    Loneliness (to be specific, going through it alone) Seriously this is hard to do with one word!

    That it will never go away when it does I fear the slightest movement or jolt will trigger it to come back.

    Thinking you’ve got a brain tumour or something equally life threatening. No matter how often I get an attack, I am always scared that it’s not going to stop.

    Almost impossible to put it into one word… also big are the meds a person needs to take, the depressing issue of not being able to accomplish much, never knowing if you’ll be able to drive yourself home from town, very hard to make solid commitments… on and on. I keep hoping we’ll all do better one of these days! Oh well, face toward the positive, we can’t let it define who we are!!
