Things seem to be better...sort of. I was in a DARK place before with sooo many negatives on my plate. I've become better equipped to understand/deal with them. Plus, time has helped. .It's still a huge daily battle. I still have balance and speech issues. I feel/fear, what I see as crippling, is visible to everyone else. That's probably a head game and not true. But, I do put A LOT of effort, every day, into making those 2 things less noticeable. It's quite the struggle to do so though. Many, many, many thanks to the folks here for the words that I used to help me get through an extremely rough time. Most notably, and without any intent to hurt anyone's feelings, I'd like to thank the unwavering and ever-positive dancermom
