Although the process of begging for funds for health care is humiliating, when people do respond with kindness and generosity it affirms my self-worth once again and gives me hope in a world where people are all too often cruel or indifferent. I now have received a total of $485.00 towards therapy which is well on the way to 6 total appointments which should carry me through January. Winter is the hardest time for me (and now with fibro brings increased pain) so this is extremely helpful. I know therapy is hard to quantify but it is very effective if you work with the right person. I'm working on the prizes/thank you gifts. I am so thankful to you all. Thanks also to those who boosted the signal.
