Sorry got to get used to this community

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.

    I'm just having a few bad days (severe depression) so have a habit of going quiet when I'm like this which isn't a good idea I know.  It isn't anything to do with physical disability as I have suffered with depression for more years than I care to remember.  I'm not looking forward to a funeral next Monday which is for my niece and nephew in law's baby daughter.  The family knew she was going to die as she had Edward's Syndrome and lived for a day but it doesn't make it any easier and I want to be there for them.  I've ordered a chain with a teardrop from SANDS to give to my niece when we see her.

    I'm really sorry to read about your niece and nephew-in-law's daughter @Philippa1961. I can't imagine how you're all feeling right now. I'm sure your niece will really appreciate the teardrop chain.
