This is where I get to know that my belief in family really is validated. Although my sense of the pain that goes up and down my right leg is quite real, I'm able to withstand it because of my sense of family.

There is a closing song on one of the Dixie Chicks' albums, "I Hope," and I feel a great deal of hope now, for my spirit is risen again. Instead of rising and falling, I fell and rose.

You just have to want the information
that will set your life free
and open the door to a new reality.
I'm in a new reality because
I'm less apt to be upset.
I'm in a new reality because
I'm less apt to cry at night
when I'm alone.
I can lie here and sleep,
and I'm not tortured
by my outer surroundings anymore.
Perhaps I'm getting better,
and I don't even know it.
