Hi Donna,

Congratulations on your 1st anni-versary, I know it was really hard for you in the beginning but I am so happy to know that you are doing really well, I know you still have days and I get those too but the important thing is that you are here, you have a wonderful family and friends here.

Have a wonderful family day, I think that's a great plan for today, enjoy every minute of it.

Always remember to take it easy and look forward to the 2nd anni-versary.

Take care Donna,

Myra xx

Hello Donna :) Congratulations, that is most definitely, the worst bit done with! You say

It has been an amazing journey That is the very word, we learn so much about ourselves don't we? I think I would still be blundering around in the dark without Behind the Gray, so I'll join you in thanking our Karen and Keith ( and anyone else involved) a site like this is not only supportive it's d*** hard work!

Hey Donna

Have sent you a text but I'll say it on here too


I am so proud of you for how far you have come and what you have achieved in the last year. No need to thank me either hun - I know what it feels like to be where you were and this site has helped me through it too. The best thing is, I know I've found yet another friend for life through this wonderful site - so I'll join the others too in saying a very BIG thank you to Karen and Keith for their hard work and commitment.

Hello elaine

I dont know how my family felt x we dont talk about it much my dad did phone me and we had a chat so it must have been on his mind.

Your mother is really lucky to have you to talk to..........My family see the past has past but since my sah it has changed me has a person but not in a bad way I tell my family that I have been given a gift and look at life in a very different way x x x x

I take evrything in now every smile my little boy does and every cuddle he gives me x x

on my year mark I must admit that I was emotional but also very happy to have survived, but i also felt angry that I went through it in the first place and still ask why me............its all very emotional to me and have these days from time to time..........

I am so happy I have gone past the year mark now though because I keep telling myself well it hasnt happened in the last year so why would it now ie fainting or another bleed ( my fears ).

tc and be proud of yourself for how far you have come TOGETHER.....

love donna xx

Hey there

She has hasn't she Brenda. I remember when I first met Donna and she was having a very tough time. I went over to see her on her birthday - she had no idea I was going to see her and the look on her face was priceless. She's got stronger day by day and I'm so very proud of her and how far she's come.

You'll love her when you meet her Brenda, she's so bubbly and full of life :P

See you soon
