Hi Emily-Unfortunately, due to other medical problems, other than D, I am unable to continue on the care team. I am also moving in early August to a new home and am quite busy with that. I will show up on TuD whenever I can and welcome new members to this special site. It has been very rewarding being on the care team. Catlover

Emily, look at the picture that 'lots of shots' put on my home page. I have been laughing so hard, it is way funny. To better understand this place. While I worked for the city the ambulance was called out to Indian Heights for a gun shot wound. A woman had a corn on her foot and it was hurting so badly she got all liquored up with Jack Daniels and got a shot gun. She aimed it up with the intent of blowing the corn off her foot. In fact she hit it. and in fact she did remove the corn. She also removed over half her foot. She said upon pulling the trigger and seeing what happened, she yelled,

"Oh S***, I shouldn't done that"

hahahaha the EMTs were laughing so hard they almost did not get her too the ER. This place is just, well, its a different world out there. We supplied ambulance services out there for years, as well as sanitary sewers and overflow fire protection.

Hi Emily,

Your post on facebook came across my page the other day. You were having the dreaded day of I am sick of dealing with D monster day. We all have those days. Some of us have those days for months, and even years. Who can blame us? It is a 24/7/365 disease that never gives you a break and is completely misunderstood by most of the general public.

But I know you rediscovered your strength. I know that you put on your big girl panties and got on with it. Because that is what we do. We are strong, because we have to be. And you are stronger because you encourage others. And together, while we might not see that cure, we are still fighting for the cure for the generations that will come after us. We have to because #wecannotwait!

I just wanted you to know that I hear girlfriend, and was hoping you day got better.
