#4 says so much for me. I lost my Dad to cancer, and my mother has survived it but not before going through hell and back. I often would just watch her sitting in a chair, while she'd be reading or knitting, and knowing the pain and hell she was going through, yet there she sat as peaceful as the night sky. I enjoyed everything you wrote, and it was a good time for me to be reading it, when I'm feeling scared, and not feeling positive about how I can do this, and that tomorrow will come whether I'm in a bad place or not. So thank you. I appreciate your thoughts.

DOQ's post is right on the money. I am so thankful to her for posting this AND for sticking around after coming off Subs...we need that on the internet and on these boards.
So, thank you DOQ for not only being upbeat and positive, but for being honest and returning to give us taperers hope :)

I fully intend to stay here the whole course of my taper and to come back after my jump to encourage others. I know how frightened I was by everything I read on the internet...and this was the first board I came to that offered a positive atmosphere. Thank you romeo, ladder, hatmaker...for being so welcoming and supportive when I first posted.

Thank you to all the newer ones after me...that joined hands unseen together with me....for us to support each other during this time. No, it's not easy...but as DOQ says...it's a pretty good reminder of why we never want to come down this road again. I knew going into this that I would suffer some w/d...I just wanted it to be as little as possible. I keep telling myself "slow down, stabilize at each drop, take a few days to recoup and move forward". Reach out to to others here if you need them. Slow and steady wins the race :)

Well, thank you all for the very kind words. I'm touched.

I am glad that I wrote this post...it's nice to be able to look back and have this record of how I was looking at things all those months ago.

It's easy, as time slips by, to forget those hard-won lessons. I get caught up in the grind of the day-to-day and if I don't make a practice of staying grateful and remembering where I came from and where I hope to go, then I lose perspective. So I'm glad to be reminded, I'm glad to still be here, and I'm thankful that we all have this forum to help us on our journey.
