Day 269 This evening I was describing to my sister how, six months ago, I would never have considered going through the upcoming tests and procedures I am facing. I actually remember thinking, "I would rather die than have another colonoscopy, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, biopsy, etc..." But now that I'm faced with the type of chronic pain that requires action, I realize just how much I want to live. I was explaining how I've reached the point where I refuse to let any more of my time and energy be wasted on being sick. I am not letting the pain win. I'm not letting this unknown illness win. And she looked at me with a very confident expression as she said, "VENGEANCE." Yes! Vengeance is mine. Janet
