Dear Chrissie,

No one expects you to be "cheery" all the time. That would be like putting on a mask. We want the real you in good times and in bad. That is what a support group is all about.

I hate that your are having such a hard time with doctors. I haven't had such a hard time with doctors myself so I can only imagine the frustration. I wish there was something I could do to help in your situation. About the only thing I know to do is to listen. You are right in venting though. Sometimes that is all it takes for me to get the frustration out. And sometimes I just have to walk through it. Just remember that you are not alone and we well be here to walk through it with you. I will give you as much support as a I possibly can. If there's anything else, please let me know. You are welcome to vent to me any time. You all have been here for me so I surely want to return the favor.

Love, Jenny
