Just a quick post today to note that I am so glad to be hearing from many new readers this week! There is definitely comfort in knowing that you are not the only person in the world going through something. (Of course I know that I am not, but when I don’t know anyone else with the same (or even a similar) problem, it makes me feel pretty alone.) I look forward to getting to talk with some of you in the future. I very much appreciate your kind thoughts and support, and I offer my support to you as well.
Also, for anyone who might be interested, there is a Yahoo! group for people with balanced translocations that I find incredibly helpful. It is just an email list where people can post stories, ask questions, or simply vent. It is a lifeline for me and a connection to a group of people who can definitely relate. Some of you may wish to check it out.
