      Hi, everyone…

      I just discovered this BB last week and I’m already very thankful for
      the discovery. I participate in several newsgroups on the Web, but
      think you guys (and gals) are…well…just COOL, I guess. I can’t
      think of any other way to put it. :) After having GD for three years,
      I wish I would have found you long ago, but am beyond words of how
      glad I am that I found you now. I thought I knew a lot about this
      stuff until I started reading previous posts. In several respects,
      I am just learning. Thanks for the insights. Also, I must say that
      I am thankful for a close-knit family that is very supportive even
      though they are not sure how to take me sometimes. My greatest
      support though is from my twin sister. She knows me better sometimes
      than I know myself. She’s always there to remind me to get back on
      track, if I stray into a somewhat depressive mood. Always a source
      for laughs. :) I also have a job and supervisor that is very open
      to my needs and doesn’t question my (seemingly) continuous doctors
      appointments over the past three years. My doc is a great guy too.
      He is young and can’t answer every minute question that I dig up
      from the depths of medical texts, but he does his best and has been
      very patient with me. He is always open to information that I give
      him. I’ve bugged him incessantly over the last year as I get ever
      so close to hypothyroid after having RAI in 1994. I have probably
      tried his patience as much as GD has tried mine! :) I would have
      had to tell me to find another doc a long time ago! :D Yes, to
      borrow from Jake, I too am thankful that there are people out there
      who care enough about other people to be willing to share information
      and help when needed or just be willing to listen to someone share their
      thoughts. It’s easy to forget that you have GD, it doesn’t have you
      sometimes. Life does indeed go on and it is good. (thanks again Jake)
      To borrow from a movie I saw one time…Things aren’t always perfect
      but sometimes they are good enough. I wish you hope, courage and
      happiness always.

        My, my, my,

        Haven’t we been a busy bunch on the BB this weekend. I can’t believe all the
        messages!!! Even though I have GD and hypoglycemia life is still good. It is
        different than it used to be but it is still good. I still have my sight, I can
        still make things with my hands for others to enjoy, My mind works well (most of
        the time anyway), and I have family and friends who love me and will do for me
        when needed. I am thankful to know that people still care for one another. This
        BB is evidence of that. I am thankful that people will reach out to someone they
        don’t know other than through letters on a screen and offer help, hope and an ear
        to listen. I am thankful that the Scouting for food drive this last Saturday went
        so well in our area. Looks like we collected about 100 tons of food stuffs for the
        homeless shelters, Salvation Army, and the Hacienda Girls ranch in town. Even though
        we collected 100 tons it will only get them through March of 97 they will have food
        on their plate and will not go hungry. When I feel down I look at people I know who
        are blind, or missing limbs, or paralized and gather strength from their courage and
        happiness. This week and always I wish you peace and happiness. Life goes on and it
        is good.

        I will be thinking of you all this Thanksgiving,
