Thank you for the kind words, Randy.  :thumbsup:
I know and appreciate your photography as well; you can tell that you have learned photography "the old way" (in a very positive sense) as I did about 30 years ago (when digital photography didn't even exist).

But what Chris wrote struck a chord with me:
"I would still admonish you not to rush into this. I think you should pack them up and put them in storage at least for awhile,out of sight and out of mind  until the pain lessens and your head clears, then decide what you want to do......and ask yourself this: has this "professional" ever truly loved a teddy bear? Does he or she really understand what they're asking you to do? I think you'll be setting yourself up for yet another heartache later when you realize that you've lost BOTH of the things that matter most to you- shouldn't you keep ONE if you can?
Let the bears be their own creatures who are yours alone, and not something you owe to another human, and let them comfort you."

The bears are not the problem, the harmful relationship is.  Maybe there is a way to break the connection between the two and make a new connection between the bears and your new life.   I'm just clutching at straws, here.  bear_ermm  But it is obvious that parting with your bears is very painful and I wish that there was some way it could be avoided.  When I was looking through your flickr account I saw the lovely photos of one of your favourite bears in the playground.  They speak volumes.  :love:

That being said, I have seen some collectors open a Bearpile account to sell their artist bears (although I don't think Bearpile is basically a place for artists).
I too wish you all the best and lots of strength!   :thumbsup:


Couldn't agree more with this bear_original

Hiya BlackmoonBear and thank you very much for your wonderful welcome. I am sorry that this is coming so very late, my apologies for that. The problem has been that I have been out of things for several months cos i've been dealing with health problems and some other things. Sometimes life just interferes with things you really wanna do...But im back now and i'm glad i'm back cos i missed staying a bit in touch here and the wonderful wonderful teddies of course:)

Like you i'm a bit different from others too I guess with my teddies. For me it doesn't have anything to do with childhood either. It's more then anything cos they came in to my life at a point that I was pretty hopeless and down and out. Like you, I believe as well that teddies have souls. The atmosphere in my house has changed tremendously ever since i started with them, even though i don't have nearly as many as you yet...yes i feel loved by them too

About the reactions of other people...yep i'm learning to react the same way. I more and more couldn't ccare less of what some negative people think of my teddies and collecting them bear_original And as you say, it turns out actually that quite a lot of people react very positive to it all once you explain it to them bear_original

Thank you very much for your offer to help me with learning bear making. That too has been at a stand still the pastmonths sadly enough. But i'm picking it up again and i'm currently looking to find a decent sowing machine which would make things a lot easier. I'm pretty sure i'll email you at some point in the near future

Thanks again for your great welcome bear_original

Tammy,
I don't know anything about this disease but have been through the medical ringer since my early 20's.  Let me give you this advice and I hope you take itLOOSE YOUR DOCTOR!   If he doesn't care enough find some information for you, he's not worth a plug nickel.  When you find a new doctor and after you get your records transferred, write this clown a letter expressing your concerns about his apathy!  Make sure you have all of your records first.  I know you live in Canada where your medical system is different, but doctors work for us.  We PAY them for medical care.  They need to realize that patients will not put up with bad service in their office any more than we would put up with bad service at a restaurant. 

Good luck on your quest for answers.  And, try to find a specialist that you can get in to see sooner.  Or, just call that specialist every day to see if there are any cancellations. 

Hugs to you and your son!
Alison


Hi Tammy bear_original I agree with just about everything Alison is saying. I dont know about Sheuermann's disease either, but like Alison have hadmedical probs for years and doctors like the one you are describing are not worth a dime. I really hope the best for you and your son. I know what it's like to have back problems, been dealing with sciatica and a hernia for years.
