Dear Dee, What wonderful news! Every time someone goes to Scranton, I have
the mental pictures from my time there. What a deal! Now if I didn't "take
it easy" because I felt so darned good and just had to savor it all....can I
get by with telling YOU to "take it easy?" Well...I'll try. I frustrated
my own recovery by charging around and then getting overly tired which would
set me back. Physically it didn't hurt me...but emotionally the roller
coaster was more difficult the way I did it. I wanted it all "right now."
I finally decided to work hard at "taking it easy" and that little mental
trick (by nature I HAVE to work hard at SOMETHING) has kept me content.
Those docs are just...the best...aren't they? My best wishes for your
continued happy days. Love, Mary
