be. Keys to survival include the sharing of inner thoughts, deepest fears, great joys, and extreme lows and learning to let go.
