    What was one of the lowest points in your life, and what was one of the finest?

    I was on a major high after I gave birth to my baby and one of the most recent lows for me was when I lost my granna.

      Awww I know the feeling cashmere, there IS no high that compares with the birth of a new baby, and when my elderly mother finally passed two years ago after a lengthy illness...it nearly tore me apart.   Thanks for answering.

    I'd rather not remember the lows....but only milestones...! One of the most special moments of my life was when after working for a schizophrenic patient of mine for a year...(it was a very very difficult case)...I finally saw her condition improve dramatically! I still break down thinking of that first time she smiled in years....! smile

    I live for a day. Success sometimes gets into head and failure takes us down. Confucius said, live life like you're going to die tomorrow. Hey that's not from Confucius, I don't know who said that.
