I, too, remember... I'm not disagreeing with the gist of this thread, and I'm still fighting, but it is rather dismaying to find ourselves fighting the same old battles all over again--as you say, battles we thought we had already won. I also had hopes that I would be leaving my daughter a better world, and maybe, just maybe, when all is said and done, that WILL be so. The difference is that she must now fight alongside me, when all I wanted was for her not to have to struggle as I've had to. But I will never give up, and I will never allow myself to lose hope. I'm too tired just now to post much more, but did want to acknowledge your statement as valid to me.
