    YOU see YOU are big and I am not. I am small. all these symptoms i'm exibiting are that of what happens when serious infection starts.

    Make sure you take the meds to take care of the infection. Try to keep it clean also. You don't want it to get worse. Sorry to hear you may need skin grafts. They must be some pretty bad burns. Try to get some rest and make sure you take care of yourself!!

    If you want to write in all caps, then do so. I do not consider myself to be a rationanal non-crazed... I'm right there with you. You and I are neither big nor small... we are what we are
    and that is fun size!

    It angers me that people around us feel they can vent, have bad days, cry on our shoulders and allow their imperfections to show and yet when we do, people run away or say we are always negative, they do not want to hear it...

    Sweet Bubbles... please take care of you. I am saddened that you are suffering so. Please get the help you need for the infection and pain... And for your loving light, your inner spirit that is hurting, try, as hard as it may be, to do something that is just for you, something that brings you comfort.

    I Love You and I am not going anywhere!
    I have acheived my dream of being a kyte, for a single day, riding the wind. The anchors that held me down lifted... I was set free.. Now my journey of healing is possible. Gra' Bonnie

    Bubbles -
    I echo what everyone has said. I am not going anywhere. I understand what it's like to loose friends over your mental illness, I have lost a few. Like Bonnie said, I don't get it because they are allowed to vent and whine about their lives, but once I say anything...they're uncomfortable. TOO F***KING BAD!! Real friends stay with you. Hang in there.
