Thank you all for the encouragement!

Thank you all so much for the encouragement! The anxiety along with the pain is a Bear! I feel so alone and it is great to have this website. I stumbled on it accidently and I'm SO glad I did. All of your suggestions and info were very helpful. It's good to know that my feelings are normal and part of the process.



Your'e Not Alone

I am so glad that you found this site. It has helped me and so many others. As wonderful as my family and friends were to me after my PM, they just couldn't understand. This was the place I could find a comforting word and encouragement.

I promise that the pain will ease and the anxiety will lessen. Believe it or not there will be a time you actually don't think about your PM every single minute. Later you'll realize that a day or two has gone by when you haven't worried or thought about your PM. Eventually, it will be just another "part" that is there and not odd at all. Okay, maybe still a little odd--but not so terrible!

Let us know how you are doing. Ask questions and vent as needed. We are here!
