    Ok - I"ve just made those lists, and guess what, you lost! I just proved that I could not live near the excellent life I have here anywhere else in the world. And it wasn't even close in the end.

    It didn't "have" to happen, but it "did" happen. Why ask why?

    Saturday I took a Vietnamese family sailing. Their eldest son, Thein, suffers from MD. Why did it happen to him?
    Yesterday I took a young girl,Emily aged 19, and her mother sailing. Emily suffers from FA, Friedreich's Ataxia. She found out when she was 15 and will now will suffer from a progressively worsening disease.

    Stuff happens... it's what we do with it that matters.

    I'll admit to asking "why" less often now, but why did it have to be SO bad instead.
    Seeing my sweet husband struggle to breathe and choke brings it on.
    Wasted time I know and try not to dwell on it.
    Good for you Rbrauer for taking people sailing and making a difference in their lives.

    A friend I had died of FA, and I had dog with it. The dog got an experimental shunt, and lived decent life. Both were important to the study of the condition, as I was to the surgeries I got in the 60's.

    I guess if I had not lived with the things I live with I would not have lived at all.
    sure, why the hell not? I still think there is hope to recover. we are near, and I think I will be one to get cured. Why the hell not? May as well wait around and see what happens, can't dance, but I couldn't before anyway.

    I think seeing my kids suffer, or any of my loved ones is much harder than living in it. I was helpless when it was them suffering. I try not to suffer too obviously because I am aware of how much it hurts the other person.
