My head hurts

My head always hurts. All I want to do is cry but that makes it hurt more. I hate talking on the phone and I only like visitors sometimes. They said the survey wouldn't change me but it certain has. I wouldn't even go out to lunch today. I just want to be back to my old self again. You know where you don't need a walker to get around or a special toilet or shower.

  2. I can do this. I will do this and I will be OK
    I can do this. I will do this and I will be OK
    I can do this. I will do this and I will be OK

  3. Hi,
    I know you have already been told this but this will all pass in time you will only get stronger. But you have to have the will and fight inside you to do so. I know you have it don't hold it back!!!


  4. You will get there! You have made it through a time that a lot of people wouldn't. You, no doubt, have many more mile stones but you are already achieving them!!! You are still Dana inside....


  5. Thank God you're alive!

  6. Hey Dana,
    Sooooo glad to hear you are progressing nicely.
    Talked with Andrew to check on your progress several times and also checking in on your blog site.
    You have been in my/our thoughts and prayers from here at Spring Lake since day (1) and we continue to keep you there as well.
    Good things take some time, and it sounds as if you are progressing nicely.
    You seem to have such a great outlook and that is so needed for a speedy recovery.
    I/we hope to be seeing you back here in short order as well.
    If you need ANYTHING please let me know.
    Continued great success and improvements.


  7. Dana, glad to hear you are home. You may feel the surgery has changed you, but inside you are the same wonderful person. Keep a smile on your face. You are in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

  8. When I survey the valley from on high...I see fields of serenity, wrapped in flowers, and lush green grasses..babbling brooks and restful shady spots ;)
    After the long journey down, the valley seems taken over by weeds and and cold dark night...
    but look, upon the hills thru the rain and cold...for the sun beams forth its glorious light thru colors of the rainbow...
    It WILL get better precious girl...walk, and rest, walk and rest...some journeys do not allow for the sprint, or the marathon...but will get you there <3
    Love, Colleen, for us all .... way across the United States, but as close as the beat of your heart!
