    Well its been 5 yrs since 5-01-2008 with the rupture of my annie and the lost of my vision.5-04-2008 marked the rerupture..following by emergenecy coiling and a stroke.Thanks to my family and firends and a big THANK YOU to everyone here on BT that has been so supportive and knowledgable of what i was and am going thru.I must admit it was one hell of a life changing experience.The human mind and body can doing amazing things as it learns to adjust to the changes.Vision will never get better.will never be able to drive again(damn) but thats all ok atleast i am still alive and able to do for myself(mostly lol)...

    Thanks Ging and Heidi..Yeah it is great to have survived and made as much progress as i have(thanks in part to all of you guys).The words of wisdom and encouragement has meant so much.Having somewhere to go and ask questions and vent when i needed too has meant alot.
    When it comes to Nat. i have a special place in my heart for her,not sure why,but she just seems like a sweet young angel that deserves only the best.She has always been there with her words of wisdom.June 18th is logged into my brain and heart and i aswell as all of you will be there in spirit with her as she goes thru her surgery and hopefully her fix from her annie.

Everyone here is amazing with couarge in tenfolds, sharing their journeys...it really is a priveledge and an honour to share it with you.

    You deserve every happiness that this beautiful world has to offer.

    Love, peace and light,
    Nat xx

    Congrats, to jimmy and shelly, I've watched from afar and you both have come a long way. I'm on my twelve year from a rupture and every year it gets better and better.

    This place had and has continued to be my place of saviour. Just knowing there are people out there just like us.
    Take care,
    Dawn

    Thanks Nat,Shelly and Dawn.
    Nat has such a wonderful way with her words, they just make you smile.She is so encouraging.I believe you will come thru your surgery just fine, and get right back on track with all your goals without having that nasty annie thingy hanging over your head.
    Shelly , hmmm 6 years is amazing, i am so happy for you. I know it has been tough but keep your head up and that smile on your face,Take it one day at a time.Somehow the annie-versaries seem like just another day now.
    Dawn, i had no idea that is has been 12 years for you, i am so impressed.As a matter of fact, i am kinda speechless and for Jimmy C that saying something(lol).Wish you many more happy and fullfilling years.
