    You have a positive attitude and you have a strong will to survive. That has been, and will continue to be, the reason for your success.

    You have a strong will for survival. The victim mentality can only hold people back. It's great that you overcame that! Good for you! You really made something of yourself despite a terrible beginning.

    John, you sure had an amazing doctor and it's wonderful that he practiced at the hospital where you were admitted. To be in a coma for 30 days and then to recuperate and relearn how to function is truly an amazing challenge. I'm glad you're back.

    The magnitude of your experience is just as important to share as all the others. No need to feel guilty or ashamed to share. Your desire to share in hopes of helping others is a positive reflection on your true kindness and good nature.

    I can't overlook these things either. It's hard for me to bite my tongue when I need to speak up. But if it's going to hurt someone else, I'd rather just walk away. Unfortunately the other person is left alone to make their lives worse.

    Life does have a way of going on, as you said. The timing was terrible, just when you completed your education you had to make an about face and become a carer for everyone. You deserve a lot of credit for doing that. Sorry about your mom.

    A negative background can set anyone on a difficult path. No doubt about it. It's good you are proactive with seeking knowledge. Too many people prefer to remain ignorant instead, although their circumstances may be the reason for it.

    I used to teach ESOL and can tell you that what you went through was typical. Great job against tough odds. Keep up the good work!

    Sorry to her about the lose of your mother. I am sure your mother is looking down and seeing your accomplishments with being independent and also proud of you.

    I know exactly what you mean. I feel that writing is a never ending process too. I'm always learning something new about how to be successful with it. And I'm also always finding ways to improve prior articles that I have written.

    Hi Jim, good to see you around. I never had a long distance relationship, so I can't offer an opinion. Based on your present relationship, you are the expert. I look forward to seeing your hub on the pros and cons and every aspect of what's involved.
