It doesn't have to be only your support for loss, but even just who you turn to when when the world has got you down......

I have to say for me one of my sisters is a great sounding board, both regarding my mc's as well as regular life gripes. My nice is a great pick-me-up when i have just had a bad day. She understands me really well & can usually get me to at least smile. Joel is good sometimes, other times I think he just makes me more ornery - LOL, it really depends. Last but not least I know I can always count on you ladies to hear me out & lift me up!!!

Well when it comes to talking things out, it's usually my Dh. But when he gets on my nerves it's you Beckie! I have a couple other friends who are great cheerleaders, but usually for different things if that makes sense. You Beckie I can call anytime and you always have great advice! and then there's my son. Sometimes when the world got me down I just look at him and remember why I fought so hard, for so long. I know it's so cliche but it really is all worth it.

My Buddy Chris. No matter what's wrong, he's there to listen, provided guidance, make me laugh, etc... I don't know what I'd do with out him.

Of course I have others I can and will talk to, Jenn, Sara etc... but Chris is going to top that list...

Oh Norina - I feel the same way! I guess I lumped you in with my JM girls... I have been very fortunate in finding support through this all. I had very little when I started out (basically it felt like none) and after time I really became very close with my one sister (I say that as I have several sisters - but one that has been instrumental in helping me heal)...and then through coming to JM I gained even more support. I don't know what I would have done without that as I was in a VERY bad place at that time. I think getting the right support is CRUCIAL.

My sister..... I would be so lost without her.... She seems to 'get' things more than anyone else. AND of course the ladies here at JM are darn amazing!

Chris, hands down. Recently, a co-worker has been great support. (Now that she's willing to talk about her loss.)
