I'm certainly not going to allow that. Last night after seeing the MC I went out to the pool hall for the night. Had a good time hanging out with some familiar faces from OUTSIDE the home. A couple friends who know the situation seemed pretty surprised to see me out so soon.
I've gotten so much support from friends I didn't know I even had. People I considered nothing more than acquaintances who have taken time out of their days to call me, wish me well, and offer support. I mentioned this to a friend last night who said, "You have much more affect on people than you realize." This support has gone a long way to help me recover as quickly as I have. I hope someday to be able to show each of them how much I appreciate the support they've given me.
