>Here is what I learned.   It takes a very long time to recover even after you get out of the hospital.  AND THAT IS OK !!!!!  Do only what the doctors say you can.  Do exactly what the doctors say you can.  and this last comes from a 400 year old text that you may recognize.  Aside from a healthy discipline, be gentle with yourself, You are a child of the earth, no less than the trees and the flowers ... you have a right to be here.

Thank you for sharing your story and your hard-won advice.  If I may take just a moment for a minor point -- sorry, it must be the librarian in me -- the lovely text you quoted is 80 years old.

It loses none of its charm or wisdom by being of a younger vintage, but I think it a good thing that the author should be acknowledged.
