    Gut, that is fabulous news- my mom did great just like you- but she now has a mysterious addiction to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! (That was her comfort while going through it all) But she also had a renewed energy that made up for it- she has been able to work off the pounds. Here's to your continued remission! Reese's Cups all around!
    Go Tigers!

    Congratulations, Gutmutter! So I guess you are officially a cancer survivor now. All the best.

    That's so awesome, Gutmutter. I'm very happy to hear that you're doing better. You're very strong and I wish you nothing but the best.


    My news kind of pales in comparison, but I thought it was worth mentioning as I thought it was good news. Before the break, I came out to my friends and I was overwhelmed by their comfort and support, not to mention, I found out that one of my friends is having similar struggles. It's amazing how things work out. Sometimes they're not as bad as you make them out to be. (I remember whining about it in the troubles thread, and I just thought I'd let those who were following it in on what's been going on lately.) And my sister, who was originally thrown for a loop by the news, told me that I have to live my life for myself, and not for others' approval, and I was so happy when she said that. Things are going well.

    Actually Ana Bannana I was thinking of doing that. I was wondering though are the different versions like original and video better quality than the nano and Shuffle?

    That's great news, THC! I love it when things happen in a way that is almost better than you could have hoped. I had a feeling that your sister would come around. Sometimes it just takes a little while for people to process the information and figure out how they feel about it. It sounds like you have a pretty good support system now.

    Critical: Regardless, I made the Dean's list, which is great for my first semester back in 7 years. Now I just have to do this 3 more times.... and then grad school!
    Wow! Congrats to you too! What is it you are studying?

    That is sooooo very true. I'm not in the same situation as you, however, I have lived most of my life for others' approval, real or imagined. Things are much better for me as well

    Keep up being you for you HappyCynic, your whole wonderful life is out there ahead of you for you to enjoy. There are so many more things for you than there were in the 70s.

    Good for you THC! I'm especially glad about your sister, because I could tell the sadness you initially felt at her reaction.

    Good news for today is quite minor, but I awoke feeling well rested and that is a major feat lately!!!

    Good for you mbp! Waking rested is a great feeling. Congratulations on the Dean's list Critical! Sleep to your heart's content. THC - I have also been following your recent journey in Troubles and am so glad to hear you are getting support from friends and family. All the new messages to me here are extremely touching. I started going bare-headed to school now that I have a thick 3/4" of hair. As soon as I get some resolution to my fried computer at home, I'll post pictures with my new digital camera.
    Count your blessings!
