I've covered many tear drops with embellishments when I'm making challenge cards, seriously. Let yourself cry, let yourself celebrate. I cry every time I see a commercial for the charity walks and I cry every time I do one. Find me around here (I'm almost always on during the day) and we can get all sappy together.
Victoria-- Big hugs right back at you, (and others who have responded). These tears are a part of my life, and I won't let them slow me down. In a way, I'm grateful for them. They remind me that I'm not alone-- There's a connection with other survivors and folks who are impacted by the disease. Denial is a lot harder with wet eyelashes and runny nose.
Also, it cleans out the sinuses and improves the economy-- Buy stock in Kleenex!
