It was actually on June 11, but this year I forgot. I kept thinking June 11 was the anniversary of something but I couldnít remember what!
Things are fine now except that Iíve recently had the nerve pain in my toe come back. I know the remedy for that is to get the screw out, so since itís hurting again, maybe Iíll look into that. This would probably be a good time, before the Republicans take away my Obamacare.
Iíve just been looking back through my diary and thinking of all the people on MBNA who helped me that summer. (I hope I helped them a bit too.) Mark, Penny, Ruth, and all the others, I hope you are doing well out there. What a wonderful smart supportive community.
To those who are going through it now: it IS hard, and you have to do everything ďtheyĒ tell you (there are no shortcuts), and you have to put in the time and effort even though you didnít choose this.....but it WILL get better. Bless your hearts.
