    This diary illustrates why I never have to write one.  Sooner or later someone will.

    The last three years has been so good comparatively speaking to the thirteen that preceded it.  You could say I was robbed but then again I'm inclined to say I have been granted a wonderful boon by having my life restored.

    A Swedish firm invented a medical device for me that treats the symptoms of my illness and I have my life back although the illness going on for so long has resulted in a partial disability.

    I have a business partner in my husband and that is what has enabled us to survive and even thrive.  When I couldn't get out of bed, I didn't have to.  When I could work it was a boost to our small service business.

    I'm still not employed full time and that brings me to the crux of the matter.  The real meat of this diary is the question of "How much are people worth?"

    Perhaps some have said it better, but I have had a lot of time to reflect on this particular question and the answer that satisfied me is- how much are they are loved?  Doesn't matter if they are worthy of love, doesn't matter if they are a good person, a productive person, or a beautiful person.  It really comes down to whether or not someone loves them.

    I am a lucky person.

    Your wife is a lucky person.

    God knows I need a crutch at times To help this gimpy soul of mine along But not a Burning Truth That we must kill each other over.-Ric Masten
