When a good bra just won't cut it.

Wednesday - Who is your biggest supporter?

And when I'm talking about bras, of course I'm using another word for support.

While my husband is amazing, I wouldn't consider him my greatest supporter... because he is 100% as involved with Elise's care as I am. He is the best partner-in-crime at battling this disease I could ever ask for.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; I would climb to the highest speedbump in north Texas (there aren't any mountains or even hills around here) to proclaim the on-line D community as THE best support system I could ever ask for. Especially the D-Mom and Dads. Without them, I would be curled up into a ball; a quivering mass of jelly and most likely certifiable by now.

If I ever have a question; they are there. A rant; they are all ears. They cheer on our triumphs and cry with us when we despair. Best of all, they get it. I love these people like family, and most of them I've never even met in real life.

My only complaint is that they are scattered all over North America.

People, we need to start work on that commune!


  1. Love your title!!!! Very funny :)

  2. You crack me up! Thanks for being there Joanne!

  3. Totally funny and I so get it. Thanks for your blog and for sharing your life with the D.
    I think we honestly need to all get together at some kind of convention - wouldn't it be a blast?????

  4. Definitely need to get to work on that commune!

    Love you, Joanne!

  5. You make me smile, New Friend!

    Have a great day!

  6. I was up last night thinking we all need to be close together! Non-D families just don't fully get it. As I sat awake, waiting for the next check I was wondering if any of you (D families) were up? If so, I would have liked to have chatted... Do we need a phone directory and a little light that comes on when another mama is up???
    Great post Joanne

  7. Joanne, you are one of a kind. And I 100% mean that in a good way! I love who you are. You make my days better...and that is a gift for sure!

    Love ya!

  8. Awwww!! We love you too, Joanne! =)

  9. I have to agree with my wife on this one ... I am amazing :^)

  10. Love this post and I couldn't have said it any better. There is a wonderful comfort to be able to tell the tale of your latest D adventure and know that you have friends who are nodding their heads and take the time to respond to our challenges. Our community is a gift. Thank you Joanne!

  11. I can totally agree with you on this one Joanne, this a great community and I love that we have so many who understand life with D.

    Thanks for the great post, you made me smile today :)

  12. Your title had me singing a line from a long-forgotten song: "over the shoulder boulder holder". Hee.

    Lovely post, made me smile. :)

  13. BIG SMILE!!!!! Thanks for another wonderful post :)

  14. This one is for you, my friend. . .

  15. COMMUNE!!! COMMUNE!!! COMMUNE!!! (In "party-like" chant voice)...yes I am CRAZY.

    LOVE THE TITLE too sweetie.

    I wouldn't be where I am without "The INNER CIRCLE" - I think that is what I am going to call you girls...
