I would like to inspire and be inspired, support and be supported. I don't like to "harp on" about my condition but it would be nice to have friends who understand the difficulties and also know the joy of being given another chance at life and making the most of it.
I am most definitely a "glass half full" person who likes having friends but a close friend on the same wavelength would be wonderful. Most of my friends who know, find my condition embarrassing (understandably I suppose) and even blush when asking how I am. I like to bring some humour into it and after all the other option was death so it has to be a good condition really. It would be nice to have a laugh about the funny things that inevitably happen but be ready with a sympathetic ear when needed. Do get in touch if you are like-minded. Can't wait to hear.
