My last trip to the doctor revealed that I have Epstein-Barr. The CT scan was clear, which took alot off my mind because I was thinking Hodgkin’s for awhile. The energy level is slowly creeping back up. I’m so grateful for this website. Just reading about and looking at all the wonderful projects keeps me inspired and determined to get better so I can get back to a hobby that I’ve fallen in love with! My doctor said to say thank you to all of you. You all give me the strength and will-power to continue to get better. During this down time I’ve been taking my online degree program…project management and playing with SketchUp. I want to use my degree in the construction industry, especially residental. My ultimate goal is to form a company that delivers quality construction without ripping off the client. A lofty goal I know, but you have to dream big to get big results! And this community has proven to me that there are still craftsman out there who take pride in their work! God bless you all!!

Glad to hear things are doing better. I’m especially glad to hear it’s not Hodgkins! Hope you keep getting better!

Hope you are feeling much better soon. It’s good to know you find the rest of us good for something besides wasting internet bandwidth. :-)
