Yesterday's post on atheism, cancer and me produced a deep and interesting comment thread — Lots to read there.

alumiere continues to speak frankly about her health, in ways which resonate with my own discussions — Tough times, tough topics. Though on the good side, I was reminded (again) this morning that some of my best pain control can come from exercise, at least for lower grade pain. (Ie, not immediate post op surgical pain)

Thank you. I am glad my writing is in some way helping you; I know what you've been saying lately has motivated me in a lot of ways.

Also, (you'll probably laugh at this) I now feel the need to properly capitalize and punctuate in my journal and comments because professional writers are reading and reposting it. As greygirlbeast pointed out, the style that carried over from my paper journals and my desire to piss off my HS AP teacher is a bit annoying from a 43 year old.

I still need to work on my run-on sentences and paragraphs though - train of thought journals; it's a difficult habit to break.
